Combining acting with a distinguished career as a singer songwriter, Hugh Dillon earned notoriety in his multi-platinum punk rock band. It was early in the band’s success when Hugh caught the attention of filmmaker Bruce McDonald, who cast him in the 1996 film Hard Core Logo. Quentin Tarantino saw it at South by Southwest, deciding on the spot to distribute the movie through Rolling Thunder.

This caught the attention of Debra Granik (Winter’s Bone), who cast Dillon to star opposite Vera Farmiga in the Sundance Film Festival award winning film, Down To The Bone.

Dillon’s ability to capture honest and realistic portrayals of complicated characters has been his calling card. The award-winning actor scored the starring role in the dark and twisted serial Durham County, leading him to his breakout role in CBS/CTV co-production Flashpoint, which aired its fifth season in 2012.

Early 2013 saw Dillon join AMC’s The Killing, simultaneously appearing on Showcase’s drama Continuum. In 2014, he was cast in a lead role for CBC’s X Company. Dillon has been busy since then with various productions, including Syfy’s The Expanse in 2016. Most recently he has added roles in 2017, in Twin Peaks and feature film Wind River, alongside Elizabeth Olsen and Jeremy Renner with Academy Award nominated director Taylor Sheridan.  2018 will see his feature films The Humanity Bureau opposite Nicolas Cage and Break My Heart 1000 Times with Bella Thorne.

Dillon has continued to push the boundaries of his creativity, taking a hands-on approach to developing and producing unique stories, such as short film The Offer, and Issues, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Following a celebrated return to the stage with the Headstones, Dillon has since been back in the studio to record the band’s latest two full-length albums, and their first vinyl release.  2017 has seen the release of their latest album Little Army, where the band gave their fans an exclusive behind the scenes look into the making of the album, in real time, and includes the #1 hit single ‘Devil’s On Fire’.
