Dean’s first film role was in the somewhat mythical Dante Shocko during his year in Hollywood (1974). Then, in a brief visit to NYC he ran into a couple of old college chums and decided to stay. He thrived there as an actor for 10 years (while co-producing an Off Broadway Play). Then he “met THE girl”, left town and started a family. In 2018 (30+ years later), he re-fired his earlier showbiz impulse. He has recently been in several short films and can be seen in The Deuce (HBO) and in Hunters (Amazon).
