(Director) has assembled an impressive list of directorial credits
in both film and television, most notably with his hit feature
comedy Happy Gilmore.
In addition to directing Happy Gilmore, Dugan co-starred
opposite Adam Sandler in the film, which was both a box office
success and a video phenomenon grossing a collective $75 million.
He went on to direct the late Chris Farley in the comedy Beverly
Hills Ninja, which opened at No. 1 less than a year after
Happy Gilmore. These two releases distinguished Dugan as
the only director ever to have two films open in less than 11
months, one at No. 2 and the other at No. 1. His other feature
film credits include Problem Child and Brain Donors.
Dugan has directed dozens of television projects including episodes
of the critically acclaimed primetime dramas "Ally McBeal,"
"Chicago Hope" and "NYPD Blue."
He began his career as an actor, with credits including the feature
films Day of the Locusts, The Howling, Norman, Is That You?
and Parenthood. His television credits include the
most watched miniseries of its time, "Rich Man, Poor Man,"
in which he portrayed Nick Nolte's best friend; "Moonlighting,"
"Hill Street Blues," "Hooperman," "St.
Elsewhere," "M*A*S*H," "Columbo" and
his own series, "Ritchie Brockelman, Private Eye."
