Daniel Bernard "D. B." Sweeney (born November 14, 1961) is an American actor. D.B. Sweeney was born on Long Island, New York and raised in Shoreham by an educator father and a municipal government employee mother. He attended Shoreham-Wading River High School where he was a member of the Omega Gamma Delta fraternity. He attended both Tulane and New York University. Though he had trouble getting sizeable roles in student productions while still in school, upon his graduation he was immediately cast in the Broadway revival of The Caine Mutiny Court Martial. D.B Sweeney guest starred on television series The Edge of Night and Spenser: For Hire before entering films, where he portrayed a gung-ho Vietnam enlistee in Francis Ford Coppola's Gardens of Stone (1987).
