Matt Dillon Career


When Jane Bernstein and a companion discovered Dillon cutting class at Hommocks Middle School in Larchmont in 1978, they were assisting director Jonathan Kaplan. Dillon auditioned for a role and made his debut in the film. In May 1979, the film received a regional, limited theatrical release, but it only raised less than $200,000. Dillon's appearance was well-received, leading to his roles in two films released the following year: the teenage sex comedy Little Darlings, in which Kristy McNichol's character loses her virginity to a boy from the lake's camp, played by Dillon, and the more serious teen drama My Bodyguard, where he appeared as a high-school bully opposite Chris Makepeace. Both films, which were released in March and July 1980, respectively, were box office hits and also raised Dillon's profile among teen audiences.

In the Jean Shepherd PBS special The Great American Fourth of July and Other Disasters, Dillon was another of his youth roles. The only legitimate copies of this film are stored at UCLA, where it is unobtainable to the public due to a court controversy.

One of his next appearances was in Liar's Moon, where he played Jack Duncan, a poor Texas boy ferociently in love with a wealthy banker's daughter. Dillon appeared in three S. E. Hinton novels in the 1980s: Tex (1982), The Outsiders (1983) and Rumble Fish (1983). Both three films were shot in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Hinton's hometown.

In 1985, he made his Broadway debut with the play The Boys of Winter. In the 1987 documentary film Dear America: Letters Home from Vietnam, Dillon did voiceover work. In 1985, Dillon was referenced in the lyrics of Roger Daltrey's 'After The Fire', written by Pete Townshend. In 1989, Dillon received acclaim for his work as a heroin user in Gus Van Sant's Drugstore Cowboy.

Dillon appeared in films like Singles (1992) in the early 1990s. He had a revival in To Die For (1995), as well as starring roles in Wild Things (1998) and There's Something About Mary (1998), for which he received an MTV Movie Award for Best Villain.

In 2002, he wrote and directed the film City of Ghosts, starring himself, James Caan, and Gérard Depardieu. He appeared in Factotum, a film adaptation of Charles Bukowski's autobiographical work. He received critical esteem and was given Best Supporting Actor Golden Globe and Academy Award nominations for his role in Crash, a film co-written and directed by Paul Haggis two years ago. Dillon appeared in Disney's Herbie: Fully Loaded in 2005, and on Saturday Night Live, in which he impersonated Greg Anderson and Rod Serling in sketches, he impersonated Greg Anderson and Rod Serling in sketches.

In an audiobook version of Jack Kerouac's novel On the Road, Dillon appeared as the narrator, Sal Paradise. In 2006, he narrated Once in a Lifetime: The Extraordinary Life of the New York Cosmos.

During his career, Dillon appeared in several music videos. In Madonna's Bad Girl music video, which also stars Christopher Walken, he made a cameo appearance as a detective. In 1987, Dillon appeared in the Irish folk-punk band "Fairytale of New York," portraying a cop who escorts lead singer Shane MacGowan into the "drunk tank." Dinosaur Jr. hired Dillon to produce the video for their single "Been There All The Time" from the album Beyond. He appeared on The Simpsons' episode "Midnight Towboy" earlier this year. He appeared as a Secret Service agent in the FOX 10-episode series Wayward Pines early in 2015.
