He has been nominated for awards for his work in stage, radio, television and film, winning DramaLogue awards for his portrayal of Touchstone in Des McAnuff's production of "As You Like It" and for directing Rick Cleveland's "Jerry and Tom" at Los Angeles Met Theatre in '94.

Rubinek's work on U.S television spans three decades. Some of his American television work includes: two seasons as a semi-regular on "Frasier"; Showtime's award-winning "Hiroshima" and HBO's award-winning drama "And The Band Played On." He also had recurring roles on Steven Bochco's ABC series "Blind Justice," A & E's "Nero Wolf" starring Tim Hutton, "Once & Again" and "The Equalizer." His guest-starring roles include appearances on "Eureka," "Psych," "The Practice," "Curb Your Enthusiasm," "Star Trek: The Next Generation," "The Outer Limits" and "Lost."

He played Jackie Gleason's manager in the CBS biopic "Gleason" starring Brad Garrett and network president Fred Silverman in NBC's "Growin' Up Different." He was also featured in TNT's "And Starring Pancho Villa as Himself" starring Antonio Banderas. Most recently, he was a major guest star on the TNT pilot "Leverage" opposite Tim Hutton. He has also had supporting roles opposite Tom Selleck in two CBS movies for television, "Jesse Stone: Sea Change" and "Jesse Stone: Night Passage."

In 1997, Rubinek directed his first feature—based on the play he previously directed—"Jerry and Tom," by Rick Cleveland. He also was producer on the film along with his wife, Elinor Reid. The film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival was an official entry in competition at Sundance in 1998.

He also directed "Club Land" for Showtime, starring Alan Alda and Steven Weber. In 2002, also for Showtime, he directed "Bleacher Bums," a film adaptation of the popular play about the Chicago Cubs fans at Wrigley Field.

In 2006, Rubinek directed, and together with Elinor Reid, produced the independent feature "Cruel But Necessary," which has been seen in major festivals in North America.

Penguin Books published Rubinek's non-fiction book, "So Many Miracles," an account of his parents' survival growing up in Poland during World War II. Rubinek also wrote and produced an award-winning documentary of the same title for CBC and PBS, which chronicled his parents' reunion with the people who saved their lives during the Holocaust.

Saul Rubinek and his wife, Elinor Reid, live in Los Angeles with their children, Sam and Hannah.
