“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.”

i love him! funny that he actually joked saying “i’m not intelligent enough”, because i’ve followed him for a while and I find him to be very sharp and insightful..

# 2

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.

# 4

i actually thought that he was those kind of guys with huge knowledge in current/past public affairs. He played his role perfect!

# 5

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.
