Ari Barkan


A young man, who has been referred to by industry professionals as a "rising star", Ari Barkan is truly the definition of that term. Whether it is co-creating and starring in one of the most popular and well known Russian YouTube series entitled "Baba Fira"; or its' working alongside one of his best friends and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson - the phrase stays true. The same can be said of his work in several television shows and independent films; following two co-star roles on Gotham and The Blacklist, Ari proceeded to work alongside the legendary Harvey Keitel in his friend Danny A Abeckaser's upcoming film "First, We Take Brooklyn." Later in 2017, Ari went on to be cast in a recurring guest-star role on "Big Dogs" as a vicious Chechen mob enforcer. He appears in 6 of the 8 hour-long episodes. After wrapping Big Dogs, Ari found himself on the set of Clover, directed and starring Ari's friend Jon Abrahams. The film also stars Chazz Palminteri and Ron Perlman. Ari is represented by Metropolis Artists Agency, Laura Lichen Management, and freelancing with JGD Talent for commercials."
