Combining acting with a distinguished career as a singer songwriter, Hugh Dillon earned notoriety as the lead singer in the multi-platinum punk rock band, the Headstones. It was early on in the band‚Äôs success when Hugh caught the attention of legendary filmmaker Bruce McDonald (Highway 61, Roadkill). Bruce cast Hugh in Dance Me Outside in 1994. Next came his critically acclaimed lead performance as Joe Dick, in McDonald’s 1996 feature film, Hard Core Logo. Quentin Tarantino saw it at the South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin, TX and decided on the spot to distribute the movie through his company Rolling Thunder, bringing international attention to the indie classic and its lead actor.

In 2004, Debra Granik (Winter’s Bone) cast Hugh to star opposite Vera Farmiga (The Departed, Up in the Air) in the Sundance Film Festival award-winning movie, Down To The Bone.

Hugh’s ability to capture honest and realistic portrayals of complicated characters has been his calling card. In 2007, the Gemini winning actor scored the lead role as Mike Sweeney in the dark and twisted serial Durham County (The Movie Network), which lead to his breakout role as Ed Lane in CBS and CTV‚Äôs Flashpoint, which aired its fifth season in late 2012.

In early 2013, Dillon joined the cast of AMC’s The Killing, as Francis Becker, going head to head with Peter Sarsgaard. The hit series’ third season is set to begin airing early June. He is simultaneously portraying a mysterious CEO on the second season of Showcase’s sensational sci-fi police drama Continuum (Syfy US and UK).

Following a celebrated return to the stage with the Headstones, 2012 saw Dillon back in the studio, recording their latest album Love + Fury. Released on FrostByte Media/Universal Music May 2013, their single longwaytoneverland skyrocketed to #1 on Active Rock Radio. The album debuted at #7 in its first week, the band’s first Top 10 release.
