Dan Butler

Daniel Eugene "Dan" Butler (born December 2, 1954) is an American actor known for his role as Bob "Bulldog" Briscoe on the TV series Frasier. He is the voice of Mr. Simmons and Lila's father.

Personal life

Butler was born in Huntington, Indiana and raised in Fort Wayne, the son of Shirley, a homemaker, and Andrew Butler, a pharmacist. While a drama student at Indiana University in 1975, he received the Irene Ryan Acting Scholarship, sponsored by the Kennedy Center.

Butler is openly gay. He came out to his family when he was in his early 20s. He wrote a one-man show, The Only Thing Worse You Could Have Told Me, which played in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and off-Broadway in New York and was Butler's public coming out. The play had ten characters "just processing what gay means". Butler performed the show at the same time as he played the ultra macho character Bulldog in the first season of the television show Frasier in 1994.

Butler's partner is producer Richard Waterhouse.
