Ben-Victor was born Paul Friedman in Brooklyn, New York, the son of Leah Kornfeld, a playwright, and Victor Friedman.

Ben-Victor debuted on the small screen in 1987 in the made-for-TV movie Blood Vows: The Story of a Mafia Wife and on an episode of Cagney & Lacey.

Fifteen years after, beginning his television career with bit parts, Ben-Victor found himself cast in important roles on HBO dramas The Wire and Entourage, as well as making a 2006 appearance as Coach Lou on My Name is Earl.

He portrayed Moe Howard in the 2000 made-for-TV film The Three Stooges.
