Born on April 17: Ido Mosseri
Happy Birthday Ido Mosseri! This Israeli actor is 42 years old today. Internationally he maybe known for his role in the American movie You Don’t Mess with the Zohan alongside Adam Sandler. In Israel he is famous for his TV series roles, including Lo Kolel Sherot (Service not included), Inyan Shel Zman (A matter of time) and the daily comedy musical drama HaShir Shelanu (Our Song). He also participated in dubbing Animated series and movies into Hebrew.
During an interview following the press conference [of You Don’t Mess with the Zohan], Mosseri still couldn’t believe his good luck. “Some of the best Israeli actors auditioned for the role,” he exulted. “The last four months have been the best of my life. I feel as if I made the NBA.” Mosseri, who, as he put it, is “half-Egyptian, one-quarter Polish and one-quarter Russian,” had warm praise for Sandler as a “very giving guy; he hugged me when we first met, and we played basketball together on the set.” (The Jerusalem Post)
