Biography

A versatile character actor, equally adept at thugs and ne'er-do-wells as he was with businessmen and artists, Jared Harris contributed memorable performances to such films as "I Shot Andy Warhol" (1995), "Happiness" (1998) and "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" (2008), as well as television programs like "Mad Men" (AMC, 2007- ). The son of volatile Irish actor Richard Harris, he shared none of his father's penchant for theatrical performances, preferring instead for thoughtful, carefully controlled turns. He soon garnered a reputation for near-complete transformations for each role; from the ethereal Warhol to a scheming Russian cabdriver in "Happiness" and a mercurial John Lennon in "Two of Us" (VH1, 2001) to the buttoned-down English financial officer on "Mad Men." Harris' breadth of talent made him one of the most capable character actors in the business.
