Matt Dillon

Biography: Matt Dillon got his start in a string of rebellious adolescent flicks (Over the Edge, Tex, Rumble Fish) that turned him into a teen idol, a sort of 1980s James Dean. But by the decade's end, he set out to reinvent himself with more adult roles, starting with his portrayal of a junkie in 1989's Drugstore Cowboy. His work in the 1990s proved he was a capable character actor as he tackled a variety of big-screen supporting roles, including hilarious turns as a dimwit Hollywood star in In & Out and an unscrupulous private eye with unforgettable teeth in There's Something About Mary. Despite his busy acting schedule, he tried his hand behind the camera as the writer-director-star of 2002's City of Ghosts. In 2005, after a quarter century of steady work, Dillon earned the respect of his peers as well as Oscar and Golden Globe nods for his performance as a racist cop in Crash. Off screen, Dillon is a board member of Refugees International and supporter of the humanitarian organizationMatt Dillon got his start in a string of rebellious adolescent flicks (Over the Edge, Tex, Rumble Fish) that turned him into a teen idol, a sort of 1980s James Dean.
