He also provided the voice of Doctor Fate in Justice League Unlimited. He also played Antoine Laconte, a male prostitute in Rob Schneider's comedy Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo (1999) and made a cameo appearance as Antoine Laconte in Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo (2005). He also acted in the American supernatural series, Charmed, where he played the evil demon Zankou, nearly killing the Charmed Ones.
