Dian Bachar (/ /; born October 26, 1970 in Denver, Colorado) is an American actor most notable for his roles in various films by or starring his friends Trey Parker and Matt Stone, such as Cannibal! The Musical (George Noon), Orgazmo (Ben Chapleski) and his most famous role as Kenny "Squeak" Scolari in 1998's BASEketball, as well as making the occasional appearance on South Park. He also appeared as an alien engineer in Galaxy Quest, although the bulk of his scenes were cut, but can be seen on the DVD's "Special Features".
Dian Bachar attended Chatfield Senior High School. Bachar then received his BFA in Film Production at the University of Colorado at Boulder where he met Matt Stone and Trey Parker. From there, he went on to star in the student film, Cannibal! The Musical, for internship credit. Bachar also co-starred with Parker in Orgazmo playing the eponymous character's sidekick "Choda Boy", and played multiple parts in Parker and Stone's short-lived series Time Warped. Bachar shared an apartment with Parker and Stone up until 1997. When BASEketball was in the works, Parker asked David Zucker to change the script to allow for three players on each team (it was supposed to be just two to a team) to allow for Bachar to have a part in the movie.
In 1998, Dian Bachar won a Leonardo da Vinci Award from the Beaux Arts Society, Inc. in the category of Actor, Debut Performance (Film) for his role in "BASEketball"  and an award for Best Actor in the 2012 short film "Coaching Me Softly" at the 48-Hour Film Project.
Most recently, Bachar starred in the horror feature, "The Murders of Brandywine Theater" and the western drama short film, "Homestead". He is the co-owner of Bonobo Mountain Films with partner Carrie Rapaport, and is currently developing a pilot called "My Neighborhood".
