  • Character player Garret Dillahunt appeared onscreen from the late '90s, and -- though versatile -- often displayed a predilection for evocations of slightly rugged types. Early in his career, Dillahunt essayed a string of guest portrayals on series including NYPD Blue and The X-Files, and signed on as a fixture on less successful series outings such as Maximum Bob (1998), Leap Years (2001), and A Minute with Stan Hooper (2003). When these programs folded not long after they first bowed, Dillahunt continued to find work on the small screen, appearing in multiple episodes of such series as ER (2005-2006), The 4400 (2005-2006), John from Cincinnati (2007), and Damages (2007), in such a variety of characterizations that his versatility as an actor was clearly notable. Dillahunt's ability to disappear into a role lead to him portraying not one but two memorable characters on HBO's critically acclaimed Western series Deadwood; his evocation of Wild Bill Hickock murderer Jack McCall so impressed the series' producers that he was brought back the next season to portray George Hearst's emissary Francis Wolcott (who was also secretly a serial killer). The next year, the actor's evocation of Jesus on Jack Kenny, Flody Suarez, and John Tinker's risky comedy drama series The Book of Daniel (2006) brought him lead billing, but the program never caught fire with the public. In 2007, Dillahunt transitioned to features and appeared in at least two A-list theatrical releases: The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and the Coen Brothers' No Country for Old Men. For No Country, Dillahunt and his co-stars picked up a Screen Actors Guild nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture. He appeared in the short-lived HBO surfing series John From Cincinnati, and had a recurring role on Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. In 2009 he starred in the big-screen remake of Last House on the Left, and had a small role in The Road. In 2010 he landed the role of the grandfather of the title character on the FOX sitcom Raising Hope, which turned into a ratings hit. He was one of the stars in the drama Any Day Now as a gay lawyer attempting to adopt a child.

QUOTES FROM Garret Dillahunt CHARACTERS

Wendell
You think this boy Moss has got any notion of the sorts of sons of bitches that're huntin' him?
Sheriff Ed Tom Bell
I don't know, he ought to. He's seen the same things I've seen, and it's certainly made an impression on me.
Wendell
Well, it's a mess..ain't it sherrif?
Wendell
Well, it's a mess... ain't it sherrif?
Sheriff Ed Tom Bell
If it ain't, it'll do till the mess gets here.
Sheriff Ed Tom Bell
That look like a '77 Ford to you Wendell?
Wendell
It could be.
Sheriff Ed Tom Bell
I'd say it is not a doubt in my mind.
Wendell
Well it's a mess ain't it sheriff?
Sheriff Ed Tom Bell
If it ain't it'll do till the mess gets here.
The Gang Member
You ain't gonna shoot that thing. You ain't got but two shells. Maybe one. And they'll hear the shot.
The Man
Maybe. But you won't. Because that bullet will be through your head and in your brain before you can hear it. To hear it, you'll need a frontal lobe, and things with names like "colliculus" and "temporal gyrus". And you won't have 'em anymore, because they'll just be soup.
The Gang Member
You a doctor?
The Man
I'm not anything.
The Man
You think I won't kill you? You're wrong.
The Gang Member
You know what I think? I think you're chicken-shit. You never killed a man in your life.
The Man
You look at him again, I'll shoot you in the head.
The Gang Member
That boy looks hungry. Why don't ya'll come on to the truck? Get you somethin' to eat. Ain't no need to be such a hard-ass.
The Man
You don't have anything to eat.
Wendell
It's a mess, ain't it Sheriff?
Wendell
It's a mess, ain't it, sheriff?
Sheriff Ed Tom Bell
If it ain't it'll do til a mess gets here.
Sheriff Ed Tom Bell
If it ain't, it'll do till the mess gets here.
Justin
Dad, look, I was just trying to liquidate some of the..
Krug
Liquidate. Wow. Is that my word or yours?
Wendell
Aw, hells bells. They even shot the dog!
