MICHAEL VARTAN currently stars opposite Jennifer
Garner in the hit action TV series, "Alias, "which received a
Golden Globe nomination in 2002 for Best
Television Series - Drama
and won a People's Choice Award for Favorite Television New Dramatic Series.
Vartan starred as Sam Coulson, the schoolteacher that Drew Barrymore's character
fell in love with in Twentieth Century Fox's romantic comedy, NEVER BEEN
KISSED, and as the ex-boyfriend of Madonna's character in John Schlesinger's
THE NEXT BEST THING.
In 2001, he played Sir Lancelot in the two-part TNT mini-series, "The
Mists of Avalon," which retold the legendary story of Camelot. The project,
tilmed on location in Prague, also stars Anjelica Huston, Julianna
Margulies and Joan Allen. His TV work also includes a
guest-starring role on Fox's "Ally McBeal," for which he played a
potential suitor to Ally.
After starring in two French films, Vartan grabbed the attention of the film
world with his breakthrough performance in the 1993 Italian epic,
FIORILE, directed by Paolo and Vittorio Taviani. Vartan, who was nominated for a
French Caesar Award for Best Up-and-Coming Actor, played two characters in this
fable of a curse that haunts a family through centuries.
Soon after, Vartan landed a role in TO WONG FOO, THANKS FOR EVERYTHING,
JULIE NEWMAR, for which he played the bigoted, small-town thug who
harasses three drag queens (Wesley Snipes, Patrick Swayze and John Leguizamo).
He went on to star opposite David Schwimmer as one of his best friends in THE
PALLBEARER. He also starred in THE MYTLI OF FINGERPRINTS, with Julianne Moore,
and THE CURVE, with Keri Russell, both of which premiered at The Sundance Film
Festival in 1997 and 1998 respectively.
