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.
