With a charm and wit that was uniquely British, Jonny Lee Miller brought a passion and dedication to acting that earned him a lasting, though mostly under-the-radar career from stage to screen. Whether portraying heroin addict Sick Boy in Danny Boyle's critically acclaimed "Trainspotting" (1996) or a record-breaking cyclist in "The Flying Scotsman" (2006), Miller's varied performances earned him much notice in Britain. In America, he first became known as Angelina Jolie's first ex-husband, but that all changed in 2008 when he stormed primetime American television as a prophetic lawyer who has strange visions on "Eli Stone" (ABC, 2008-09). Though the show only lasted two seasons, it was enough to put the British actor on the map stateside. From there, he played the villain on the fifth season of "Dexter" (Showtime, 2006-13), was a shiftless ne'er-do-well in "Dark Shadows" (2012) and was the star of the praised revamp of the Sherlock Holmes tale "Elementary" (CBS, 2012- ). Having finally elevated his status in the States, Miller established himself as a major leading player primed for true stardom.
