Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

One of the busiest character actors of the late 1990s and 2000s, Dylan Baker was the go-to talent for men of authority whose professional veneer often covered a fundamental flaw in such films as "Happiness" (1998), "The Cell" (2000), "Road to Perdition" (2002) and "Spider-Man 2" (2004). A veteran of the New York stage, he began appearing in features and on television in the late 1980s, eventually graduating to small, showy parts in "The Long Walk Home" (1990) and the legal series "Murder One" (ABC, 1995-97). Todd Solondz's disturbing family drama launched him into mainstream attention as a pedophilic psychiatrist; Hollywood soon beckoned in the form of roles in "The Road to Perdition" (2002), Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man 2" and "3" (2007), and an Emmy nod for "The Good Wife" (NBC, 2009- ). His keenly personable yet intense performances made him a favorite with indie and mainstream audiences alike.
