D. C. Douglas (born February 2, 1966) is an American actor, director, writer and editor.
Douglas was born in Berkeley, California. His father was a salesman and his mother was an artist as well as a writer. His grandparents were vaudeville performers. His grandmother, Grace Hathaway, continued in burlesque as a dancer and his grandfather, Joe Miller, became known in San Francisco for his talks at the Theosophy Lodge and his weekly Thursday morning walks through Golden Gate Park.
Theatre, film and television
Douglas performed on stage in the San Francisco Bay Area in the late 70s and early 80s, moving to Los Angeles in 1985 to study at the Estelle Harman Actors Workshop. In Los Angeles, he co-founded the improvisation troupe Section Eight and was also a member of Theatre of NOTE. In 1996, he landed a small role in Boston Common, an NBC pilot. When the show was picked up for a season he returned in a recurring role as the D.C., the antagonist to Hedy Burress's character.
That same year, Douglas wrote, produced and starred in Falling Words, his first festival film short. In subsequent years he wrote, produced and directed The Eighth Plane, an anti-Scientology short and Freud and Darwin Sitting in a Tree, about Lewis Henry Morgan. In 2005, hiss film short, Duck, Duck, Goose!, played at film festivals worldwide and received awards for the Best Short from the Seattle's True Independent Film Festival (STIFF) and Best Actor from the Trenton Film Festival.
His 2009 CGI film short, The Crooked Eye starring Fay Masterson and narrated by Academy Award-winner Linda Hunt, played at festivals and won awards for Best Narration (STIFF), Best Screenplay (HDFest) and Best Animated Short (Red Rock Film Festival).
His film credits include Black Ops with Lance Henriksen, Universal Remote: The Movie, Sharknado 2, Helen Alone, Final Approach with Dean Cain and Labor Pains. His television credits include The Bold and the Beautiful, 24, Star Trek: Enterprise, NYPD Blue, ER, Charmed and Without a Trace among others. He most recently appeared in NCIS, Criminal Minds, Castle, Workaholics and Raising Hope.
Douglas has also worked with The Asylum since 2002, having appeared in seven films, including Sharknado 2 as Bud and Isle of the Dead as Aiden Wexler, another Resident Evil inspired role on the SyFy network.
His voice-over credits include The Master in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer video game, Albert Wesker in the Resident Evil series as well as Marvel vs. Capcom, Raven in Tekken 6, AWACS Ghost Eye in Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation, Commandant Alexei in Tales of Vesperia, Legion in Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3, Grimoire Noir in Nier, Hector Birtwhistle (H.B.) in Xenoblade Chronicles X, as well as several national campaigns (including the GEICO Celebrity campaign from 2006 to 2008, the McDonald's Be the Sizzle campaign from 2009 to 2010, Radio Shack's Holiday Hero campaign in 2010 and a 2014 Experian spots featuring Douglas and Tom Kenny as computers). He is also the voice of Chase in Hub Network's Transformers: Rescue Bots, Dylas in Rune Factory 4, Azrael in BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma and Coburn in Ubisoft's The Crew.
In 2016 he wrote, edited and directed an animated short, Ginger & Snapper, with Rachael Leone, an animator he met on Twitter. The short includes voice actors Lacey Chabert, Steve Blum, Liam O'Brien, Laura Bailey and Roger Craig Smith.
In addition to his commercial and video game voice-over work, he also does many voice-overs for the American Bridge 21st Century PAC and the non-profit progressive research and information center Media Matters for America.
In April 2010, Douglas came under fire from the Tea Party movement for a phone call he made to Freedomworks in which he left an inflammatory voice mail. A day later GEICO dropped him from the new "shocking news" series of internet commercials that were in post-production. This led to some debate in the voice-over community about whether announcers were public figures. He responded by producing a mock Tea Party PSA for YouTube that was subsequently broadcast on Joy Behar's HLN show with Douglas as a guest.
The experience inspired Douglas to continue creating short, satirical political videos. The most viewed were his Burn a Koran Day video (posted by The Huffington Post) and his Why #OccupyWallStreet? video (aired on MSNBC's The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell, posted on MoveOn.org and Daily Kos websites).
In November 2011, Douglas tweeted out a quote from a Tower Heist Q & A at the ArcLight Hollywood where director Brett Ratner made a disparaging remark about homosexuals. The Hollywood Reporter subsequently reported Douglas' tweet as the beginning of a controversy which led to Ratner stepping down from the 2012 Oscars.
In 2017, Douglas created and launched MSM Breaking News!, an animated web series satirizing the Donald Trump presidency as well as the Robert Mueller investigation into the Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections. A typical episode was written by Douglas and produced by his animator, Rachael Leone. Guest voice actors have included Steve Blum, Maurice LaMarche, Mary Elizabeth McGlynn, Todd Haberkorn and Mark Meer, among others.
