Dennis Cole's career has covered almost every area of the performing arts. Starting as a motion picture and television stunt man, dancing in many film musicals, his acting career was launched with a starring role in ABC TV's Felony Squad with Howard Duff and Ben Alexander. Another major television role was that of Lance Prentiss in The Young and the Restless.
He guest starred in a host of television shows, such as The Love Boat, Charlie's Angels, Murder She Wrote, Silk Stalkings, Pacific Blue and Baywatch, among others. After performing for many years in television, Dennis became involved in theater when he landed the leading role in the Broadway-bound show; ALL THE GIRLS CAME OUT TO PLAY. Looking to add yet another dimension to his career, Dennis performed his own musical revue at the famous Gazzarri's on the Sunset Strip and at the Debbie Reynolds Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Dennis has previously toured with Ray Cooney's British farces: RUN FOR YOU WIFE and OUT OF ORDER. His most recent production was as the Narrator in BLOOD BROTHERS at New York State's Art-Park and most recently played the infamous King Marchan in the first National tour of Broadway's Victor / Victoria.
As a result of an injury sustained while performing on stage with Victor, Victoria Dennis has had to undergo 3 surgeries and has been sidelined for almost 3 ½ years. While Dennis has been out of sight from stage and screen, he has continued to make time for his charitable work. In addition, he decided to make the best of his recuperative period by going back to school and starting his own real estate company: "CELEBRITY REALITY, INC." Dennis has now merged his company and formed "The Celebrity Group" as a broker associate with Homes Realty and the UBUY Group.
Dennis has been involved with the Cancer Society as Honorary Chairman for some 20 years and continues to work with the Willie Shoemaker Foundation and the Arthritis Foundation. He has most recently performed for The Children's Home Society in Ft. Lauderdale and will perform for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, in Boca Raton, Florida.
The loss of his son, Joey to murder, still seems unbelievable to him and as he continues looking to find answers to that horrendous crime, in the twelve years that have passed Dennis feels they have served to strengthen his belief in God and he now feels that Joey was taken from this world because he was needed somewhere else and is serving to give love and guidance to others on another plane.
As Dennis reflects on his career, he feels that he has been one of the luckiest people in the world to have worked with and met so many great artists. "I'm a guy from Detroit…who never dreamed that my life would be filled with such incredible excitement, adventure and good fortune. I'm truly thankful to God and the many Angel's in my life"… Expand
