Peter Jurasik (born April 25, 1950) is an American actor known for his television roles as Londo Mollari in the 1990s science fiction series Babylon 5 and Sid the Snitch on the 1980s series Hill Street Blues and its short-lived spinoff Beverly Hills Buntz.
Jurasik was born in Queens, New York. He is the third of four children. He attended the University of New Hampshire, where he appeared in several plays. He lives with his wife and son in Wilmington, North Carolina, and teaches acting for the camera in the Theatre Department and the Film Studies Department at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.
Jurasik is best known for playing Londo Mollari on Babylon 5. He has guest-starred as an entomologist in one episode of MacGyver, CID investigator Captain Triplett in two episodes of M*A*S*H, and Dr. Oberon Geiger on three episodes of Sliders.
In 1998, he wrote Diplomatic Act (ISBN 0-671-87788-7) with William H. Keith, Jr., a science fiction novel wherein the lead character, an actor in a science fiction show, is kidnapped by aliens who think he is the character from the program. The book is similar in tone and story to Galaxy Quest, which was released one year later.
