Unlike some actors who would rather stick to the film genre they master at, Dermot Mulroney has taken an eclectic career path which contains diverse characters he brilliantly portrayed, certainly making him an exceptional thespian of his generation.
An American of predominantly Irish descent, Dermot grew up in Alexandria, Virginia along with his four siblings from the day he was born on October 31, 1963. Williams High School in 1981, he headed for Chicago, Illinois to enroll in Northwestern University where he later obtained a BFA degree by 1985.
He had a daughter with her in 2008, which was just a year after the separation in December 2007.
He never talked about how he met her and when they met, and thus, the rumors grew bigger with time. Since there was no alleged pictures or cheating rumors when he was married to her, it was considered that he met her after the separation.
In 2007, Dermot filed a divorce from his wife stating irreconcilable differences as the reason. In the next year, she introduced her next boyfriend to the public, Benicio Del Toro. Keener is very concerned about what she lets the public know about her.
She talks about her friends, but never uses their names.
There were a lot of rumors about her separation from Dermot and the relationship break up with Benicio. The other parties involved in the rumors also did not comment.Overally, I found it quite enjoyable, really almost perfect.My biggest gripes, if you can call them that, are: 1) that we're asked to believe that Dermot Mulroney's character is *so* into Debra Messing's character pretty early on, without much to back it up; and 2) that some of the most romantic lines in the movie are spoiled by being used in the trailer (I hate it when that happens).Unfortunately, his merciless mother will do anything to destroy their relationship."The Wedding Date" centers around Kat Ellis (Messing), who returns to her parents' London home for her sister's wedding.Afraid of confronting her ex-fiancé, who dumped her two years before, she hires a top-drawer male escort (Mulroney) to pose as her new boyfriend.Looking at the breakdown of the voting on this movie, it's clear that it really appeals to some people, and not at all to others.Already developed a fondness for acting at such a young age, he afterwards joined children's community theater which was later followed by a stage performance in "Are Teachers Human" when he was still a student of George Washington Junior High. Putting full concentration to pursue an acting career, he quickly encountered his screen debut through a CBS TV movie, "Sin of Innocence," which was aired in 1986.After playing a troubled teenager in two other TV productions of "The Drug Knot" (1986) and "Daddy" (1987), he successfully landed a major part in "Young Guns" (1988) which was also starred by the brat-pack group of Emilio Estevez, Charlie Sheen, and Kiefer Sutherland.Keener’s relationship with Benicio is very private.She announced that she was dating him and the next year, they broke up.
