Darryl McCauley, brother of comedian Dane Cook, has plead guilty to embezzling money from Cook. He was working as Dane Cook’s business manager and had access to his checkbook, which resulted in McCauley writing himself a very large check. Darryl McCauley was sentenced to 6 years. Ironically, one of McCauley’s former occupations was as a corrections officer. He and Dane Cook both shared a mother, the late Donna Cook.

Dane Cook & The Fans
You can learn more about Dane Cook from his own website, DaneCook.com, which also does not make mention of this current controversy. At first glance you will notice it is like any other celebrity site, featuring tour information and the occasional updated blog from the celebrity to their fans. News, photos, and a way to directly e-mail Dane Cook are also features of his website. Close connection and loyalty with fans has always been a signature characteristic of the comedian/actor. His approachability has surely lent itself to his huge fame and success.
If Dane Cook was mistaken to trust his own brother, we can only wonder if this will cause Cook to reexamine all his relationships, including that of the closeness he has sometimes expressed or implied with his fans. Could this situation hurt the future of fans’ interactions and access to Dane Cook? An unfortunate side effect, but perhaps all for the best in the protection of one of their favorite entertainers, who has learned a hard lesson about being taken advantage of.
