Early life

Dillahunt was born in Castro Valley, California and grew up in Washington state. He attended the University of Washington where he studied journalism. He later went on to study at New York University's graduate acting program.[1]

Acting career

After spending years on and off Broadway,[2] Dillahunt began pursuing television and film roles. He appeared as a regular in several short lived series on ABC and Showtime and landed guest spots on popular TV shows such as The X Files and NYPD Blue[3] among others, before playing two distinct characters on the HBO series Deadwood; Jack McCall in 2004 and Francis Wolcott in 2005. He played a recurring role on the USA Network series The 4400.

Dillahunt portrayed Steve Curtis on several episodes of ER (2005, 2006). He followed that up with the role of Dr. Michael Smith in the 2007 HBO drama, John From Cincinnati. He played John Henry/Cromartie on FOX's Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, and a Russian mobster named Roman Nevikov on NBC's Life. He can also be seen as Mason Turner, a paralyzed serial killer, on the CBS show Criminal Minds' season 4 finale.

Film roles include Ed Miller in The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and Wendell in No Country For Old Men. His 2009 film roles included Cormac McCarthy's The Road and Wes Craven's The Last House On The Left.

It was announced on August 20, 2009 that Garret will square off with Rosie Perez on an explosive episode of Law & Order: SVU this fall about pedophiles' rights. Garret will play the head of a pedophilia organization. "It's called 'Hardwired,'" executive producer Neal Baer says, "because they believe that pedophilia is [a genetic predestination]."[4]



Dillahunt was the subject of a short article in the September 2009 issue of Esquire magazine, in which the author admits his man-love for the actor.[5]
