I highly recommend it.
Great film! It also has a great contribution by Hans Zimmer.

I love Koteas! He's one of those "it's that guy!" actors who I love seeing in supporting roles, kinda like Tom Noonan, Charles Dance, and Bruce Dern, to name a few.

One movie that comes to mind is Fallen, where he small, memorable role that set the tone for the rest of the film. The man plays crazy well.

Some actors are terrible or average at their job because they try so hard their acting feels forced. This applies to A-listers who have won Oscars. Koteas seems to breeze through films offering a natural and interesting performance without any effort. He's a true actor.

I watched the original trilogy for the first time in the past few days (well, aside from Turtles in Time, which I had seen first as a kid) and thought Elias Koteas was awesome. Best version of Casey, imo. Havenít seen him in anything else, though.

You've got to check out The Prophesy!
He was great in that.

Bonus Christopher Walken as Gabriel.
And Vigo Mortensen.

Never heard of The Prophesy before but the premise of the film sounds good. Iíll try watching it sometime.

About TV roles, he was the guy that shot House on the last episode of Season 2 of House MD.

I'm sure he did many more roles on TV, but it's one I remember.
