Biography

Garret Dillahunt is a veteran actor who has a seasoned resume that includes a little bit of everything. Not bad for a guy who never thought he would even be an actor.

Dillahunt was born in Castro Valley, California and grew up in Washington State. He attended the University of Washington where he studied journalism because he had been into the school newspaper in high school and worked for the Selah Valley Optimist in his tiny hometown; in his last year he took an acting class, which was part of the requirement for the playwrights, and that changed everything. He later went on to study at New York University's graduate acting program.

After spending years on and off Broadway, Dillahunt began pursuing television and film roles. He appeared as a regular in several short lived series and landed guest spots on popular TV shows such as The X Files and NYPD Blue among others, before playing two distinct characters on the series Deadwood; Jack McCall in 2004 and Francis Wolcott in 2005. Next he went to play a recurring role on the series The 4400.

Dillahunt portrayed Steve Curtis on several episodes of ER. He followed that up with the role of Dr. Michael Smith in the 2007 drama John From Cincinnati. He played John Henry/Cromartie on Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and a Russian mobster named Roman Nevikov on Life. Film roles include Ed Miller in The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and Wendell in No Country for Old Men, for which he won an SAG Award for Best Ensemble Cast on a Motion Picture. His 2009 film roles included Cormac McCarthy's The Road and Wes Craven's The Last House On The Left.

In 2009 Garret squared off with Rosie Perez on an explosive episode of Law & Order: SVU about pedophiles' rights; Garret played the head of a pedophilia organization, and guest starred in the Burn Notice third season finale. He could also be seen as Mason Turner, a paralyzed serial killer, on the show Criminal Minds.

Criminal Minds

He portrayed Mason Turner, a paralyzed man who manipulated his intellectually challenged brother into the abduction and murder of countless homeless people to help with his experiments to reach a cure for his illness in the two-part Season Four finale.

Notes

  • He was originally cast as Charley Ford in 2007's Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, but had to take a smaller role due to a television conflict.
  • He said about himself: I'm kind of a bookworm at heart, so projects like No Country for Old Men or Assassination of Jesse James By the Coward Robert Ford are things that I could do my whole life and look back on and be proud of.
  • He is one of the five guest stars that are connected to the Terminator franchise, the other four being Patrick Kilpatrick, Will Rothhaar, Michael Biehn, and Anton Yelchin.
