Top 10 Muslims Making Strides in Hollywood
By Dilshad D. Ali
They may not be major Hollywood players just yet, but Muslim actors, writers, producers, directors, and other artistic professionals have been on the rise over the past decade. You may recognize some on our list as frequent character actors who have gone beyond playing the typical "terrorist" or immigrant roles. Others are less known to the public, though they help shape some of our most popular movies and TV shows.
Drawing on their faith to fuel their work (or help make fun of life), some of these Hollywood folks have been working the scene for years, while others are just starting to make their mark. From shows like "Sleeper Cell" and "The Daily Show" to movies likeThe House of Sand and Fog
, these Muslims have steadily and quietly produced a stellar body of Hollywood work. Meet them now in Beliefnet's guide to the top Muslims in Hollywood.
