Boyd Holbrook plays the recurring role of Mykail in Showtime's "The Big C," starring Laura Linney and Oliver Platt.

Holbrook also stars in History Channel's miniseries "Hatfields & McCoys" as Johnse's younger brother, William "Cap" Hatfield, who is badly injured in a logging accident; a splinter ruins his eye and leaves it cloudy for life. Touchy when insulted, Cap proves to be the best rifle shot of the family, and is able to kill from a considerable distance with his good eye.

Boyd Holbrook studied with famed acting teacher and coach William Esper while auditing classes in screenwriting at Columbia University. On a whim, he sent a screenplay to Gus Van Sant, who was so impressed with his talents that he gave him a role in the feature film "Milk," starring Sean Penn. This led to other acting opportunities in films such as "Oranges," produced by Anthony Bregman, "Higher Ground," directed by Vera Farmiga, Rob Reiner's "The Summer of Monte Wildhorn" and many independent films.

Currently, Boyd has been cast as a lead in the sci-fi thriller "The Host," directed by Andrew Niccol and starring William Hurt, Saoirse Ronan and Diane Kruger.

In between acting gigs, Boyd continues to write. He has two new screenplays that he is pitching at the Sundance Screenwriters Lab after recently participating in The Sundance Directors Lab.
