Adoni has played iconic roles in well-known movies and TV series.  He shares a few behind the scenes stories about some of these roles with specific reference to playing Abu Fayed on the series 24, to playing Quan Chi on the show Mortal Kombat, and to learning to ride a horse for the movie Hidalgo.

Adoni has been around the sport of table tennis for much of his life.  As an adult, he was re-introduced to the classic forms of ping pong and has had great success competing in hardbat, sandpaper, and liha events.  In fact, “great success” understates his achievements as has won national and open championships in classic events.

A special thank you to Adoni for sharing these stories.
