Additional film credits include Bryan Singer's Apt Pupil; Living Out Loud with Holly Hunter and Danny DeVito; and Steven Shainberg's Hit Me, a modern noir adaptation of Jim Thompson's A Swell Looking Babe. Koteas' television credits include a co-starring role opposite John Turturro and Mary-Louise Parker in HBO's Sugartime, and Horton Foote's searing familial drama The Habitation of Dragons.
