As an American actor who has made a name for himself through films such as Young Guns (1988), My Best Friend’s Wedding (1997), and the NBC television series Crisis (2014), Dermot Mulroney has been around as long as many people can remember. He is also a musician, but it is thanks to his work on the big screen that many have gotten to know him. Here you will find interesting facts about the actor.
Dermot Mulroney Bio And Age
The actor was born on 31 October 1963 in Alexandria, Virginia. He is of Irish and German descent and grew up together with four other siblings: one sister and three brothers in a family that is not entirely foreign to the arts. His mother, Ellen Mulroney, was an amateur actress.
As a small child, the actor was interested in music as one of his first things, which led to the fact that he learned to play the cello since his primary school days. From there he went to T. C. Williams High School and then to Northwestern University where he studied film and television production. By this time he had already paved his way to success as an actor.
Dermont made his first appearance as an actor in 1986 in the television series Fame, CBS Schoolbreak Special, and Sin of Innocence. The following year he appeared in Daddy and Long Gone. He then appeared in other television shows, including The Batman, The Memory Keeper’s Daughter, Shameless, and American Horror Story: Cult.
Apart from the television series, Dermot Mulroney had more appearances in movies like Sunset and Young Guns in 1988. In 1989 he appeared in Staying Together, Survival Quest, and Longtime Companion. He subsequently appeared in many other films, including August: Osage County (2013), which won him many awards, and Careful What You Wish For, Truth, Insidious: Chapter 3, and Northpole: Open for Christmas.
So far, the actor has had a career that can simply be described as very successful, with over 80 productions, many nominations, and a good number of awards. He took home the Best Actor Award at the Seattle International Film Festival in 1992 for Where the Day Takes You, the Best Kiss Award at the MTV Movie Awards with Winona Ryder in How to Make an American Quilt (1995), and the Ensemble of the Year Award at the Hollywood Film Festival, which he won in August with Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts and Benedict Cumberbatch: Osage County (2013).
Wife And Children
Dermot Mulroney has been married twice in his life. The first woman he got engaged to and who should become his first wife is the American actress Catherine Keener. The two married in 1990 after they had met on the set of Survival Quest three years earlier. In 2005 the couple had already separated, and in 2007 the actor filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences. Before the end of the year, the divorce was finalized.
While Catherine Keener would continue with Benicio Del Toro the next year, Mulroney married Tharita Cutulle in 2008. Tharita was born in 1973 in Italy, Milan, and is a film producer and cinematography agent.
From his two marriages, the Irish-American actor has had three children. His first child, Clyde Keener Mulroney, was born to him on June 21, 1999, by Catherine Keener. In addition, Tharita Cutulle gave the actor two daughters, Mabel, who was born the same year of their marriage, and Sally, who was born in 2009.
Dermot Mulroney Net Worth
Since he worked as an actor for many years and was also involved with music and other things, there is hardly any reason why you shouldn’t expect Mulroney to have a very good fortune. The actor is said to have a net worth estimated at 11 million dollars.
Height And Weight
There is hardly any argument that Dermot Mulroney is still a good-looking man even after his advanced age. One of the things that have contributed to his beautiful appearance is of course his good size and rather a good physique. Expressed in numbers, he stands at 5 feet 9 inches (1.75 m) and weighs 160 lbs (72 kg).
