Dashiell "Dash" Mihok (/ˈdæʃ ˈmɪhɔːk/; born May 24, 1974) is an American actor best known for playing "Bunchy" Donovan in the Showtime drama Ray Donovan.
Mihok was named after writer Dashiell Hammett, the author of The Thin Man, The Glass Key and The Maltese Falcon. His last name is usually mispronounced "me-Hawk," but he says the Czech surname is pronounced "my"-Hawk.
Mihok was diagnosed with Tourette syndrome at age six, and is the spokesperson for the nonprofit Jaylens Challenge, as well as an active supporter of the Tourette Syndrome Association.
Mihok said that one reason he became an actor was probably because he was experienced so well in hiding his Tourette's, that he was acting all the time. He said the focus required of acting allows him to mask many of his tics. Mihok says the biggest misconception about Tourette's Syndrome is about vocal tics, called coprolalia. Not everyone with Tourette's does that: "Tics tend to wax and wane, not everybody's screaming obscenities all the time." Mihok said he took medication during high school for the Tourette's.
In 1997, Mihok met Alanis Morissette through friend Leonardo DiCaprio during a trip to Cuba. The lyrics to the songs "So Pure" from Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie and "That Particular Time" from Under Rug Swept are about him.
In 2009, Mihok married singer Valeria Mason.
