DAVID DEAN BOTTRELL is a multi-hyphenate. David is familiar to television audiences from his breakout role in David E. Kelley’s Boston Legal, playing the wonderfully psychotic “Lincoln Meyer”. He has enjoyed roles on many popular shows including Head of the Class, Caroline in the City, Dharma and Greg, JAG and most recently Harry’s Law, Castle, Criminal Minds, iCarly and a recurring role on Days of Our Lives.

His comedic POV column appears each month in Metrosource Magazine and he’s a regular contributor for the Huffington Post, where he blogs about his experiences in the entertainment industry, as well as his own popular industry Web site – PartsAndLabor – a must read for all middle class Hollywood.
As a director, he is currently directing a stage adaptation of Graham Greene’s much-loved novel “Travels with My Aunt” at the Colony Theater in Burbank, and directed (as well as wrote) the award-winning short comedy film, Available Men which screened at more than 130 film festivals.
