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.
