Roger Elizabeth De Bris is a fictional character who first appeared in Mel Brooks' 1968 movie, The Producers, played by Christopher Hewett.

He is a gay theatre director, described by Max Bialystock as the worst director to have ever lived. The character returned in the 2001 Broadway musical of the same name, and also in a 2005 Hollywood movie, which was based on the musical. Both times he was played by Gary Beach. He lives with his equally flamboyant partner Carmen Ghia and his production crew in a house described as an Upper East Side town house in New York.


  • De Bris is described by Bialystock as the worst director to ever live, and was chosen by Bialystock in an attempt to ensure that "Springtime for Hitler" would flop.
