A SAG/AFTRA member since 1971 and WGA member since 2007, Dylan got his big break into feature films playing Cameron across from Robin Williams in Peter Weir's Dead Poets Society. His screenwriting career started soon after when his scripted feature Burn won a grand jury prize at the 1997 Slamdance Film Festival. Since then, he's adapted Randy Shilts' The Mayor Of Castro Street for Warner Brothers, written and directed the award-winning web series The Steps, directed the feature film Wrestling Jerusalem and served as a production writer on the two most recent Mission: Impossible films (Rogue Nation and Fallout) as well as on Universal's 2016 The Mummy starring Tom Cruise, for which he was awarded a full screenplay credit. He currently lives with his wife and son in Chattanooga, TN.
