Did you catch Adam Tsekhman (W’02, Teatron) on last Thursday night’s hot new ABC show “FlashForward”?
In the clip above he played “Vlad Petrov”, a drug dealing Russian thug. (and this isn’t the first time a Penn alum played a Russian thug on an ABC show!)
This is getting funny. There definitely seems to be an affinity for Penn alumni on the ABC network!

“At Penn, I got started in acting in Teatron, a Jewish theatre group that was created for Orthodox Jews to perform in plays. No rehearsals or performances on the Sabbath. I started in a show called Fools by Neil Simon. I was the only male who would kiss the female lead. The others were orthodox Jews and they could not do it. So, they gave him the lead role!
I went to Columbia U. for an MFA in Theatre Acting. 2003-2006. In my final year of school, I booked a series regular role on a Russian TV Series called “Zona”. It was the number 1 show in Russia and eventually got me nominated for best actor in a TV series at the Monte Carlo TV festival. I lost the award to Kiefer Sutherland for “24”. After Columbia, I moved to LA to further pursue acting.
Just finished shooting a Lifetime TV Movie in Hawaii called “Deadly Honeymoon” starring Summer Glau (“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”), Chris Carmack (“Drop Dead Diva”, “The OC”, “Into the Deep”) and Zoe McLellan (“Dirty Sexy Money”)….played a supporting lead in the film named Ben who is a Hungarian tourist on vacation on the cruise ship where the movie takes place who gets intertwined in all the action.”
