Shawn Wayne Hatosy (born December 29, 1975) is an American actor with over 45 film and television credits to his name.
Early life and education 
Hatosy was born in Frederick, Maryland, the son of Carol (née Owens), a loan officer, and Wayne Hatosy. Shawn is of Hungarian ancestry from his father. He grew up in the Loch Haven neighborhood of Ijamsville, Maryland, attended New Market Middle School, and graduated from Linganore High School. Larry James, who still resides in Frederick, MD, was his high school basketball coach. Larry says that "he was a star in his own right" on and off the court. Hatosy took his middle name, Wayne, from his father. He has an older sister, and is married with a son. Hatosy also has a daughter from a previous relationship. Hatosy currently resides in Los Angeles.
Hatosy's two most recent films are Public Enemies (2009), starring Johnny Depp and Christian Bale, and Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans (2009), in which Hatosy portrays Nicolas Cage's partner, Armand Benoit.
Hatosy has appeared in past films such as Soldier's Girl, The Faculty, In & Out, The Cooler, Outside Providence, John Q, and 2007's Alpha Dog. Hatosy auditioned for a leading role in the 1999 film Varsity Blues but lost it to James Van Der Beek.
Hatosy has appeared in such television shows as CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, The Twilight Zone, Felicity, Six Feet Under, ER, Law & Order, Numb3rs, My Name is Earl and Hawaii Five-0. As of April 2009[update], Hatosy appears as Detective Sammy Bryant in the NBC/TNT television series Southland. His latest successful roles were that of serial killer named Boyd Fowler on the Showtime television series Dexter.
In 2005, he performed opposite Al Pacino in Lyle Kessler's Orphans at the Greenway Court Theatre in Los Angeles. Hatosy also took on the title role in the La Jolla Playhouse production of The Collected Works of Billy the Kid. Off-Broadway, he starred opposite Anna Paquin in the Paul Weitz comedy Roulette. He also performed in Roulette, an Ensemble Studio Theater production directed by Trip Cullman. The characters include a dizzy, distant dad (Larry Bryggman), a sweet, adulterous, alcoholic mom (Leslie Lyles), a steroid-hyped son (Shawn Hatosy), and a wise-cracking, substance-abusing teenage daughter (the Oscar-winning actress Anna Paquin).
On March 22, 2011, TNT announced it has renewed Southland for a fourth season. The show stars Hatosy, Michael Cudlitz, Ben McKenzie, and Regina King, and has been averaging 2.9 million viewers during its recently wrapped third season, which featured the death of a major character. Southland star Ben McKenzie (Ben Sherman) claims that his character's new partnership with Sammy (Shawn Hatosy) will be "explosive". The new season of Southland commenced filming in October 2011.
