Since moving to the U.S., Diamantopoulos has enjoyed a successful and varied career on stage, small screen, and film.

Raised in Toronto, Diamantopoulos began his career in Musical Theatre. An accomplished singer, his early credits include Forever Plaid, Andrew Lloyd Webber's Music Of The Night and Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, in which he understudied Donny Osmond in the title role.

He received critical acclaim for his portrayal of Che Guevara in Pittsburgh CLO's production of Evita.

Also an established voice-over artist, Diamantopoulos has lent his voice to numerous national TV and radio campaigns.

Of Greek heritage, he took pride in voicing the ancient Greek narrative in Academy Award Winner Jessica Yu's Protagonist. He has also narrated documentaries for Discovery, Sundance and Travel Channel, and currently voices several characters on Fox's hit show American Dad.
