Early life

Thomas was born in New York City.

He graduated from New York's Professional Children's High School already a veteran of the Broadway stage.

Thomas made his onscreen debut in an episode of Are You Afraid of the Dark? about a possessed camera that destroys everything it shoots entitled The Tale of the Curious Camera. He also appeared on Law & Order twice in 1996, playing different characters each time.

His screen work includes the independent movie called Illtown, The Rage: Carrie 2, and James Toback's controversial motion picture Black and White in which Thomas co-starred with Robert Downey, Jr. and Jared Leto, the title role of Canadian shock-comic Tom Green's Freddy Got Fingered, and as the stereotypical Jewish character Rosenberg in Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle (2004) and Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay (2008) opposite David Krumholtz.

From 2001–2002 Thomas starred in the television series Off Centre with John Cho. He returned to the small screen in the sitcom 'Til Death for two seasons, until Fall 2008, when his character was removed from the show for budget reasons. However, Thomas's character returned in the 5th episode, which aired Wednesday, October 8, 2008, without any explanation as to his absence in the first four episodes. He has also appeared in the CSI: Crime Scene Investigation episode "No More Bets".
