Dule Hill’s Net Worth

Dule Hill's Net Worth

Dule Hill, whose first name is Karim according to Wikipedia, is a television and film actor. Do you recognize him by name? What if we told you that he played the character of Gus on the TV show “Psych”? Or that he was Charlie Young on “The West Wing?” If you weren’t familiar with his name before, then it’s probably ringing a bell now. But do you have any guess as to Dule Hill’s net worth?

Who Is Dule Hill?

According to his IMDB biography, Dule Hill was born in New Jersey in 1975. His parents are Jamaican; Dad is an entrepreneur and mom a teacher. He has one older brother.

Although he ultimately has become well-known for his acting roles on both the small and big screen, Dule Hill started out as a singer and dancer. In fact, believe it or not, he was only three years old when he joined the Marie Wildey School of Dance. Three years old!

When he was still a young child, he got the role of Savion Glover’s understudy for Broadway’s “The Tap Dance Kid.” He went on to perform that lead role for over a year when the musical did its national tour. Wikipedia reports that at age 10 he went on Jerry Lewis’s MDA telethon to tap dance, which he ended up having to do to an unexpected song played live by the orchestra because they couldn’t find his music! IMDB adds that other musicals he was in while young include “Little Rascals,” “Black & Blue,” and “Shenandoah.”

Fun fact from IMDB: Hill still enjoys tap dancing. In fact, he did so with Savion Glover in 2001 at the 32nd NAACP Image Awards show.

High School and College

Although he was doing well on stage, he was also interested in screen acting. Hill started getting jobs in commercials. Then, he appeared in his first film while still in his senior year of high school. The film was “Sugar Hill.” He played the younger version of Wesley Snipes’ character in the film.

Before that year (1993) was over, he had started attending college while at the same time appearing on Jim Henson’s Saturday morning show “CityKids.” Although he had enough success behind him to have given acting a full-time go, education was important to him, perhaps because his mom is an educator. He decided to continue studying acting at William Esper Studio, honing his craft.

But at the same time he gave himself an edge up on life by also attending Seton Hall University where he studied business finance. Whether or not you go into business for a living, knowing about money is good common sense, and it’s surely helped as Dule Hill’s net worth has grown. That said, IMDB reports that ultimately he had to make a decision about whether to stay at Seton Hall of accept the starring role in Broadway’s “Bring in Da’ Noise, Bring In Da’ Funk.” He chose the latter, leaving college during his junior year. He spent over two years in that role and it served I’m well as far as networking and accolades.

Dule Hill’s TV and Film Appearances

We already know that Dule Hill’s first film was “Sugar Hill” in 1993. But what else has he done on the big and small screens that have contributed to Dule Hill’s net worth?

IMDB shows that he had small roles on a variety of different television shows and TV movies from 1993 – 1999. Then in 1999 he was in the film “She’s All That.” Additional films quickly followed including “Men of Honor” in 2000, “Holes” in 2003, “Sexual Life” in 2004, “Edmund” in 2005, and “The Guardian” in 2006.

Dule Hill’s Big TV Roles

At the same time, though, he was making a name for himself on “The West Wing.” He played Charlie Young from 1999 – 2006. In 2001 and 2002, he and the cast won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series. They were nominated for that award in other years as well.

Then in 2006 he started playing the role of Burton “Gus” Guster on “Psych” which was just a web series at the time. However, it was quickly picked up as a TV series and he continued to play that role for about eight years. During those years, he also made appearances in several films and shorts.

After “Psych” came to an end, Dule Hill chalked up a number of other TV roles:

  • Larry Siefert in “Ballers”
  • Albert Cobb in “Doubt”
  • Alex Williams in “Suits”
  • Marcus Duane Wainwright III in “Black Monday”
  • Mr. Manny in the “Muppet Babies” TV short

Most recently, he’s playing the role of Bill Williams in the new version of “The Wonder Years.”

Additional Movie Mentions

In addition to the movies noted above, there have been three TV movie spinoffs of “Psych.” The first was in 2017. The second in 2020. And the final is filming now. It’s called “This Is Gus” so presumably he is the main focus of this movie. Depending how that does, it could potentially add to Dule Hill’s net worth.

Dule Hill also has three other movies from 2021: “Locked Down,” “Night of the Animated Dead” (which is a voice role), and “Hypnotic.” He sure is keeping busy!

Dule Hill’s Personal Life

Dule Hill married Canadian actress Nicole Lyn in 2004. She had been in some episodes of “The West Wing.” And fun fact, according to IMDB, she also started taking dance classes at age three. They were married for about eight years, divorcing without having any children.

In 2017, Dule Hill became engaged to Jazmyn Simon. She had been on the show “Ballers” with him. She already had a daughter, who Hill adopted. In 2019, the now-married couple had a son together, Levi Dule Hill. Ecelebrityspy reports that the family lives in a 4000 square foot house. It was a 1970s house that they renovated, and you can actually see the renovation on the show “Styling Hollywood” on Netflix.
