||Daryl “Chill” Mitchell was born in the Bronx and raised on Long Island. He first gained national attention as a member of the three-man rap group, Groove B. Chill. He later became known for his wise-cracking regular series characters Leo Michaels, on Veronica’s Closet, and Dexter Walker on The John Larroquette Show. Mitchell has showcased his comedic talents in both television and film.
In 2001 he was in a near-fatal motorcycle accident that left him paralyzed from the mid-chest down. The accident, however, opened many news doors as he returned to television as Eli, the supervising manager of the Stuckeybowl bowling alley in the multi-award winning television series, Ed.
More recently, he returned to episodic television as the star and producer of the Fox TV series, Brothers.
Among Mitchell’s guest-starring TV credits are Here and Now and The Cosby Show, and his feature films include Galaxy Quest, 10 Things I Hate About You, Sgt. Bilko and House Party.
Chill takes an active role as an advocate. He is the winner of a Media Access Award and participates as a spokesperson for actors with a disability.
