Oded Fehr does an amazing star turn in Sleeper Cell (2005), a Showtime series that is actually one of the most nuanced shows I've seen about the post-9/11 world (which might not be saying much for US TV, hah, but it really is good). Also, the hero is a black Muslim, played by Michael Ealy, who's an undercover agent in a terrorist cell in LA. It was nominated for an Emmy. The first season is a gem, but the second season sucks and I wouldn't recommend it.

Sadly most everything else he has been in has sucked -- I mean, I liked the Resident Evil movies as fun brain candy, and there's an awful thriller where he and Alexander Siddig and Saad Siddiqui all menace each other, but there's the considerable hump of Joshua Jackson to get over. (After Fringe I have an anaphylactic reaction to that guy.) He was also in Covert Affairs with Sendhil Ramamurthy, but I didn't see that series. It's such a shame, he's gorgeous and a great actor.
