Mini Bio (1)

D.C. Douglas was born in Berkeley, California, but lived throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. With a family history that included the circus, vaudeville and burlesque, D.C. fell into theatre at an early age.

After high school he moved to Los Angeles to study under Estelle Harman (former head of talent for Universal). During the late 80s and early 90s he performed with various Los Angeles theatre companies, including several years as a member of the critically acclaimed New One-Act Theatre Ensemble (Theatre of NOTE).

His first break came in 1996, when he was cast in a guest role on the NBC pilot Boston Common (1996). Max Mutchnick and David Kohan so appreciated his "where's Waldo" look that he returned for 10 more episodes as the conservative and humorless student "D.C." This led to a modest, yet steady stream of work.

He remained a mostly anonymous character actor and voice over artist until 2008 when he was cast as the voice of Albert Wesker in Biohazard 5 (2009) and Legion in Mass Effect 2 (2010). Adding to his visibility were a series of non-acting events; his public battle with Tea Party PAC Freedomworks on cable news, his subsequent viral videos (including "Why #OccupyWllStreet? 4 Reasons"), and, oddly, being credited by The Hollywood Reporter with the tweet that began the Brett Ratner Academy Awards controversy.

As a voice over artist his commercial work spans over 20 years. Notable credits include Netflix's "Tiger," McDonalds' "Be The Sizzle" campaign and Geico's "Celebrity" campaigns.

In addition to his viral videos, D.C. Douglas wrote, produced, directed and edited numerous film shorts. The Crooked Eye (2009), starring Academy Award winner Linda Hunt, was recently released on iTunes.

D.C. continues to act in film, television and video games. In addition, he often can be found as a guest of honor at anime and comic cons throughout the US.
