Wolfgang Bodison (born November 19, 1966 in Washington, D.C.) is an American actor, best known for playing Lance Cpl. Harold W. Dawson in the drama A Few Good Men. Bodison grew up in Rockville, Maryland and was a graduate of Richard Montgomery High School, the same school that graduated singer-songwriter Ellen "Tori" Amos. Bodison graduated from the University of Virginia where he also played football. He was a film location scout and assistant to director Rob Reiner, when he was asked to take part in a screen test for the part of the authoritative Lance Cpl. Dawson in the movie A Few Good Men in which, accused of murder, he practically coerces lawyer Tom Cruise into putting up a fight in court rather than take the easy way out with a plea bargain. Since then, Bodison has appeared in such films as Little Big League, Goodbye America, Silver Strand, Most Wanted and Joe Somebody, and TV shows such as Murder, She Wrote, ER, Highlander, Charmed, and CSI: NY.
