David Alan Grier, also known as "DAG," is best known for his memorable television and film characters. Grier trained in Shakespeare at Yale and began his career on Broadway as Jackie Robinson in "The First," earning him a Tony nomination. From the stage, Grier shifted from drama to comedy and landed a role on "In Living Color" with his friend Keenen Ivory Wayans. Grier worked with Wayans to develop some of the principal characters on the hit television show. After the show ended, Grier made another career change and began co-starring in successful comedy flicks such as "Boomerang," "Jumanji" and "Bewitched."

Grier also has continued to work in television; he co-starred opposite Bonnie Hunt on ABC's "Life with Bonnie," and recently produced and starred in "The Chocolate News" on Comedy Central. The show focuses on how Grier "thinks" African Americans view the world.

Earlier this year, he appeared on "Dancing with the Stars" with dancing partner Kym Johnson and will be seen next month in Paramount's "Dance Flick," a Wayans Bros tribute to Hollywood dance movies.
