From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Douglas Sills (born July 5, 1960) is an American actor. Born in Detroit, Michigan, he grew up in the suburb of Franklin, where he was friends (and did amateur theatrics and films) with both Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell. Sills attended Cranbrook School, from which he graduated in 1978, and the University of Michigan where he majored in music. He then continued his education at the American Conservatory Theatre in California.

During the 1990s Sills built a solid reputation as a stage character actor, especially in the professional theaters of southern California. He also performed in several national tours, including Into The Woods. His first Broadway role, however, came when composer Frank Wildhorn and lyricist Nan Knighton arrived in hopes of finding a male lead for their new musical, The Scarlet Pimpernel. Before this audition, Sills told his agent not to send him out on any more auditions because he was going to law school; he scored in the 99th percentile on the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) so he could make a stable living. However, being a fan of the movie as a child, Sills decided to give acting one more chance. Luckily, the casting directors cast Sills as Sir Percy Blakeney, the lead role. Douglas Sills opened on his first Broadway show on November 9, 1997. Continuing the role in three other versions of the show, Sills received a Tony Award nomination for his role.
