Eli Raphael Roth (born April 18, 1972) is an American film director, producer, writer and actor. He is known for his role as Donny "The Bear Jew" Donowitz in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds for which he won both a SAG Award (Best Ensemble) and a BFCA Critic's Choice Award (Best Acting Ensemble), and for bringing back R rated horror at a time when studios were only making PG-13 films. He is part of a group of filmmakers dubbed the Splat Pack, because of their dedication to the genre and their relentless horror films which reinvented the genre for the modern age.
