George is a jack of all trades!
Born and raised in Mineola, NY, George is the son of James (Jimmy) and Jennie Papadimatos, brother of Matthew and an actor and stand up comedian (SAG-AFTRA and AEA). He is also a world traveler, a comic book expert (especially Spiderman!!!), has a passion for singing and is the King of Karaoke!
He recently booked a recurring role on the hit HBO TV series "The Deuce" as Detective Braden and can be seen in the Season 2 Season Finale! He also accomplished one of his biggest goals, to land a role in a comic book movie/TV series, by booking a co-star role on the hit Netflix series "Daredevil". He can be seen in season 2 episode 6, playing the role of Elektra's Chauffeur. Being a huge comic buff, George hopes this becomes a recurring role and/or opens the door to other Marvel Universe roles. Since Spider-Man is his favorite, he would LOVE to play any one of his awesome Arch Villains! (How about it, Director Jon Watts?)
George is a classic film and sports buff (particularly Baseball). Seriously! Ask him anything........ is known as the "Biggest Yankee Fan In Mineola" (Google it, he comes up!) and even has some Yankees credits to back it up! In 2018, he starred in a NY Yankees TV Commercial that aired on the YES Network! In 2016, he won a "Biggest Yankee Fan" contest sponsored by Major League Baseball and Pepsi Cola and is also known as George from Mineola, "Biggest Yankee Fan in Mineola" on WFAN Sports radio!
George was inspired as a child by many actors, especially James Cagney, Steve McQueen and Robert DeNiro. Two of his biggest comedic influences are Lou Costello and Jack Klugman. He also is a HUGE fan of the modern day comedic style of Ed O'Neill and Kevin James and hopes to work with them someday soon!
George has studied acting for the last 3 years with his mentor, Academy Award Nominee, Chazz Palminteri, as well as taking classes with "Mary Hartman" TV star Louise Lasser, Kimball Studios, Susan Batson, One on One, HB Studios, Weist Barron and Improv at UCB. He has starred in many theatrical productions, including "Two Gentlemen of Verona". He also landed lead and supporting roles in numerous TV shows and independent films, including a Greek speaking role in the 5 Time Award Winning Indie Film "Mommy's Box" which is now available on Amazon and Google Plus. He also had a guest starring role in the Web Series "Marcello".
George is a very versatile performer. Besides his ability to play many dramatic roles, he is no stranger to comedy and loves getting the chance to show off his comedic chops with the hopes of starring in his own TV Sitcom! He has a wide range and is able to charm you and make you laugh one minute and scare the pants off of you the next!
George has performed as a stand up comic in many venues in NYC, including The Broadway Comedy Club, The New York Comedy Club and Greenwich Village Comedy Club. His show is a tribute to his late Dad, Jimmy, and is about growing up in a Greek family. His natural flair for comedy along with his strong stage presence and mimicking/impression/voice skills are what made him a success as a comedian immediately upon his stage debut.
He recently got to showcase his comedic skills while starring in an Off Broadway Play at the ATA Theatre in NYC and again for the Annual Midtown International Theatre Festival as the lead role of "Matt Morelli" in the comedic play "Bromance-A-Roni" directed by Art Bernal.
He also recently worked on 2 TV pilots!
One as a recurring character for the TV Pilot "Wholly Broken" starring and directed by Actor/Singer Tom Humbert, alongside soap stars, Terri Conn and Alicia Minshew and legendary singer, Martha Wash and can be seen in Martha Wash's Music Video "Come Into The Light". The other was a Co-Star and possibly recurring role in the TV Pilot "Riding The D With Dr. Seeds" starring and written by Sarah Seeds!
He also was in a fitness infomercial, and a controversial play named "The Three Joys of Mary", which is being made into a film.
George is currently working on a one man show based on his Hero and Inspiration, his late Dad, called "The Stories of Mister Jimmy", with hopes of making it into a film and TV Sitcom!
