Catching up with Dan Butler

BRADFORD—On a windswept October day, actor Dan Butler sat down outside Vittles House of Brews, where he admired the village as he reminisced about his life. He had ordered a small mocha with cayenne, which he relished for about 40 minutes. Butler, who gained fame from the popular show “Frasier,” has gone from Indiana to New York to Los Angeles and now has settled in Newbury, where he raises chickens with his husband, Richard. In a recent interview, he revealed more about his fascinating career.
