Daniel Peter Masterson (born March 13, 1976) is an American actor and disc jockey. Masterson played the roles of Steven Hyde in The ’70s Show (1998-2006), Milo Foster in Men at Work (2012-2014), and Jameson “Rooter” Bennett in The Ranch (2016-2018). On June 17, 2020, he was arrested and charged with four counts of sexual assault.
In March 2017, four women filed sexual assault allegations against Masterson, prompting a Los Angeles Police Department investigation. Masterson, though his agent, has denied the allegations. In response to the accusations, Netflix fired Masterson from its comedy series The Ranch on December 5, 2017, saying in a statement, “Yesterday was his last day on the show, and production will resume in early 2018 without him.”
On June 17, 2020, Masterson was charged with raping a 23-year-old woman in 2001, a 28-year-old woman in early 2003, and a 23-year-old woman in late 2003. The three counts come after a three-year investigation beginning in 2017. If convicted, Masterson faces up to 45 years in prison.
