Garret Dillahunt

Garret Dillahunt Headshot

Actor

Birth Date: November 24, 1964

Age: 59 years old

Birth Place: Castro Valley, California

Spouses: Michelle Hurd

In the 2000s, Garret Dillahunt established himself as a talent to be reckoned with, even in supporting roles, wowing viewers and peers alike in two wholly different, unrelated roles on the groundbreaking HBO series "Deadwood" (2004-06), and going on to build an eclectic résumé by working with some of the top producers and directors in premium television and indie films. A graduate of New York University's prestigious theater school, Dillahunt paid his dues in the proverbial trenches of the acting world, including live theater, soaps, some recurring roles on forgettable sitcoms and the odd indie film, before delivering a breakthrough performance on the Showtime series, "Leap Years" (2001-02). Producer David Milch would give Dillahunt's talents their biggest showcase then to date on "Deadwood," where the actor played two successive characters, both scurrilous scoundrels yet both so distinct that even diehard viewers failed to notice it was the same actor. He went on to stand out in turns as a Terminator in "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" (Fox, 2008-09) and a violent sociopath in the 2009 feature remake of "Last House On the Left," becoming a specialist in ultra-creepy villains. Still, he would defy typecasting, winning critical praise as a dryly funny pool-cleaning dad on the quirky Fox comedy series "Raising Hope" (2010-14) and winning indie film leads in John Sayles' feature "Amigo" (2010) and the dark suspense thriller "Oliver Sherman" (2010). With each new outing, Dillahunt built up a sterling reputation as one of the most flexible character actors in Hollywood.
