Early life

Butler grew up in both the U.S. (Washington, DC, Virginia, and the suburbs of Syracuse, New York) as well as the Bahamas. He attended high school in the Bahamas and graduated Magna cum Laude from Trinity College (Chicago, Illinois), as a history major. He worked as an economic consultant for a Washington, DC-based law firm before embarking on his career as an actor. In DC, he studied privately with Vera Katz of Howard University. Later he studied with David Mamet, William H. Macy, Felicity Huffman, Scott Zigler, and Robert Bella of the Atlantic Theater Company. He became a member of the Atlantic in 1991. He is a professional Barack Obama impersonator and performs in venues in Atlanta, Georgia.


He starred in shows such as Without a Trace, Crossing Jordan, Boston Legal and Dirty Sexy Money. He also starred in the HBO film Everyday People. He now plays the role of Oscar on True Jackson, VP.
