Davitian joins Mac in ‘Starting Under’

Duo to play middle-aged divorcees in comedy

“Borat” thesp Ken Davitian has wrestled his way onto Fox’s upcoming Bernie Mac comedy “Starting Under.”

Auds got an eyeful of Davitian’s hairy, rotund form in “Borat”; he’ll likely be more covered up in the Mac vehicle. Davitian is set to play Ken, a fortysomething employee at the liquor warehouse owned by Mac’s son.

“Starting Under” stars Mac as a recently divorced man who moves in with his son and goes to work at the warehouse. Both middle-aged divorcees, Davitian’s and Mac’s characters hit it off, socializing and chasing women together.

Beyond his turn as Azamat Bagatov in “Borat,” Davitian’s credits include “Holes” and the upcoming “Get Smart.”

On TV, Davitian has appeared on “Gilmore Girls,” “Six Feet Under” and “Ghost Whisperer.”
