Notable role (as a child): Richie White in Over The Edge (1979) 

Most people remember a 19-year-old Dillon playing the reckless and rebellious Dallas in the classic film adaptation of The Outsiders. However, Dillon established himself as the go-to actor to cast in gritty dramas with his starring role in Over the Edge, where he leads a group of bored misfits neglected by their parents.
