Ben Feldman is an actor who began his career on stage and went on to pack a considerable list of film and TV credits. He is also a businessman. Here are all the facts you need to know about the star whom you might have known for his role in The Perfect Man from 2005.

Ben Feldman was born in May 1980. He was born in Potomac, Maryland. He was born to a certain Robert Feldman who was a Jewish advertising executive. Ben grew up practicing both conservative and orthodox aspects of the Jewish faith. He attended Winston Churchill High School in Potomac and is said to have been involved with theatre in school and camps at the age of six. Ben Feldman attended Ithaca College in New York where he earned a bachelor of fine arts degree in acting.

While we do not know so much about his mom and siblings, we are compensated by the fact that we know his famous aunt, Susan Feniger the chef, restaurateur, cookbook author, and radio and TV personality who was born in Toledo, Ohio who attended Pitzer College in Claremont, California and made a name for herself as a chef of repute in both Chicago and Paris.

Ben Feldman is 39 years old.

Ben Feldman – movies and career

Ben Feldman’s career debut on screen came in 2003 in one episode of the show “Less Than Perfect” on ABC. Two one-episodic appearances in two other series and he was ready to take on a bigger project. He did. In 2005 up till the next year, he was Josh Reeves in the sitcom “Living with Fran” on The WB for 26 episodes. This turns out to be the second-biggest appearance of him on TV.

The biggest one came between 2009 and 2014 when he played Fred in the legal fantastic comedic drama “Drop Dead Diva”. Here, he played the role of Fred, the angel who was in charge of Deb (a plus-sized lawyer played by Brooke D’Orsay who went to heaven then found out she was not so bad and then pressed the return button to come back to earth); Fred was demoted to be Deb’s guardian angel and worked as a mail clerk in the firm to keep watch on her. He played this role in 38 episodes as a recurring member of the cast in seasons one and four, main cast member in season two and three, and a guest star in the sixth.

While on the set of “Drop Dead Diva”, Ben Feldman began acting “Mad Men”, a series produced by Lionsgate and aired on AMC. He joined the series in season five of the show as Michael Ginsberg a Jewish part-time copywriter who happens to be socially awkward – and a virgin to add to the hat. He was in this show till 2014 and was nominated for Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series in 2012.

After “Drop Dead Diva” and “Mad Men”, he began, in the same year (2014), to play the role of Ron LaFlamme in HBO’s “Silicon Valley” (8 episodes), then NBC’s “A to Z” (13 episodes), and a voice role in “Big Hero 6: The Series” (come on, didn’t we just write about someone who was part of this show?).

In the film aspect, Ben Feldman has double-digit credits. He was in the comedy film “The Perfect Man” in 2005. This film is about how a daughter pretends to be her single mother’s admirer in other to make the mother happy. Feldman played the role of Adam Forrest, the classmate and admirer of the protagonist and daughter (of the single mother) played by Hillary Duff. In 2008, he was in “Cloverfield” a film that revolves around five young New Yorkers fleeing from a monster and various other smaller creatures that attack the city during their party. One of such five is a certain Mike Vogel.

Feldman was also in “Friday the 13th” (2009).


Ben Feldman is married to Michelle Mulitz the actress who is known for her roles in movies such “Sluts, Bitches, and Whores!” from 2012. He met her in 2002, fell in love with her in 2012, and proposed to her in 2012. The couple got married on October 12, 2013, at Smokey Glen Farm in Gaithersburg, Maryland.

The couple is blessed with two kids. The first child was born in November 2017, a son they named Charlie Milton Feldman. “It sounds like a terrifying thing to me,” he told US Magazine when he was expecting the second baby. “Fortunately all of our friends with more than one kid are very honest and let us know that it is just a nightmare. … We have real friends who say, ‘One is one and two is a thousand.’ So we’re looking forward to that.”

The second child was born in May 2019.

Net worth

Ben Feldman is not just an actor and entertainer, he is also a business tycoon as he is co-owner of a wine label called Angelica Cellars. From what I think I know of wine label owners, they must be drowning with drunkenness or with money. Not Feldman. From what we hear of him, he is worth 1.5 million and that is not being drunk with money.

Ben Feldman is 5 feet 8 inches (or 1.73 meters).
