Elias Koteas stars in "Combat Hospital" on ABC as Colonel Marks, a career military officer and commander of a multinational medical unit in Afghanistan.

On the big screen, Koteas stars in Jim Sheridan's thriller "Dream House," opposite Daniel Craig, Naomi Watts and Rachel Weisz. Koteas next stars in "Winnie," in which he plays a South African apartheid supporter, opposite Jennifer Hudson and Terrence Howard as Winnie and Nelson Mandela, and "Harold and Kumar 3."

Early in his career, director Francis Ford Coppola cast Elias Koteas in both "Gardens of Stone" and "Tucker." Koteas then landed a role in Peter Masterson's "Full Moon in Blue Water" and was later chosen for the lead role in Roger Cardinal's explosive "Malarek," playing true-life investigative journalist Victor Malarek. His haunting performance earned Koteas the first of two Genie nominations (Canada's Oscar) for Best Actor.

Koteas broke out as an international sensation after his starring role in "Crash," which was awarded a special prize at the 1996 Cannes Film festival. He has worked on several occasions with Atom Egoyan, starring in "The Adjuster" and "Exotica," for which Koteas garnered a Genie nomination for Best Supporting Actor, and "Ararat," for which he won the Genie for Best Supporting Actor.

Koteas has portrayed notable roles in many films, including: Steven Shainberg's modern noir "Hit Me"; "Gattaca," with Uma Thurman, Ethan Hawke and Jude Law; Gregory Hoblit's thriller, "Fallen," opposite Denzel Washington; Bryan Singer's "Apt Pupil"; "Living Out Loud," with Holly Hunter and Danny DeVito; Terrence Malick's Academy Award-nominated "The Thin Red Line"; "Novocaine," with Steve Martin and Helena Bonham-Carter; "Harrison's Flowers," alongside Andie MacDowell and Adrien Brody; David Fincher-directed "Zodiac," with Jake Gyllenhaal and Mark Ruffalo; "Shooter," with Mark Wahlberg, directed by Antoine Fuqua; David Fincher's "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett; "Haunting in Connecticut," alongside Virginia Madsen; "Two Lovers," opposite Joaquin Phoenix and Gwyneth Paltrow; Martin Scorsese's "Shutter Island"; "Defendor," with Woody Harrelson and Kat Dennings; Michel Winterbottom's "Killer Inside Me"; "Let Me In," a remake of the award-winning and critically acclaimed Swedish film, "Let the Right One In"; and "3 Backyards," with Edie Falco and Embeth Davidtz.

On television Koteas has had several critically hailed performances in such programs as USA Network's Emmy-nominated "Traffic: The Mini-Series"; the HBO original movie "Shot in the Heart," in which he played notorious murderer Gary Gilmore; opposite John Turturro and Mary-Louise Parker in HBO's "Sugartime"; and "House," where he was Hugh Laurie's nemesis.

On stage he starred in Paula Vogel's "Hot N' Throbbing" at the Signature Theatre, "Kiss of the Spider Woman" at the Yale Repertory Theatre and "True West" on Broadway, directed by Matthew Warchus. A graduate of the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, Koteas is a member of the prestigious Actors' Studio.
