Sean Patrick Flanery (born October 11, 1965) is an American actor, known for his portrayals of Connor MacManus in The Boondock Saints, Greg Stillson in The Dead Zone, and Indiana Jones in The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles.

He played Bobby Dagen in Saw 3D.

Early Life

Sean Patrick Flanery was born in Lake Charles, Louisiana, and was raised in Houston, Texas. His mother, Genie, is a real estate broker, while his father, Paul Flanery, is a medical equipment salesman. His ancestry includes Irish, Cajun, and English. After attending Awty International School, Flanery graduated from Dulles High School in Sugar Land and attended the University of St. Thomas in Houston.


Flanery started acting in college after he joined an acting class to meet a girl on whom he had a crush. He later moved to Los Angeles, California, to pursue his acting career. Since 1988, he has appeared in numerous films, including Powder, Simply Irresistible, and D-Tox. He is best known, however, for playing Connor MacManus in The Boondock Saints and Indiana Jones in The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles. He had a brief role as the ascended being, Orlin, in the Stargate SG-1 episode Ascension.

Furthermore, he appeared on the TV show The Dead Zone in the role of Vice President Greg Stillson until its cancellation. Flanery also appeared in an installment of Showtime's Masters of Horror, playing a town sheriff who later became one of the antagonistic entity's possessed hosts in the episode The Damned Thing. In March 2010, he was cast in the lead roles in both the sci-fi horror film Mongolian Death Worm and the seventh installment in the Saw franchise, Saw 3D. Flanery also appeared in The Black Keys' music video Howlin' For You, which was released on February 10, 2011. In April 2011, Flanery headed to the CBS soap The Young and the Restless, playing the role of Sam, Sharon Newman's boyfriend from New Mexico.

Personal Life

He is married to Playboy model and actress Lauren Michelle Hill and has two sons as well as a daughter from a previous relationship.

Flanery won the 1997 Toyota Pro-Celebrity Race at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach as the celebrity driver. The "Alfonso Ribeiro rule" forced him to "defend" his title as a professional driver under TGPLB rules, and he won the 1998 race as a professional driver. Flanery also holds a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, which he also teaches on his own.
