Actor Rami Malek, 35, has been making waves ever since he was cast as the main character in USA's show "Mr. Robot". Malek said he was surprised to even land the role, "I'm just not the typical male lead. I was like, 'Come on, guys! They're never going to put me in the role of the young lead. It shows that times are changing, people are more progressive, and I think this is more the look of America than it ever has been, with guys like Aziz Ansari and so many others. It's f--king amazing to see!"
After just one season of starring in the TV drama, Malek was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series... and more amazingly, he won, beating out well-known actors like Bob Odenkirk and Kevin Spacey! Malek's Emmy makes him the first minority actor to win the honor in 18 years, a huge accomplishment for him. But he stayed humble, telling E! that his mind was blown when he heard his name called.
