Jonny Lee Miller

British actor Jonny Lee Miller plays the title role in Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim's ABC legal drama Eli Stone, which chronicles a lawyer who learns he may be a prophet. Having worked with some of the most renowned contemporary filmmakers, Miller had previously collaborated with John Wells on his acclaimed yet short-lived CBS drama, Smith.

In terms of film, Miller most recently played the lead role in The Flying Scotsman, which opened the Edinburgh Film Festival and garnered him a Best Actor nomination from the Scottish BAFTAs in the process. The film recounts the true story of an unemployed amateur cyclist (Miller) who broke the world record on a bike he made of scrap metal. Though he first caught the attention of U.S. audiences opposite Angelina Jolie in Hackers, it was Miller's star turn with Ewan McGregor in another Scotland-based film, Trainspotting for director Danny Boyle, that has paved the way to an impressive list of credits.

Miller has also co-starred with Charlize Theron in Aeon Flux, with Will Ferrell in Woody Allen's Melinda and Melinda, and in the thriller Mindhunters for director Renny Harlin. Additional film credits include the role of Jeffrey Byron in Alan Rudolph's Afterglow, Lord Byron himself in Byron with Vanessa Redgrave, Love, Honour and Obey with Jude Law, Jane Austen's Mansfield Park, and Plunkett & Maclean, which reunited him with Robert Carlyle of Trainspotting. He recently completed work on Endgame directed by Pete Travis and stars opposite William Hurt and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

Miller honed his talents on stage in such productions as Feston, The Play What I Wrote, Democracy, Four Knights in Knaresborough, Beautiful Thing, and more recently in the revival of Frank McGuinness' Someone Who'll Watch Over Me in London's West End.
