Konstantin is currently working on POWER: Book IV: Force, portraying Rodovan Mirkovic, a Serbian pipeline boss at large. He is very proud to be a part of “Powerverse”, and his captivating performance intrigues Power Universe fans all over the world.
Before Konstantin got cast in Power, he did NCIS: New Orleans, where he portrayed Nicolas Antonich, a “painfully European” gentlemen who “could get you anything, even a submarine”. Here, Konstantin got lucky to work under the direction of one and only LeVar Burton.
In Tales on BET, Konstantin plays a tattooed Russian Drug Lord, Rysiejko. Directed by Robert Munic, this Irv Gotti creation is based on Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg's "Deep Cover".
Konstantin’s video game world work is worth a mention, as he plays the main villain in the best-selling Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare.

Some of the recent credits include Chuck Lorre’s MOM, where Konstantin plays Sergei, Anna Farris’s potential boyfriend with an unusual sense of humor. Working in front of a live audience was an amazing experience due to it’s fast comedic pace and commonality to theater work which Konstantin misses doing very much.
Konstantin had an amazing experience filming the two seasons of the critically acclaimed drama "Ice" (available on ATT, DirecTV and Audience). He captivates audiences playing the heavily recurring character Alexi Yakenev, a pivotal player in the diamond trade crime world of Los Angeles, opposite Cam Gigandet, Jeremy Sisto, Ray Winstone, Donald Sutherland, Rey Gallegos, and Raymond Barry.

Konstantin lives out the titular part of Boris, Croatian tennis player haunted by his past. Directed by Chad Hartigan and written by Ross Partridge (Stanger Things), co-starring Veronica Falcon (Queen of the South).
Konstantin also recurs as the Orthodox priest Father Andrei in several seasons of the award-bathed The Americans (FX) opposite Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys.

In the cartoon world, Konstantin got to voice a few characters in Fast and Furious: Speed Racers, which adds well to his substantial voice over resume of plentiful ADR (Automated or Additional Dialog Recording) and looping sessions for various TV and Film projects.
Konstantin's work in Russia gave him a substantial fan following for the romantic leading role of Dr. Orlov in the hugely successful feature, "Happy 8th of March, Gentlemen!" and comedic parts in "Kitchen" (rated most popular SitCom for several years) and "Eternal Vacation" (A new hit SitCom), as well as a Spetsnaz commando leader in a recent action-packed, futuristic "Mafia - The Survival Game".
