(1991); Chaplin (1992); Nixon (1995); Chain Reaction (1996); Almost Heroes (1998); Snake Eyes (1998); I Heart Huckabees (2004); and All the King's Men (2006).

Dunn brings humanity to each one of his roles whether it is the principal rooting for his one of his teachers in a mixed martial arts fight in Warrior, to a blue collar, handy-man father in the Transformers trilogy, to a corporate suite more concerned with money than human lives in Unstoppable or a damaged soul who brings a group of degenerates together on the HBO series Luck.

Kevin also appears in Frozen Ground with John Cusack and Nicolas Cage playing Bob Jent, the Lt. for the Alaska State Troopers; and Fire With Fire with Bruce Willis and Rosario Dawson, playing an FBI agent.

Kevin was a series regular on the HBO series Luck. Michael Mann directed the pilot and executive produced and David Milch wrote the pilot about the world of horse racing and gambling. Kevin played the role of Marcus, a prodigious misanthrope, who ringmasters a syndicate of misfits.

Films include Transformers: Dark of the Moon, for which Kevin reprised his role from the first two films as Ron Witwicky, Sam Witwicky's (Shia LaBeouf) quirky, handyman father; and the late Tony Scott's Unstoppable, with Denzel Washington and Chris Pine where he plays Oscar Galvin, Rosario Dawson's boss and head of the train yard.

He also appears in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Woody Allen's Vicky Christina Barcelona with Scarlett Johansson and Penelope Cruz where he and Patricia Clarkson's characters play host to Scarlett Johansson and Rebecca Hall's character while in Barcelona, Lions For Lambs directed by Robert Redford where he played Meryl Streep's editor, The Gridiron Gang with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Black Dahlia and All the King's Men.

His other films include I Heart Huckabees, the Christopher Guest comedy Almost Heroes, the thriller Stir of Echoes, Nixon, where he played Charles Colson, Chaplin, where he played J. Edgar Hoover, Godzilla, Chain Reaction, Small Soldiers, 1492, Bonfire of the Vanities and Mississippi Burning.

One of his most known roles is in the film Dave as press secretary Alan Reed, opposite Kevin Kline as the president.

A busy actor seen regularly on television Dunn has made dozens of guest appearances including playing a lawyer opposite Kathy Bates on David E. Kelley's Harry's Law, a con artist opposite Josh Holloway's character, Sawyer on Lost as well as several other television series and has starred in many made-for-television movies.

He garnered great reviews for portraying Murray Wilson in the highly rated ABC mini-series The Beach Boys: An American Family.
