Holt McCallany

Description[from Freebase]

Holt McCallany (born Holt Quinn McAloney; September 3, 1964) is an American actor, writer, and producer working primarily in film and television. He was born in 1964 in New York City to theatrical parents. His mother is Julie Wilson, an American singer and actress, who has long been considered one of the best cabaret performers in the United States. His father, Michael McAloney, was an Irish actor and producer best known for his Tony Award winning production of Brendan Behan’s Borstal Boy, an autobiographical play about a young member of the Irish Republican Army, the first Irish production to win top honors on Broadway. Because his father wanted an Irish education for his two sons, Holt and his younger brother Michael were sent to live with another family in Dublin while his parents stayed in New York City, working. However, following his parents' divorce the children moved back to the United States and Holt attended school in New Jersey. He was later sent to live with his maternal grandparents in Omaha, Nebraska, where he had a troubled childhood and was expelled from the Jesuit Creighton Preparatory School.
