Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Dwier Brown is a stage and screen actor. He is probably best known for his early screen work in the realist fantasy movie "Field of Dreams," memorably playing Kevin Costnerâ¿¿s father, who mysteriously materializes after a baseball field is built in the middle of Iowa farmland. In the late 1980s, he also appeared in the cult comedy horror movie "House" and its sequel, "House II: The Second Story," as well as landing a small part in the William Friedkin neo-noir, "To Live and Die in L.A.," as a doctor. He reteamed with Friedkin a few years later in 1990 to play the male lead in the horror movie "The Guardian," a man who hires a nanny to take care of his baby not realizing she intends to sacrifice the child to a Druidic tree god. He has also appeared in the movies "Red Dragon," "Gettysburg," and "The Cutting Edge," and in several television shows including "Quantum Leap," "ER," "Ally McBeal," and "Firefly." Working frequently on stage, he was in a production of "Angels in America" and created the role of Hermes in Deb Nortonâ¿¿s play "The Whole Banana." He is also a founding member of the Alliance Repertory Company.
