Rotten Tomatoes: Movies

A handsome Canadian supporting player of Greek parentage, Elias Koteas began his career on stage appearing in NYC productions of "Holy Ghosts," "The Changing Room," "Life Class" and "The Lady's Not for Burning" at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and "Terry Neal's Future" and "Rainbow Dancing" at the Actors Studio. Producer Fred Roos spotted the intense young actor at the latter and quickly cast him in the Disney holiday film "One Magic Christmas" (1985). Since then, Koteas has become a recurring face on screen, while still remaining loyal to his theater roots (i.e., performing in the 1988 Yale Repertory Company's dramatic adaptation of "Kiss of the Spider Woman").

Elias Koteas: Movies, Tv, and Bio

Elias Koteas was born on March 11, 1961, in Montreal, Canada. Both his parents are of Greek descent. Elias attended Vanier College in Montreal before leaving to attend the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City in 1981, of which he is a graduate. He also attended the Actors Studio in New York City, where he studied acting under Ellen Burstyn and Peter Masterson. His film debut was in One Magic Christmas (1985). He has also appeared on stage in "Kiss of the Spider Woman," "Death of a Salesman," "Bent" and "The Cherry Orchard." In 1989 he was nominated for a Genie (Canada's Academy Award) for best actor in Malarek (1988), a true story in which he plays a troubled street-kid-turned reporter for a Canadian newspaper. A somewhat of a breakthrough role for Elias happened in 1990, when he got the role of vigilante Casey Jones in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990) and its sequels. He is one of Canada's most popular actors and frequently appears in films by Canadian directors Atom Egoyan and David Cronenberg. It was Cronenberg's controversial movie Crash (1996) that had Cannes all abuzz in 1996. Elias played Vaughan, a self-appointed "mad scientist" with an unusual fetish--sexual delight in car crashes! The past two years have been busy ones for Koteas, adding six more roles to his resume. As Capt. James Staros, the commanding officer of Charlie Company in The Thin Red Line (1998), he brought sensitivity and compassion to his portrayal of a man who cared about the safety of his men--even at the risk of his own career. In 2000 he appeared in Lost Souls (2000), a thriller starring Winona Ryder, and starred on Broadway with Josh Brolin in the Sam Shepard play "True West." (Source: www.amazon.com)
