Personal life

Dillon was born in Mamaroneck, New York, the son of Mary Ellen, a homemaker, and Paul Dillon, a portrait painter and investment manager. He is the younger brother of actor Matt Dillon.[1]

On April 21, 2006, Dillon married model-actress Jane Stuart in Las Vegas. Entourage cast member Jerry Ferrara was the best man at the wedding and Kevin Connolly walked Stuart down the aisle after Dillon shouted 'Victory!', a tribute to his character's work on the metafictional TV series Viking Quest. In May 2006, Jane gave birth to a daughter, Ava, in Los Angeles. He also has a daughter named Amy who lives in New York, who is around 16 years old, from a previous relationship.

Career

Dillon began acting in both television and films in the 1980s and first received wide attention for his role as the psychopathic soldier Bunny in the 1986 film Platoon. In 1988, he portrayed Brian Flagg in a remake of the 1958 American science fiction film The Blob. The remake flopped, earning only $8.2 million against a budget of $9 million. Other notable film roles from that period included War Party (1988), No Escape (1994), and The Doors (1991), in which he played drummer John Densmore.

Much of Dillon's 2000s work has been in television, including the CBS series That's Life as Paul DeLucca and the Fox series 24 as Lonnie McRae. He appeared in the 2006 film Poseidon, a remake of the The Poseidon Adventure.
