Pablo Tell Schreiber (born April 26, 1978) is a Canadian-born American actor known for his dramatic stage work and for his portrayals of the Polish-American character Nick Sobotka on HBO's Baltimore drug-related crime drama The Wire and as crooked corrections officer George "Pornstache" Mendez on the Netflix series Orange Is the New Black. He was nominated for a Tony Award for his performance in Awake and Sing! on Broadway. He has also performed work for audiobooks.
Schreiber was born on a hippie commune in Ymir, British Columbia, before moving to Winlaw, British Columbia when he was six months old. His American father, Tell Schreiber, was an actor, as is his half-brother Liev. His mother, Lorraine Reaveley, is a Canadian body-based psychotherapist. He was named after Chilean poet Pablo Neruda (his father had a strong interest in literature). His parents split when he was 12 and Schreiber moved to Seattle with his father. After high school, Schreiber enrolled at the University of San Francisco, where he hoped to win a spot on its basketball team. He later transferred to Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and graduated in 2000 with a degree in theatre.
In 2011, Schreiber starred in the Off-Broadway play Gruesome Playground Injuries at Second Stage Theatre. He appeared on the seventh season of Weeds as Demetri Ravitch, Nancy Botwin's drug supplier.
In October 2012, Schreiber landed the recurring role of George "Pornstache" Mendez on the Netflix original drama series Orange Is the New Black. On February 26, 2013, he co-starred as Virgil in NBC's drama pilot Ironside, a reboot of the 1967 series of the same name. He was also cast as a recurring character in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit in its 14th and 15th season.
In 2007, Schreiber married Jessica Monty and they have two sons. They moved from Jeffersonville, New York to Los Angeles, California in 2013. Monty filed for legal separation in December 2013.
