Turns out, there are much worse things in life than being a 40-year old virgin. Just ask Shelley Malil.

The actor, best known for his role in that Steve Carell comedy, has been convicted of attempted murder. Last week, Malil took to the stand and admitted that he stabbed girlfriend Kendra Beebe multiple times in August 2008, but claimed it was an act of self-defense and he was unaware she was the victim.

The jury didn't buy the story.

Among other injuries, Beebe was left with a collapsed lung and chin lacerations. She testified that Malil grew angry after the pair fought earlier in the ay and only ceased his attack when a neighbor came upon him during the incident.

The panel of five women and seven men found Malil guilty of attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon. He could be sentenced to life in prison when a judge makes his/her ruling on a later date.
