Early life and education
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 Carroll Schreiber, was an actor, as is his half-brother Liev Schreiber. 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 separated when he was 12 and Schreiber moved to Seattle, Washington, 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.
He appeared in the films The Manchurian Candidate, Lords of Dogtown and Happythankyoumoreplease. He also had a recurring guest role on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit as a sadistic rapist, and appeared in the FX series Lights Out.
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.
In 2016, he co-starred as Kris "Tanto" Paronto, GRS team member and former U.S. Army Ranger in American biographical war film 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. The movie was directed and co-produced by Michael Bay and written by Chuck Hogan, based on Mitchell Zuckoff's 2014 book 13 Hours. Pablo Schreiber in an interview with Comicbook.com has expressed interest in portraying James Howlett / Logan / Wolverine in a future X-Men film with Hugh Jackman already having left the role.
