Early life and education

Shawn Hatosy was born in Frederick, Maryland, to Carol Ann (née Owens), a loan officer, and Wayne Thomas Hatosy, a graphic designer. He has Hungarian and Irish ancestry.[2][3] He grew up in the Loch Haven neighborhood[4] of Ijamsville, Maryland, attended New Market Middle School, and graduated from Linganore High School.[5] Hatosy took his middle name, Wayne, from his father.


Hatosy's two most recent films are Public Enemies (2009), starring Johnny Depp and Christian Bale, and Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans (2009), in which Hatosy portrays Nicolas Cage's partner, Armand Benoit.

Hatosy has appeared in past films such as Soldier's Girl, The Faculty, In & Out, The Cooler, Outside Providence, John Q, and 2007's Alpha Dog.[6] Hatosy auditioned for a leading role in the 1999 film Varsity Blues but lost it to James Van Der Beek.

Hatosy has appeared in such television shows as CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, The Twilight Zone, Felicity, Six Feet Under, ER, Law & Order, Numb3rs, My Name Is Earl and Hawaii Five-0. As of April 2009, Hatosy appears as Detective Sammy Bryant in the NBC/TNT television series Southland.[7] His latest successful roles were that of serial killer named Boyd Fowler on the Showtime television series Dexter.[8][9] He played police officer, Terry McCandless in Reckless.

Hatosy was a singer in his own band, and graduated from Linganore High School in 1994. He also made an appearance in Wheatus's Music Video for their single "A Little Respect".[10]

In 2005, he performed opposite Al Pacino in Lyle Kessler's Orphans at the Greenway Court Theatre in Los Angeles. Hatosy also took on 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.[11] He also performed in Roulette, an Ensemble Studio Theater production directed by Trip Cullman. The characters include a dizzy, distant dad (Larry Bryggman), a sweet, adulterous, alcoholic mom (Leslie Lyles), a steroid-hyped son (Shawn Hatosy), and a wise-cracking, substance-abusing teenage daughter (the Oscar-winning actress Anna Paquin).[12]

Personal life

Shawn married Kelly Albanese in December 2010.[1] The couple lives in Los Angeles with their sons, Jordan Cassius[13] (age 10–11)[14] and Leo Hatosy born in 2012.
