Born in Harlem, New York and raised in New Jersey, Savas' big break came at age 15 when he was selected out of 15,000 actors to play the role of Xavier, AJ Soprano's high school friend in the renowned HBO series, The Sopranos.
In 2003, Savas made his feature debut when he appeared in the award-winning film Roger Dodger alongside Campbell Scott, Jesse Eisenberg and Morena Baccarin.

He has starred in numerous sketches, playing famed characters in The Online Gamer, Psycho Girlfriend and Office Douche Bag.
He also added producer to his list of credits, starring in (and producing) the feature film Bad Roomies, a dark comedy about two guys living together, who after losing their roommate, put an ad out to find a new one. The movie was partially funded by Kickstarter ($75,000 was raised).
