Character: Thomas Montgomery
Born in California and raised in Washington, Garret Dillahunt studied journalism at the University of Washington and went on to earn his M.F.A. through New York University’s renowned graduate acting program.
Dillahunt is currently starring on the hit Fox series "Raising Hope" but makes time during his hiatus to film features, such as "Any Day Now" starring opposite Alan Cumming and directed by Travis Fine; "Cogan’s Trade," starring Brad Pitt and directed by Andrew Dominic; "Looper" with Emily Blunt, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis; "Revenge For Jolly!" with Kristen Wiig, Oscar Isaacs, Ryan Philippe, Elijah Wood and Adam Brody; and most recently the independent film "Headhunter" starring opposite Ulrich Tukur ("The White Ribbon") and directed by Bastian Gunther. Both "Any Day Now" and "Revenge for Jolly!" will be premiering in the Tribeca Film Festival 2012.
Last year he starred in, and received a Genie nomination as the title character in, "Oliver Sherman," Ryan Redford’s directorial debut, opposite Molly Parker and Donal Logue. He also starred in the independent feature "Amigo," with Chris Cooper and directed by John Sayles. Additionally, he co-starred in the critically acclaimed "Winter’s Bone," which earned him and the rest of the cast Best Ensemble at the Gotham Awards.
Dillahunt is probably best known for his work on the critically acclaimed cable series "Deadwood," in which he portrayed two entirely different characters: the assassin Jack McCall and the complex and deadly Francis Wolcott. After recognizing Dillahunt's talent in his first incarnation, executive producer/writer David Milch created a second character for him.
Additional television credits include "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles," "John From Cincinnati," "The Book of Daniel," "ER," "The 4400," "Damages," "Life," "Lie to Me," "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," "Criminal Minds," "Burn Notice" and "White Collar," and most recently "Alphas and Memphis Beat."
He boasts an outstanding theatrical resume and has performed extensively on and off Broadway and at such respected theater companies as Steppenwolf, ACT San Francisco, the Seattle Repertory Theatre, Huntington Theatre Company, Williamstown Theatre Festival and the Berkshire Theatre Festival.
Dillahunt resides in Los Angeles and New York
