Trivia

Graduate of Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, VA.

Trademark: Very popular for playing smug lecherous businessman types--usually up to something... all in the name of making more money.

He was cast in the award-winning 1999 independent romantic comedy "Giving it Up" in the role of Johnathan Gallant, the President of the advertising agency after the original choice refused. The director remarked, "Dabney was even better."

He achieved true celebrity status with the antagonistic misogynistic villianous roles in "Nine-To-Five" and "Tootsie."
