Biography

A talented actor-dancer, Dulé Hill attracted notice as part of an ensemble cast on the critically-acclaimed political drama "The West Wing" (NBC, 1999-2006) prior to taking a co-starring role on the comedic police procedural "Psych" (USA, 2006- ). Classically trained in ballet and tap dance from a young age, Hill had appeared on Broadway in a production of the hit musical "The Tap Dance Kid," as well as several other off-Broadway productions before even graduating from high school. His return to Broadway as a cast member of the musical "Bring in 'da Noize, Bring in 'da Funk" and his appearance in the romantic comedy "She's All That" (1999) preceded his breakout role on "The West Wing." Hill's endearing performance as Charlie Young, the earnest and fiercely intelligent personal aide to the President (Martin Sheen) earned the dancer praise for his dramatic work. When the opportunity to take on a lead role in a new series presented itself, Hill jumped at the chance, but also returned for several episodes of the final season of "The West Wing" that same year. The gamble paid off for Hill, when the quirky "Psych" quickly built up a fan base substantial enough to make it one of the basic cable's longest-running original series. Whether dancing on stage, playing a dutiful government aide, or a button-downed sidekick, Hill never failed to charm in any role that came his way.
