MATT DILLON's (Carl Peterson) successful film career has spanned over two decades and has showcased his wide range of dramatic and comedic talents. From his breakthrough performance in The Outsiders to his hilarious turn as an obsessed private investigator in There's Something About Mary, he has proven himself to be one of the most diverse actors of his generation.

Dillon most recently displayed his versatility with an arresting performance costarring as a racist cop in the critically acclaimed Paul Haggis film Crash. This role earned him nominations for an Academy Award®, a Golden Globe, a Screen Actors Guild Award, a Critics' Choice Award, a BAFTA Award and won him an Independent Spirit Award. In addition, the film earned him a Screen Actors Guild Award and a Critics' Choice Award for Best Ensemble. As The New York Times film critic A.O. Scott put it, "He seems to be getting better with every film.”

Immediately following You, Me and Dupree, he will portray Charles Bukowski's alter ego in Factotum, for which he received glowing reviews when it premiered at this year's Cannes Film Festival.

In 1990, Dillon won an IFP Spirit Award for his gritty performance as a drug addict in Gus Van Sant's Drugstore Cowboy. From there, he went on to star in such films as Ted Demme's Beautiful Girls, opposite Uma Thurman and Natalie Portman; Cameron Crowe's Singles; In & Out, with Kevin Kline; Kevin Spacey's Albino Alligator; Francis Ford Coppola's Rumble Fish; Garry Marshall's The Flamingo Kid; Gus Van Sant's To Die For, with Nicole Kidman; and John McNaughton's Wild Things.

Aside from being an accomplished actor, Dillon recently wrote—and made his feature-film directorial debut with—City of Ghosts, in which he starred with Gérard Depardieu, Stellan Skarsgård and James Caan. The versatile actor made his television directorial debut in 1997 with an episode of HBO's gritty prison drama Oz. Dillon's achievements continue with television appearances in an HBO adaptation of Irwin Shaw's Return to Kansas City and a part co-narrating the documentary Dear America: Letters From Vietnam.

Dillon's multitalents have also landed him on Broadway's stage to star in The Boys of Winter. He also appeared in the PBS/American Playhouse production of The Great American Fourth of July and Other Disasters.
