Bio

Ian Gomez is an American actor best known for his starring role as Andy Torres on the television sitcom Cougar Town.

He is also known for his television roles as Danny Sanchez in The Norm Show, as Javier Clemente Quintata in Felicity, as Larry Almada in The Drew Carey Show and as Adrian in Jake in Progress. He was also seen in the multi-camera Lifetime comedy, Rita Rocks.

He starred as the popular character Javier on the series Felicity, as the shameless self-promoter Larry Almada on The Drew Carey Show, and as Danny Sanchez on The Norm Show.

Gomez has also starred in such feature films as My Life in Ruins, I Hate Valentine's Day, Connie and Carla, Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star, Chasing Papi and My Big Fat Greek Wedding.

Gomez's decision to focus on acting began when he was a member of the famed Second City comedy group, where he spent seven years.

He made weekly appearances at Chicago's Improv Olympics, developing his improvisational skills which he showcased when he guest starred on the hit improv series, Whose Line Is It Anyway?.

Other television credits include guest starring roles on George Lopez, Curb Your Enthusiasm, NYPD Blue, Murphy Brown and the television movie Get a Clue.

A self-proclaimed Russian-Puerto Rican-Jewish Greek Orthodox born and raised in Manhattan, Gomez credits diversity as a key to his success.

He is married to another Second City alum, actress Nia Vardalos, acclaimed for her feature film My Big Fat Greek Wedding, which was based on the couple's wedding and Gomez's introduction to this wife's family.

He, his wife, and their daughter make their home in Los Angeles.
