MICHAEL VARTAN (Danny) came to international acclaim with his starring role as 'Agent Michael Vaughn' on the worldwide hit ABC series, "Alias," which ran for five seasons. Vartan currently stars as surgeon Dr. Tom Wakefield opposite Jada Pinkett Smith in TNT's medical drama "HawthoRNe,” which just completed its third season.

Vartan takes a comedic role in the upcoming workplace comedy feature Demoted. He stars as Rodney McAdams, a sales associate for Treadline Tires who is "demoted" to secretary when his boss unexpectedly dies and is replaced by his arch rival (David Cross). J.B. Rogers (American Pie 2) directs from a screenplay by Dan Callahan.

Last fall, Vartan starred in the independent film Jolene: My Life, for director Dan Ireland (The Whole Wide World), based on a story by E.L. Doctorow. Vartan also starred in the Weinstein Company's suspense thriller Rogue, New Line's blockbuster Monster-in-Law, the suspense thriller One Hour Photo, and FOX 2000's Never Been Kissed.

Vartan appeared in the two-part TNT mini-series "The Mists of Avalon," a retelling of the legendary story of Camelot. He portrayed 'Sir Lancelot,' opposite Angelica Huston, Julianna Margulies and Joan Allen.

Born in Paris to a French father and an American mother, Vartan grew up in the tiny Normandy village of Fleury until the age of 16, when he moved to Los Angeles to live with his mother, who encouraged him to take acting classes. After starring in two small 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 was nominated for a French Caesar Award for Best Up-and-Coming Actor for his performance.
