Abraham Rubin Hercules Benrubi (born October 4, 1969) is an American actor known for his regular appearances as Jerry Markovic on the long-running U.S. TV drama ER and for his first role as Francis Lawrence Kubiac III, aka "Larry Kubiac" or "Kube", on the early 1990s series Parker Lewis Can't Lose.


Personal life

Benrubi was born in Indianapolis, Indiana, the oldest son of Patricia and Asher Benrubi, who was a radio personality[1] known as "Smash" to St. Louis radio audiences. Benrubi graduated from Broad Ripple High School in Indianapolis, Indiana, the same high school alma mater of David Letterman and former New England Patriots star Rosevelt Colvin.


Benrubi's first major role was on the show Wings, as Roy "R.J." Biggins, Jr., Roy's gay son. He would appear as R.J. twice: once during the show's third season, and again during the sixth season, shortly after he began working on NBC's ER.

Between the first and second seasons of Parker Lewis Can't Lose, Benrubi and co-star Taj Johnson worked as roadies for No Doubt's first tour.

Benrubi starred as one of the main characters in ABC's show Men in Trees, playing bartender/millionaire Ben Tomasson. This was a role where he got noticeably more main dialog and depth than with his previous longtime characters on ER and Parker Lewis Can't Lose, which primarily consisted of supporting dialog. Ben Tomasson was described as "the cuddliest TV character since Jorge Garcia's Hurley on Lost" by TV-critic David Bianculli.[2] Other previous work includes playing Mose in the 2003 western Open Range. He frequently voices characters on Adult Swim's stop-motion animation show Robot Chicken.

Following the cancellation of Men In Trees in early 2007, Benrubi returned to the cast of ER in late 2008 for the show's final season.

Benrubi played a young Dan Conner, the character portrayed by Goodman, in a flashback episode of Roseanne.
