Jared Harris is perhaps a name not often spoken on the tongues of cinematic fans, which is a crying shame. Harris has been a household actor on this side of the pond for so long it is unforgivable to forget him. Born in London (and a proper London geezer, I can tell you), Harris launched his career straight into film playing bit characters in The Rachel Papers, The Public Eye and Natural Born Killers. He had prominence in television movies playing characters such as Andy Warhol in I Shot Andy Warhol and as recurring villain David Robert Jones in Fringe. His latest film, The Quiet Ones, is out on DVD today and Harris is a powerful driving force throughout. But why not check out more of his movies and get acquainted with the brilliant actor?
Honourable Mention: Mad Men and Fringe. He is bloody great in both of them but seeing as this is film, we can’t include them.
