Actor Jonny Lee Miller has found success playing the lead role in the new hit drama Eli Stone. Perhaps this acclaim is long overdue following a series of roles since the late 1980s that have included supporting parts in cult classics such as Trainspotting and Hackers. In addition to his acting and his partnership in a production company with Ewan McGregor and Jude Law, Miller is an ex-husband of Angelina Jolie. Of course, Miller has family roots in showbiz--his grandfather Bernard Lee played “M” in the early James Bond movies. To see our posting on Jonny Lee Miller, click here.
