Most widely recognized for his recurring role on Fox's eighth and final season of the TV hit show 24, Negahban played Jamot, an IRK (Islamic Republic of Kamistan) delegate and confidant to President Dalia Hassan (Necar Zadegan) during the politically delicate United Nations Conference.

After the Revolution began to take hold in Iran, Negahban went to Germany where he continued to hone his theatrical skills before arriving in the United States.

He is fluent in English and Farsi, and in his spare time he enjoys traveling, studying anthropology, shooting pool and playing poker.
