The cast of Red Dwarf as of Season 3. In the foreground from left to right: Cat, Lister, and Rimmer. In the background is Kryten, and on the monitor is Holly's avatar.

Daniel (Danny) John-Jules (born in London on September 16, 1960) is a British dancer and actor.


He is perhaps best known for playing The Cat (and its alter ego, Duane Dibbley) in Red Dwarf, the television sitcom (Britcom in the U.S.A.) and an up-coming film. He got the part of the Cat by turning up an hour late for his audition, dressed in his father's old zoot suit, and playing totally unconcerned about this fact. The producers decided that he was cool enough to be the Cat.

He has also played the parts of Barrington in Maid Marian and Her Merry Men and of Milton Wordsworth, one of the magical characters in The Story Makers.

Since 1999, he had several guest appearances as "himself" in shows such as Comedy Connections, Casualty, RI:SE and Night Fever.


In film, he has appeared in Labyrinth, the 1986 version of Little Shop of Horrors, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, and Blade II (as himself).

Dance and Song

Before his television and film work he was a dancer, including many productions at West End theatres. He was a member of the original cast of Starlight Express, playing a boxcar, Rocky I. In 1993, he released a song from Red Dwarf, "Tongue Tied", as a single, which got into the top 20 of the UK Singles Chart.
