Producer and Director - two new hats that David wears well! Along with his wife, actress Alysia Reiner ("Fig" from OITNB), he heled produce the hit feature film "EQUITY," bought by Sony Pictures Classics at the Sundance Film Festival before it even premiered. "EQUITY" was in theaters nationwide, and David appears alongside Alysia, Anna Gunn, Carrie Preston and James Purefoy. Along with directing content for TV Land and various charity campaigns, David has now apprenticed TV directors on shows like "Scream Queens," "Scorpion," and "Grace & Frankie." He hopes to direct the short film "Father Alvin" this Fall.
David starred for 4 seasons on the hit sitcom "The Exes" on TV Land with Wayne Night and Donald Faison, and you've probably seen him on “Elementary," "Blindspot," “Chicago PD," "NCIS: New Orleans" and more lately.
He also starred as Debra Messing's despicable ex-husband/movie producer/asshole in the hit series "The Starter Wife" on USA, while simultaneously appearing on his second season of the drama "Lipstick Jungle" on NBC. David starred for two seasons on NBC’s "Three Sisters," and in Alan Ball’s series "Oh Grow Up" on ABC. He played Wilbur in Fox's ill-fated remake of "Mr. Ed,” was a villainous constitutional scholar on the 20th and final season opener of "Law & Order," a wonderfully creepy rapist on "L&O: Criminal Intent,” and a crooked Congressman on “White Collar.” He’s also somewhat notorious for doing “the crab” on the floor for Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin in “30 Rock.”
He’s had recurring roles on "Frasier," "Miss Match," and “Rescue Me,” and other television credits include "CSI:Miami" (their very first villain!), “Royal Pains,” all of the "Law & Order" shows, "Ed," "The Division," “Player$,” "As The World Turns," and "All My Children." David has been the voice of many ads and products, including NOKIA, GHI Health Care, Marriott and LOVELY, the fragrance from Sarah Jessica Parker.
In films, David can be seen calling the title fight for Hugh Jackman in “Real Steel” and breaking down doors all over New York chasing Matt Damon in “The Adjustment Bureau.” He stole Tom Cruise’s wife in Steven Spielberg’s “War of the Worlds,” and was caught flirting with Julia Roberts in Steven Soderbergh’s film "Full Frontal." David portrayed passenger Todd Beamer (famous for his last words of “let’s roll”) in Universal’s Oscar winning film “UNITED 93.” He starred with Molly Shannon in “The Wedding Weekend” and starred in the Emmy Nominated Showtime film "Carry Me Home.” He also leads a fun cast in the indie film "I'll Believe You" with Ed Helms, Fred Willard, Chris Elliot, and Patrick Warburton.
Yes yes yes he loves the theater, too! On stage, two of his most notable performances were starring in the Naked Angels production of the Drama Desk Nominated play “SnakeBit,” and performing for over a year with Eli Wallach in the original New York production of the two character play “Visiting Mr. Green.” Regional appearances include Williamstown, Hartford Stage, New Jersey Shakespeare, Rhode Island Playwright’s Theatre, Iowa Shakespeare, Hartford Theatre Works, the Yale School of Drama Cabaret, the Boston Majestic Theatre, and the White River Theatre Festival.
David is also an outspoken environmentalist, and has been featured on TV's "World's Greenest Homes" and "Renovation Nation," as well as in various magazines like Dwell, Gotham, and The Nest. He's involved with many charities including The Cancer Support Community, SAY: Stuttering Association for the Young, Actors for Autism, and Cycle For Survival.
