FILM FRIDAY: Actor's Spotlight: Jared Harris

This week we get to know Jared Harris, aka Hodge Starkweather, a little better.  I can already say that from a quick peek at his bio there are some things I never knew about Mr. Harris.


  • Born Jared Francis Harris in  London, England on August 24, 1961.
  • His nickname is "Hot Buns." (I swear to you, this came from IMDb lol)
  • He is 5'11 3/4" tall
  • Son of Elizabeth Rees and Richard Harris, who is a famous Irish actor. 


Despite the fact his father was a famous actor, Jared didn't really want to do the acting thing.   It wasn't until 1980's, while attending Duke in North Carolina when he was cast in a college production.  He ended up majoring in Drama at Duke and graduated in 1984.  When he returned to the UK he joined the Shakespeare Company and did stage acting for years in the US and the UK.  He formed The Sinachie Theater Company (NYC) and still performs in theater.  He's resume is quite extensive, and he's performed in tons of indie films as well as bigger films and TV shows we may all know. (Source, and full resume here on IMDb)

  • Natural Born Killers (1994)
  • Mr. Deeds (2002)
  • The Other Boleyn Girl (TV, 2003)
  • Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004)
  • Oceans Twelve (2004)
  • Law and Order SVU (TV 2007)
  • The Riches (TV series, 2008)
  • Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008)
  • Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011)
  • Fringe (TV series, 2008-2012)
  • Mad Men (TV Series, 2009-2012)

Jared is yet another actor cast for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones that brings a distinguished and experienced career with him, and I very much look forward to his portrayal of Hodge!
