Bio

Dulé Hill is an American actor best known for his starring television roles as presidential aide Charlie Hill in The West Wing (1999-2006) and as Gus on Psych, from 2006-2014.

Hill was born in Orange, New Jersey, raised in nearby Sayreville, and is the youngest of two sons born to his Jamaican parents (his father is an investment banker and his mother an educator).

He began attending dance school when he was three and got his first break years later when producers of Broadway's The Tap Dance Kid called the school in search of child dancers who could sing and act for the production.

As the understudy to Savion Glover in The Tap Dance Kid, he went on to perform the lead role in the musical's national tour working with Harold Nicholas (of the famed Nicholas Brothers) for the next 16 months.

He also later appeared with Gregory Hines and Jimmy Slyde.

Hill's next career boost came with his starring role in the original cast of Bring in Da' Noise, Bring In Da' Funk on Broadway, as he re-teamed with Glover, requiring him to interrupt his college studies during his junior year at Seton Hall.

He spent two-and-one-half years in the show and earned favourable notices from casting directors, which led to a starring role with Freddie Prinze, Jr. in the hit feature film She's All That.

His other television credits include guest apperances in Cosby, Smart Guy and New York Undercover, and appearances in the TV movies The Ditch Digger's Daughter, Color of Justice and Love Songs (opposite Louis Gossett Jr.).

Away from the set, Hill still enjoys tap dancing as well as bowling, paintball games and marathon Monopoly sessions. He rates himself as a Los Angeles Lakers freak.

He often travels to Jamaica to see family members.
