“Me being who I am, I automatically get pigeonholed into some things,” Dev recently told the LA Times. “I do try to look for roles I can mold and change, and writers and filmmakers who aren’t close-minded.”

“I’m not intelligent enough for this show,” Dev joked about his role on The Newsroom. “That’s how I learned about American politics. Wikipedia. Every night.”

    It’s sad he doesn’t have many job opportunities. I find him pretty good at acting and he’s also smart…

    I agree with both of these comments. I really like him and wish he was given more work. I loved Slumdog Millionaire. Also he’s pretty adorable.

    If he depends on wiki he’s an idiot. wiki is filled with lies and half truths people go there to write and edit whatever they want.
