Biography

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. [ [http://www.filmreference.com/film/7/Kevin-Dillon.html Kevin Dillon Biography (1965?-) ] ] He is the younger brother of actor Matt Dillon.

On April 22, 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 fictional TV series "Viking Quest". In May 2006, Jane gave birth to a daughter Ava in Los Angeles.

Career

Dillon began acting in both television and films in the 1980s and first received wide attention for his role as the psychotic 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) and "The Doors" (1991).

Much of Dillon's recent work has been in television, including the CBS series "That's Life" and "24 " from FOX as Lonnie McRae. Dillon is currently on the HBO hit comedy series "Entourage" playing Johnny "Drama" Chase, for which he received a 2007 Emmy nomination. He quips that the character is based on a few friends including his brother Paul.
