I’ve now lived longer in Orlando than anywhere else, and it’s good to see performers who’ve passed through Central Florida being successful in show business. The theme parks bring in a lot of talented people.
Aasif Mandvi is one of those who worked in Orlando for a bit. He’s currently on the CBS supernatural drama “Evil.” It’s got to be tricky shooting on location in NYC when a bus could drive by at any minute, promoting the show you’re in the middle of making.
Mandvi is also playing the dad on Disney Junior’s animated “Mira, Royal Detective” and you probably remember him as a correspondent on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” in the Jon Stewart years.
