    Riz is from London and is of Pakistani origin. But if you watched The Night Of, you'd know that he can also pull an accurate NYC accent.

    You might think he looks familiar because he starred alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in Nightcrawler.

    And besides killing it as an actor, he's also a rapper.

    Riz is a part of a group called Swet Shop Boys. They just recently release a single, "Tiger Hologram."
