Early Life and Education
Victor grew up in Brooklyn – he was very athletic during his youth and played in his high school basketball team as a power forward. He attended Midwood High School which has a student population of around 4,000; the school was established in 1940 and has a noticeable H shaped building.
After matriculating from high school, he enrolled at Binghamton University where he completed his undergraduate degree. It was during this time that he started to develop a strong interest towards acting. The university is one of four centers in the State University of New York, with a student population of over 17,000. It was established in 1946 and was initially a small liberal arts college, growing into a large research university. It is considered one of the Public Ivies, having education comparable to that of the Ivy League.
Further Education and Rise to Fame
After graduating, Williams enrolled into New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts Graduate Acting Program, and completed his Masters of Fine Arts degree in acting there. Following that, he made his foray into the entertainment industry with a television debut in a small role in “Homicide: Life on the Street” in 1996. He followed this up with guest roles in the previously mentioned series, then in 1998, he played the role of Roger McGrath in four episodes of the show “ER”.
One of his biggest roles would come in the same year, as he was cast to be a series regular in the show “The King of Queens”, subsequently appearing in over 180 episodes spanning nine years. The show ran on CBS, and follows the story of a working class couple living in Rego Park, Queens, New York. The show is the last American live action sitcom which premiered in the 1990s to end its run; it had a brand of comedy which focused on relationships and the behavior within them.
While Williams was working on “The King of Queens”, he had other projects which were mostly guest appearances, including in “Justice League”, “The Practice”, and “Love, Inc.” He also did a few films including a small role in “Bewitched”, plsw lending his voice in “The Animatrix”. After the show ended, he continued working on television for the most part, with guest roles in “Blue Bloods”, “Flight of the Conchords”, and “Fringe”. He also appeared in “The Good Wife” and “The Michael J. Fox Show”.
In 2014, he played the character Detective Jeffries in the series “The Affair” for 14 episodes. The series aired on Showtime and starred Dominic West as well as Ruth Wilson, exploring the effects of extra-marital relationships. Three years later, he worked on the show “Sneaky Pete” as the character Richard, which aired on Amazon and followed the life of a released convict who assumes the identity of his cell mate to avoid his past life.

One of his latest projects is the show “Happy Together” in which he was a series regular for 13 episodes; the show aired on CBS but was cancelled after a season.
For his personal life, Williams is married but no information has been shared about his spouse, even her name, nor when they met and married; they have a child together who has always been identified by his height which has been described by many as towering, at 6ft 5ins (1.96m) tall.
Due to this, he’s been having a lot of problems with his knees especially as he grows older. He mentioned that the only thing that he’d try to do differently if he was given another chance at life is to take care of his knees more.
Despite “The King of Queens” ending a long time ago, he still feels a strong sense of nostalgia towards it and a strong link to many of the characters he worked with during his tenure there. He also does a lot of stage projects, but doesn’t get a lot of attention for them due to theatre being mostly for a particular audience.
