Daniel Von Bargen was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, on June 5, 1950. He grew up there for most of his childhood before moving with his family to Southern California. He attended Purdue University, majoring in drama. Daniel joined the Trinity Repertory Theatre in Providence, Rhode Island, after graduation and worked with them for many years. A breakthrough role in Mastergate (1992) (TV) by Larry Gelbart launched him onto Broadway stages. He has also starred in off-Broadway productions of "Beggars in the House of Plenty," "Macbeth," "The Cherry Orchard," "Hurlyburly," and "Uncle Vanya." On TV, he is best known for his roles in "Malcolm in the Middle" (2000) and "The West Wing" (1999). A seemingly typecast actor, he's often playing a military officer or policeman.

  • When he was filming _The Postman (1997)_ (qv), he was forced to remain on location in Washington State and was unable to go to his parents' 50th wedding anniversary. 'Kevin Costner' (qv), director/star of the film, took time out from filming and helped him make a video for his parents to make up for his absence.
  • He has coincidentally appeared with husband and wife actors 'Jane Kaczmarek' (qv) and 'Bradley Whitford' (qv) in four different projects. Along with Kaczmarek, he appeared in _"Malcolm in the Middle" (2000)_ (qv). With Whitford, he was in _RoboCop 3 (1993)_ (qv), _Philadelphia (1993)_ (qv) and _"The West Wing" (1999)_ (qv).
