Episode Description

Oscar-nominated actor Matt Dillon has never quite seen eye to eye with Hollywood. The media has called him "coy" and "arrogant," while critics have called him a "low-rent James Dean" and industry bigwigs have passed him over for lead roles. Matt himself doesn't care much for the bright lights of Hollywood and LA, preferring to stay closer to his family in NYC. After more than a quarter of a century under the lights, Matt has transformed from rebellious teen idol into indie-extraordinaire, occasionally striking gold with a silver screen hit. He spent much of his early career being typecast as a brooding, unruly teenager. His interesting film choices have led him down a career path that's less commercially successful than his fellow "Brat-Packers," yet he's still relevant, evident most recently by his Oscar nomination for Crash in 2006 and subsequent praise from critics.
