Daniel Bernard "D. B." Sweeney (born November 14, 1961) is an American actor.

Early life

Sweeney was born and raised in Shoreham by an educator father and a municipal government employee mother. He attended Shoreham-Wading River High School and both Tulane and New York University. Before completing his BFA at NYU in 1984, he was cast in the Broadway revival of The Caine Mutiny Court Martial.

Career

Sweeney guest starred on television series The Edge of Night and Spenser: For Hire before entering films. He portrayed a gung-ho Vietnam enlistee in Francis Ford Coppola's Gardens of Stone (1987) and Travis Walton in the fact-based 1993 film Fire in the Sky. Sweeney is perhaps best remembered for his portrayal of Doug Dorsey in The Cutting Edge (1992), Shoeless Joe Jackson in Eight Men Out (1988), or Dish Boggett in Lonesome Dove (1989). In 2000, Sweeney voiced Aladar the Iguanodon in Disney's CGI film Dinosaur.
He also starred in Life as We Know It as Michael Whitman (2004–2005) and C-16: FBI produced by Michael Robin.
Sweeney has guest-starred on various TV series, including House (2006) as Crandall, an ex-bandmate of Dr. Gregory House; Jericho as John Goetz (2006–2008); Castle as an LA detective (2011), and more. He also had recurring roles as US Marshal Sam Kassmeyer, assigned to protect Haley and Jack Hotchner on Criminal Minds (2009); as Peter Emory in season 1 of Crash (2008); and as Carter in The Event (2010).
He's currently the voice-over artist for the OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network and his large body of voiceover work includes three seasons of Fox Sports Net's Beyond the Glory and National Geographic Television's Ice Pilots. Past ad campaigns include Bud Light, Lincoln cars, Conoco-Phillips, John Deere, Major League Baseball and Coca Cola.
Sweeney plays Captain John Trent in the horror web series, Universal Dead. In late June 2010, it was announced that Universal Dead will be made into a feature film.
A supporter of the U.S. military, Sweeney founded a website Lettersfromhollywood.army.mil to get messages of support to active duty and retired military. He has made multiple visits to the Middle East and Europe to visit with service members. On May 4, 2008, Sweeney flew with the helicopter squadron HMM-364, "The World Famous Purple Foxes", in a CH-46E while in Iraq visiting with service members and promoting his new film, Two Tickets to Paradise.
In 2012, Sweeney voiced the adult version of Avatar Aang in The Legend of Korra, the sequel series of Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Personal Life

Sweeney is married to Ashley Vachon (April 2000 - present) and they have two children.
