Born in Saint Paul, Minnesota, Dale attended Cretin-Derham Hall High School where he was a standout baseball player and also first discovered acting. His father Jack Dale, who is of English and French descent, played ice hockey for the Minnesota Golden Gophers and made the national team for the 1968 Winter Olympics. His mother is Japanese and immigrated to the United States from Kobe as a teenager.
Dale attended St. Mary's University in Winona, Minnesota where he studied stage and theatre and then moved to Madison, Wisconsin, graduating from the University of Wisconsin–Madison. During his first several years in Los Angeles, he worked as a carpenter building sets to make ends meet while taking acting classes and auditioning for roles.
In 2004, Dale appeared in the film Mr. 3000 as "Fukuda", alongside Bernie Mac, Angela Bassett and Chris Noth. His next movie role was in 2007's The Bucket List as an instructor to Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman's characters in one of the scenes.

In 2010, he also portrayed Scorpion in the short film of Mortal Kombat: Rebirth on YouTube. The film paved way for a web series, Mortal Kombat: Legacy, in which Dale reprised his role.
