Known for his quirky characterizations, Bottrell is probably best known for playing the creepy "Lincoln Meyer" on season three of "Boston Legal." Other memorable work includes recurring and guest star work on such shows as "Modern Family," "FBI: Most Wanted," "Law and Order (2022)," "The Blacklist," "Rectify," "Law and Order: SVU," "Longmire," "Mad Men," "Justified," "True Blood," "NCIS," "Criminal Minds," "Castle," "iCarly," and "Days of Our Lives." A former off-Broadway actor & playwright, his critically-acclaimed one-man show, "David Dean Bottrell Makes Love: A One-Man Show" consistently plays to sold out audiences on both coasts. Bottrell co-wrote the stage play, "Dearly Departed" as well as the film adaptation entitled "Kingdom Come" starring Whoopi Goldberg, L.L. Cool J., Anthony Anderson and Jada Pinkett-Smith. He's been a columnist for Backstage, Huffington Post and Metrosource, and is also the author of the critically acclaimed how-to book, "Working Actor: Breaking In, Making a Living and Making a Life in the Fabulous Trenches of Show Business" published by Random House (Ten Speed Press) in February 2019. Bottrell divides his time between Los Angeles and New York.
