Dulé Hill can currently be seen opposite Chiwetel Ejiofor and Anne Hathaway in the HBO Max heist film "Locked Down." Hill most recently recurred in the second season of the SHOWTIME series "Black Monday." Previously, he portrayed the role of Alex Williams in the USA Network drama "Suits," appeared in the HBO series "Ballers" with Dwayne Johnson and starred in J.D. Dillard's drama "Sleight," which has received rave reviews since its 2016 Sundance Film Festival debut. Hill can next be seen in the Netflix film "Hypnotic."
Theatrically, Hill starred in the People's Light production of "Lights Out: Nat 'King' Cole" by Colman Domingo and Patricia McGregor. Recently, he reprised his role of Nat "King" Cole in the West Coast premiere production at the Geffen Playhouse.
Previously, Hill portrayed the role of Burton "Gus" Guster in the USA Network comedy "Psych" which ran for eight seasons and he served as a producer on the series. He received four NAACP Image Award nominations for "Outstanding Actor in a Comedy Series." Hill revived his role with the original co-stars in the films "Psych: The Movie" and "Psych 2: Lassie Come Home," which aired this past summer on NBC Universal's Peacock.
Hill appeared in the Tony®-nominated musical "After Midnight" and co-starred in the Alicia Keys-produced play "Stick Fly" on Broadway. Best known for his work as Charlie Young on "The West Wing," Hill first came to prominence as The Kid opposite Savion Glover and Jeffrey Wright in "Bring in 'Da Noise, Bring in 'Da Funk" (Public Theatre, Broadway), directed by George C. Wolfe. The history of African American people told through tap dance and music, "Bring in 'Da Noise, Bring in 'Da Funk," proved one of the most exciting events of the 1996 Broadway season. His stage credits also include "Black and Blue" (Broadway), "Shenandoah" (Paper Mill Playhouse) and "The Little Rascals" (Goodspeed Opera House). In 2007, Hill returned to the stage where he starred in "Dutchman" (Cherry Lane Theatre), Amiri Baraka's Obie award-winning play about a white woman who seduces a naïve bourgeois Black man on a train with terrifying results.
Born in Orange, New Jersey, and raised in nearby Sayreville, Hill began attending dance school when he was 3 and received his first break years later as the understudy to Savion Glover in "The Tap Dance Kid" on Broadway. He went on to perform the lead role in the musical's national tour alongside Harold Nicholas of the legendary Nicholas Brothers.
In 1999, Hill joined the cast of NBC's acclaimed series "The West Wing" as Charlie Young, personal aide to the president (Martin Sheen) and, subsequently, deputy special assistant to the chief of staff (Allison Janney). During his seven seasons on the series, Hill garnered an Emmy® Award nomination and four Image Award nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series, as well as receiving two Screen Actors Guild Awards as part of the ensemble in a drama series.
Previous credits include the Independent Spirit Award-nominated film "Gayby," David Mamet's "Edmond" opposite William H. Macy, "The Guardian," "Sugar Dulé" and "She's All That."
