It never says it explicitly, but what it was implying IMO was that Dylan was never really Dylan, we just know him by the characters he's played.
I went and saw Angels and Demons tonight and it was much better than I expected. Da Vinci Code sucked, the pace was way too slow and never captured the excitement of the book but this one was able to recapture at least some of it. It felt like it was more for people who have read the book, leaving out the history and conversation for the most part and staying on top of the suspense. I think it's the best Ron Howard could do with it and I hope he sticks to letting the book handle the little details in the next couple of movies as well.
