He’s an American actor and tap dancer with an estimated net worth of $8 million.
Infancy and Childhood
May 3, 1975, is the date Dule Hill was born. Dule was reared in Sayreville, New Jersey, by his Jamaican parents. When he was just three years old, he learned to tap dance. As part of the 1985 Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon’s tap-dancing segment, Hill performed a routine to a full orchestra.
At the age of 10, the producers of Broadway’s “The Tap Dance Kid” phoned Hill’s dance school to inquire about his availability for their show. Young dancers who could sing and act were needed for the Minskoff Theatre play at the time. Dule Hill was eventually cast as Savion Glover’s understudy. Finally, there were other musicals. He featured in several national television ads as a teenager. “Sugar Hill” was his first significant film role, and he appeared in it during his final year of high school in 1993.
Dule Hill attended Seton Hall University and the William Esper Studio to study business finance acting. Sayreville War Memorial High School, where Hill attended until her graduation in 1993, was her last stop before college.
Dule Hill was cast in the Jim Henson show “CityKids,” which aired on ABC Saturday mornings while he was attending Seton Hall. Hill dropped out of college to appear on Broadway in Bring in ‘da Noise, Bring in ‘da Funk before finishing her degree. The film She’s All That featured Freddie Prinze, Jr. and Rachael Leigh Cook, was released in 1999. In 1999, he landed the part of Charlie Young, a presidential adviser, on The West Wing.
After only one season, the show was nominated for nine Emmys and won the Peabody Award. On “The West Wing,” he was promoted to Special Assistant to the Chief of Staff in the sixth season. For six seasons, he was a regular cast member. He frequently referred to Martin Sheen as his acting coach as a young actor.
Before the start of the seventh season of “The West Wing,” Hill decided to quit the show but returned in May 2006 for the program’s last few episodes. In the same year, Dule signed on to play James Roday’s foil in the television comedy “Psych.” From 2009 until 2014, he worked on the program as a producer. Other roles include “10.5,” “Holes,” and “The Guardian,” all from Disney. “Stick Fly” was his Broadway role from December 2011 to February 2012. From 2015 to 2019, Hill participated in 15 episodes of “Ballers.” Hill appeared in “Suits” as Alex Williams from 2017 until 2019. Hill provided the voice of Mr. Manny for four episodes of the rebooted “Muppet Babies.”
In “Night of the Animated Dead,” Hill gave his voice to several other animated projects. Hills’ most recent projects are “Gayby,” Gravity, Sleight, Locked Down, and Hypnotic.” Hill has been playing Bill Williams in the “Wonder Years” revival since 2021.
Life at Home
