Kevin Weisman (born December 29, 1970) is an American film, television and stage actor. His best-known acting role was that of Marshall Flinkman on the television series Alias (2001–2006).

Early life[edit]

Weisman was born to a Jewish family[1] in Los Angeles, California. He pursued acting at a young age, participating in local drama festivals in and around the Los Angeles area (DTASC). He received a BA from UCLA's prestigious School of Theatre/Film/Television and also studied at New York's Circle in the Square Theatre. As a founding member of Buffalo Nights Theater Company, Weisman has produced and acted in over fifteen award winning shows in and around the Los Angeles area.

Stage credits[edit]

Weisman is a founding member of the award winning, critically acclaimed, Buffalo Nights Theatre Company.

Weisman's stage résumé with Buffalo Nights includes roles in Arthur Schnitzler's Anatol, Jean Giraudoux's Apollo of Bellac, which received a Garland for Production of the Year and seven LA Weekly award nominations; Madman and the Nun, The Firebugs, Suburban Motel, Ethan Lipton's Hope on the Range, Arthur Miller's Incident at Vichy, Oscar Wilde's Salome, and the West Coast Premiere of Jonathan Marc Sherman's Sophistry.[2]

His other theatre credits include 'Tis Pity She's a Whore, The Greeks (which received the 1999 LA Weekly Theater Award for Production of the Year) and The Goldoni Trilogy. Weisman has also worked at the La Mirada Theater for Performing Arts, where he appeared as 'Gabe' in Donald Margulies' Pulitzer prize winning play, "Dinner with Friends" ("Weisman shows Gabe's touching naiveté, his love of the stability and order of marriage, and his agonized confusion over having to take sides" O.C. Register) and as 'Uncle Louie' in Neil Simon's Pulitzer prize winning "Lost in Yonkers". As Arthur Kellog in Jaime Pachino's "The Return to Morality" ("Weisman’s five seasons opposite Jennifer Garner on TV’s Alias makes his casting as Arthur a particular coup for The Production Company, but as his starring roles in La Mirada Theatre’s Lost In Yonkers and Dinner With Friends have made abundantly clear, the UCLA grad is as dynamic and charismatic on stage as he is on the small screen, qualities which make him an ideal choice to bring playwright Pachino’s surprised and dismayed Conservative Hero to amusingly conflicted life." LA Drama Critics)
