Bio:

Kevin Dunn was born in Chicago, Illinois, in 1956. He is an American actor who has made over 100 appearances in both TV and film.

One of his earliest roles was in the Alan Parker film Mississippi Burning (1988) with Gene Hackman and Willem Dafoe. He followed this up with Kathryn Bigelow's Blue Steel (1989), Ghostbusters II (1989), and the Brian De Palma hit The Bonfire of the Vanities (1990).

He has since appeared in a number of box office hits, such as Hot Shots! (1991), Chain Reaction (1996), and Godzilla (1998). He also appeared in the Oliver Stone epic, Nixon (1995) and the Ridley Scott fantasy film 1492: Conquest of Paradise (1992).

Dunn is able to fit into various roles in diverse genres with ease, whether the role in question be a political thriller like 'Robert Redford (I)'s Lions for Lambs (2007), an action film such as Tony Scotts Unstoppable (2010), or a romantic drama like Woody Allen's Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008). He is an established and reliable supporting - and character - actor.

He has gained considerable notoriety as the father in the hit movies Transformers (2007), Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009), and Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011).
