Born Sept. 5, 1946, in Wheaton, Ill., Dugan studied acting at Chicago's Goodman Theater School before moving to New York in the late 1960s. After appearing in several off-Broadway shows, he headed for Hollywood, and in 1972, he made his feature film debut in Night Call Nurses. Dugan has worked steadily ever since in film (Night Moves, 1975) and on TV (the miniseries Rich Man, Poor Man).
Over the years, Dugan moved into directing, starting with a 1987 episode of "Wiseguy" and including a host of comedic crowd-pleasers such as Saving Silverman (2001), National Security and the TV show "Shasta McNasty."
Five childhood pals reunite after 30 years to mourn the loss of their old basketball coach. Gathering at a July 4th celebration where their families meet for the first time, the friends find themselves acting quite juvenile for their age.
