  • British actor Jared Harris first won recognition for his riveting portrayal of influential American pop artist Andy Warhol in the acclaimed I Shot Andy Warhol (1996). Though he is the son of esteemed British actor Richard Harris, he showed little interest in following his father's path until he was cast in a college production while attending North Carolina's Duke University during the early '80s. Following graduation, he returned to Britain and worked with the Royal Shakespeare Company for several years, before heading back to the states to appear off-Broadway. The actor made his screen debut in The Rachel Papers (1989). Following his appearances as Harvey Keitel's slightly retarded shop assistant in Smoke and its companion piece Blue in the Face (both 1995), Harris became a familiar face in American independent films, though he still made the occasional foray into mainstream films, appearing in Lost in Space in 1998. After portraying a sleazy Russian cab driver in Todd Solondz's acclaimed Happiness (1998), Harris could be seen in Michael Radford's B. Monkey, starring opposite Asia Argento, Rupert Everett, and Jonathan Rhys Myers. He went on to appear in Perfume and Igby Goes Down in the next few years. In 2003 he found himself playing one of Europe's most famous historical figures when he tackled the role of King Henry VIII in The Other Boleyn Girl. The next year he had small parts in The Day After Tomorrow and Ocean's Twelve. Although he was in the notorious flop Lady in the Water in 2006, two years later he appeared in the multiple Oscar nominated The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. In 2009 he had his most high-profile success joining the cast of the award-winning drama Mad Men as a British businessman. He was the bad guy in the second of Robert Downey Jr's Sherlock Holmes films, and played one of the important figures in American history when Steven Spielberg cast him in Lincoln as General Ulysses S. Grant.

QUOTES FROM Jared Harris CHARACTERS

Professor James Moriarty
Your clock is ticking.

Well, after this meeting, I'm going down to my limo and head across to my 16-floor mansion to touch my girlfriend's big fake pompoms!

Babe Bennett
I'm calling him around 4. It's when I get off work. Remember, I am Pam Dawson, virgin school nurse from Winchestertonfieldville, Iowa.
Mac McGrath
Ha ha, that's priceless... YOU a VIRGIN! Ha ha ha!
Mac McGrath
Ha ha, that's priceless.You a virgin! Ha ha ha!
Dr. Charles Ashford
You do what you want, I'm staying!
Professor James Moriarty
Let's not waste anymore of one another's time. We both know how this ends.
Professor James Moriarty
The laws of celestial mechanics dictate that when two objects collide, there is always damage, of a collateral nature.
Professor James Moriarty
Now, are you sure you want to play this game?
Sherlock Holmes
I'm afraid, you would lose.
Professor James Moriarty
[speaking to Holmes] In answer to your previous request regarding Dr. Watson *not* being involved, the answer is no. The laws of celestial mechanics dictate that when two objects collide, there's always damage on a collateral nature.
Professor James Moriarty
Don't you find it strange that the telegram you sent didn't inspire any action to stope me? You see hidden within the unconscious lies an insatiable desire for conflict. So you're not fighting me, at all, as much as you're fighting the human condition. War in an industrial scale is inevitable; they'll do it themselves within a few years. All I want to do is to own the bullets and the bandages.
Professor James Moriarty
I no longer require your services.
Michael
Heidi, take a good look at this face couse you will never ever see it again
Michael
Heidi, take a good look at this face couse you will never ever see it again.
Sherlock Holmes
[Predicting fight with Moriarty] His advantage: my injury. My advantage: his rage. Assault: feral, but experienced. Use momentum against him-- [pause]
Professor James Moriarty
[voice-over] Come now. Do you really think you're the only one who can play this game?
Professor James Moriarty
You are familiar with Schubert's work? The Trout is my favorite piece. A fisherman grows weary of trying to catch an elusive fish. So he muddies the water, confuses the fish. It does not realize until too late that it has swum into a trap.
Sherlock Holmes
[stabbed with hook in right shoulder, lifted into the air, screaming in pain]
Professor James Moriarty
[sings enthusiastically in German along to 'Die Forelle' by Schubert]
Sherlock Holmes
[playing chess with Moriarty] We both have two bishops. My presence may be absent from the room, but my methods are not.
Professor James Moriarty
You can't mean Dr. Watson, surely? [grimaces] That doesn't seem fair.
Professor James Moriarty
Are you sure you want to play this game?
Sherlock Holmes
I'm afraid you'd lose.
Professor James Moriarty
Rest assured, if you attempt to bring ruin down upon me, I will do the same to you in turn. My respect for you, Mr. Holmes, is the only reason you're still alive.
Sherlock Holmes
You've paid me several compliments. Let me pay you one in return. If I could in anyway be assured of the former eventuality, I would cheerfully accept the latter.
Professor James Moriarty
Didn't you find it strange that your telegram drew no action against me? You see, buried within the unconscious lies an insatiable urge for conflict. I just want to own the bullets and the bandages. War on an industrial scale is inevitable. They'll do it themselves within a few years. All I have to do is wait.
Sherlock Holmes
[stares]
Professor James Moriarty
I like Switzerland. They respect a man's privacy here. Particularly if he has a fortune.
Professor James Moriarty
Your clock is ticking.
Professor James Moriarty
Do you have the letter?
Irene Adler
It was taken.
Professor James Moriarty
Taken?
Irene Adler
During the chaos created by your package. [waiter pours out tea for her] Thank you! [to Moriarty] Perhaps... if you had shared your plans...
Professor James Moriarty
You wish to know my plans, now, do you? Did you imagine, Miss Adler, that something would happen to you? Is that why you chose to meet here in a public place, your favourite restaurant?
Col. Sebastian Moran
[taps a spoon against his glass three times and every one inside the restaurant leaves including the waiters, until only Moran, Moriarty and Irene remain]
Professor James Moriarty
I don’t blame you. I blame myself. It’s been apparent to me for quite some time than you had succumbed to your feelings for him. And this isn’t the first occasion Mr Holmes has inconvenienced me in recent months... The question is... what to do about it?

Now...are you sure you want to play this game?
Professor James Moriarty
Now... are you sure you want to play this game?
Sherlock Holmes
The game is still young.
Professor Moriarty
Actually, it's in it's adolescence.
Professor Moriarty
You won't be needing your ticket.
Col. Sebastian Moran
(In an uncomforting tone) Shame. I was looking forward to seeing Don Giovanni.
Col. Sebastian Moran
[in an uncomforting tone] Shame. I was looking forward to seeing Don Giovanni.
Professor Moriarty
Who did you send that telegram to? (silence) (Moriarty jabs the hook further into Holmes' shoulder and he cries out in pain. Moriarty leans into him to hear him)
Professor Moriarty
Who did you send that telegram to? [silence] [Moriarty jabs the hook further into Holmes' shoulder and he cries out in pain. Moriarty leans into him to hear him]
Sherlock Holmes
(weakly, barely audible) My brother, Mycroft.
Sherlock Holmes
[weakly, barely audible] My brother, Mycroft.

And the second question I might ask is, who is the fish and who is the fisherman?
