Biography

The son of a Queens, NY bus driver, Daryl 'Chill' Mitchell grew up on Long Island and first came to public attention as a member of the three-man rap group Groove B. Chill. Making the video to promote their debut album, "Starting from Zero", introduced them to the Hudlin Brothers and led to their feature debut in "House Party" (1990), written and directed by Reginald Hudlin. Finding the experience particularly enjoyable, Mitchell decided to focus on an acting career and, after appearances in "House Party 2" (1991) and "Boomerang" (1992), landed a co-starring role as the rapper Kayam in Steve Gomer's "Fly By Night" (1993), winner of the Filmmaker's Trophy at the Sundance Film Festival. His other feature credits include the by-the-book private in "Sgt. Bilko" (1996) and supporting roles in the comedies "A Thin Line Between Love & Hate" (also 1996) and "Home Fries" (1998).

Bonus Trivia

.

Offered roles in black-oriented sitcoms, Mitchell chose "The John Larroquette Show" instead: "I was seeking longevity. I knew ['Larroquette'] was a broader cast, and would appeal to a broader audience." --Daryl 'Chill' Mitchell in DAILY NEWS, May 28, 1996

Having established himself as an actor, Mitchell hopes to have an album of his new rap songs out in the near future.
