Early life and family[edit]

Abrahams was born in New York. He attended Saint Ann's School in Brooklyn.[1]

Abrahams' great-uncles were actor Mack Gray - long time confidant of entertainers George Raft, Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra - and stuntman and fight coordinator Joe Gray. His father, Martin Abrahams, is an artist.


Abrahams has starred in many films and TV shows. His most notable roles are Bobby in Scary Movie, Dalton Chapman in the horror movie House of Wax and Denny Byrnes in the Robert De Niro-Ben Stiller comedy Meet the Parents. He is also known as "DJ Jonny" on The Ellen DeGeneres Show for season four, replacing Tony Okungbowa. He has been replaced on season five by KROQ personality Ted Stryker due to his wish to concentrate on his acting career in film. He can be seen in the 2009 comedy 2 Dudes and a Dream, (currently in post-production)[2] and has also starred in the Enrique Iglesias music video for "Do You Know? (The Ping Pong Song)".
