Shawn Hatosy

One of the most versatile actors of his generation, Shawn Hatosy (Elvis) continues to expand upon his already impressive resume by starring in two highly anticipated films. In addition to Alpha Dog, Hatosy stars in George Hickenlooper's Factory Girl for the Weinstein Company this coming February; in it, he portrays attempted savior to Warhol muse Edie Sedgwick (Sienna Miller).

Also on the horizon is the indie film Nobel Son, in which it is revealed through various twists and turns that Hatosy's character is the illegitimate son of Nobel Prize-winning researcher Eli Michaelson (Alan Rickman). More recently, he wrapped the drama Disconnected, in which he stars opposite Nikki Reed.

Among Hatosy's resume of two-dozen-plus films are Robert Rodriguez's The Faculty, with Josh Hartnett; Wayne Wang's Anywhere But Here, opposite Natalie Portman; In &Out, with Kevin Kline; The Cooler, which once again paired him with his Outside Providence co-star Alec Baldwin; A Guy Thing, with Julia Stiles; Borstal Boy, in which he starred as acclaimed Irish poet Brendan Behan; and Simpatico, with Jeff Bridges.

Hatosy's talent has also afforded him the opportunity to work for several actors-turned-directors, including his film debut in Jodie Foster's Home for the Holidays, Kevin Costner's The Postman and Scott Caan's CineVegas Critics Award winner, Dallas 362.

In the realm of critically lauded telefilms, Hatosy most recently starred as John McCain in A&E's Faith of My Fathers, as well as in Frank Pierson's Golden Globe-nominated Showtime drama Soldier's Girl and the Emmy-nominated Witness Protection for HBO. Also receiving critical recognition is his recent guest turn as a schizophrenic on John Wells' ER.

Hatosy is equally adept at performing in front of a live audience. In his most recent stage credit, he landed the coveted role opposite Al Pacino in Lyle Kessler's Orphans at the Greenway Court Theatre in Los Angeles. Hatosy also received accolades for his stage debut as the title role in the La Jolla Playhouse production of The Collected Works of Billy the Kid. Off-Broadway, he starred opposite Anna Paquin in the Paul Weitz comedy Roulette.

Originally from Frederick, Maryland, Hatosy currently resides in Los Angeles.
