D.B. Sweeney

Daniel Bernard "D. B." Sweeney (born November 14, 1961) is an American actor. Sweeney was born and raised in Shoreham by an educator father and a municipal government employee mother. He attended Shoreham-Wading River High School and both Tulane and New York University. Before completing his BFA at NYU in 1984, he was cast in the Broadway revival of The Caine Mutiny Court Martial. Sweeney guest starred on television series The Edge of Night and Spenser: For Hire before entering films. He portrayed a gung-ho Vietnam enlistee in Francis Ford Coppola's Gardens of Stone (1987) and Travis Walton in the 1993 film Fire in the Sky. Sweeney is perhaps best remembered for his portrayal of Doug Dorsey in The Cutting Edge (1992), Shoeless Joe Jackson in Eight Men Out (1988), or Dish Boggett in Lonesome Dove (1989). In 2000, Sweeney voiced Aladar the Iguanodon in Disney's CGI film Dinosaur. He also starred in Life as We Know It as Michael Whitman (2004–2005) and C-16: FBI produced by Michael Robin. Sweeney has guest-starred on various TV series, including House (2006) as Crandall, an ex-bandmate of Dr. Gregory House; Jericho as John Goetz (2006–2008); Castle as an LA detective (2011), and more.
