Daniel John Travanti (b. March 7, 1940) is an American actor. He is known for his starring role as Frank Furillo in the television drama Hill Street Blues.

During his teen years, Travanti was an athlete and good student, earning scholarships to Harvard University, Princeton University, and Dartmouth College though he eventually attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

He did co-star in the 1989 cult classic Millennium and as Lt Ray McAuliffe in the 1993 series Missing Persons.
