Biography


Successfully made great transition from teen idol to fine adult thespian to keep shining for over 2 decades of his career, Matt Dillon indeed has scored a rare accomplishment many other actors of his generation can hardly match. Hailed from a tight-knit middle class Irish-American Catholic family, he was born Matthew Raymond Dillon on February 18, 1964 in New Rochelle, New York as the second son of Mary Ellen and Paul Dillon, a former Union Camp's sales manager turned portrait painter. Growing up in the neighborhood town of Mamaroneck, the star actually started his foray in professional acting by pure chance during his years at Larchmont's Hommocks School when he bumped into talent scouts sent by casting director Vic Ramos after cutting his math class. Barely 14 years old at that time, the teen wonderfully managed to leave such deep impression upon being called for an interview that Ramos without any hesitation then willingly gave him the third billing in Jonathan Kaplan's "Over the Edge" (1979).
