      Željko Ivanek

      Željko Ivanek

      Highest Rated: 100% Mass Appeal (1984)

      Lowest Rated: 28% The Associate (1996)

      Birthday: Aug 15, 1957

      Birthplace: Ljubljana, Slovenia

      Even though most people could not pronounce Zeljko Ivanek's name, there was no denying he made an impression every time he appeared onscreen. Already an accomplished stage star, Ivanek appeared in several film and TV projects, often as conniving and evil men who wore three-piece suits. His performance as a smooth-talking Southern lawyer in "Damages" (FX, 2007-12) earned the Slovenian-born actor his first time Emmy Award nomination and win in 2008, where he went up against his co-star Ted Danson for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.
