Unlike some actors who would rather stick to the film genre they master at, Dermot Mulroney has taken an eclectic career path which contains diverse characters he brilliantly portrayed, certainly making him an exceptional thespian of his generation. An American of predominantly Irish descent, Dermot grew up in Alexandria, Virginia along with his four siblings from the day he was born on October 31, 1963. Already developed a fondness for acting at such a young age, he afterwards joined children's community theater which was later followed by a stage performance in "Are Teachers Human" when he was still a student of George Washington Junior High. Right after his graduation from T.C. Williams High School in 1981, he headed for Chicago, Illinois to enroll in Northwestern University where he later obtained a BFA degree by 1985.
