The new Vanderpump Rules spinoff, The Valley, features several familiar faces from the main series. There are also several new faces in the cast, including Jax Taylor’s friend, Daniel Booko. Danny joins the cast alongside his wife, Nia Booko, and their family of five will be featured in the series. Before The Valley, however, Danny had been working as an actor and voiceover artist for nearly two decades.

Danny and his wife Nia are the proud parents of a young son named Asher and twin daughters who were born in June 2023, just 19 months after their son Asher. Nia is a former Miss USA winner and was even the first runner-up in the Miss Universe pageant in 2014. The couple brings a unique energy to the series, as seen in the practical joke Jax pulls on Danny in the first episode. It makes sense that Danny is a little bit quirky, as he has been an actor for the majority of his life.

Daniel Booko made his acting debut on ‘The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.’

Danny made his television debut in an episode of the Disney Channel series The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, starring Cole and Dylan Sprouse. He played the character of Kyle in the third episode of the very first season. He also played a frat guy in an episode of the HBO series Entourage that same year, as well as a football player in American Pie Presents: Bandcamp. Many of Danny's television appearances were one-offs, allowing him to build an impressively long IMDb credit list.

Danny was on an episode of ‘iCarly.’

Danny was also in an episode of the hit Nickelodeon series iCarly as a character named Cort. In addition to that character, he did some voiceover work for the series as well. Danny eventually moved into voiceover work while still maintaining his acting career. Danny also worked as a model while also bolstering his resume with voiceover and looper work.

Danny has a lucrative career in the voiceover world.

Danny has built up quite the voiceover resume, with over 100 credits as a looper alone. Loopers use their voices to provide ADR, or automated dialogue replacement, to movies and television shows. They essentially provide the background voices that help make the world of the film or TV show that is being filmed. Danny showcases this in the first episode of The Valley, recording himself making zombie noises to be used in The Walking Dead.

Danny and his wife Nia are already making waves on ‘The Valley.’

In the premiere episode of The Valley, Brittany Cartwright and her husband, Jax, throw a family-friendly mixer. Jax was dared by Brock Davies to pants Danny. Jax followed through with this, not realizing that Danny’s shorts were actually swim trunks, and subsequently exposed more of Danny than he had intended to. Danny took it in stride, but Nia was overwrought afterward, crying and very upset with Jax for his little prank. Is her response a sign of more dramatics to come? Hopefully, yes.
