Actor Matt Dillon, who began his film career as a teen star and has starred in the Los Angeles crime drama "Crash" earlier this year, will be handed a Gotham Award at the 15th annual Gotham Awards held on November 30. Gotham Awards, which celebrate independent and New York-set films, also will present six jury-decided awards, including Movie of the Year.
"We've all watched Matt grow up on camera, but I don't know how many of us have really stopped and taken a long look at the tremendously accomplished body of work that he continues to build," Michelle Byrd, executive director of the Independent Feature Project, which awards the Gothams, said. In related news, Dillon's new film "Factotum" will be released early next year.
