Hatosy grew up in Mamaroneck, New York and his father is a fireman and his mother a teacher.
Shawn Hatosy started at age eight doing commercials for companies like IBM and JVC. Hatosy even starred on Broadway for “Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor DreamCoat.”
Before making it big, he was broke during the early days of Southland, which made him move out to LA with only thirty dollars in his pocket!
At twenty-five years old, Hatosy had no idea that this show would be life-changing. However, fate had it otherwise when John Wells called upon him after seeing one of his first movies, Johnny Skidmarks (1999). After auditioning several times over the next month, he was cast as Officer John Cooper.
