David hasn’t been active in the film industry since 2018 and some people believe that he might have retired from acting, while others claim that he is simply taking a break from his career.
Early life and education
David was raised in Pittsburgh alongside his two older brother, by their mother Margaret Clement Conrad who was a librarian, and their father James Watson Conrad who was an engineer.
David attended Swissvale High School for a year, where he first became interested in acting, and then switched to The Kiski School when he was awarded a scholarship.
He was interested in playing football, performing in school plays and learning how to play the guitar. Upon matriculation in 1985, David enrolled at Brown University to study history, but quit college before graduation – while on his way up in the film industry, David worked multiple jobs to financially support himself, such as being a carpenter, a housepainter and a barista. He saved some money and enrolled at the prestigious Juilliard School in New York, but quit during his final year so that he could appear in the gothic fantasy horror movie “Snow White: A Tale of Terror”.
Roles in movies
David made his debut movie appearance in 1993 when he portrayed a vampire in the independent horror film “Darkness: The Vampire Version”, which was both written and directed by Leif Jonker, and starred Gary Miller, Michael Gisick and Randall Aviks – the story follows a man who goes to fight the undead after his small city is attacked by vampires.
In 1996, David played Simon in the drama “Under Heat”, and then gained recognition in 1998 after portraying the supporting character Tony Croft in the thriller movie “Return to Paradise”.
In 1999 he starred as Lyle in “The Weekend”, but the movie failed to attract much attention. The following year he was invited to appear as Captain Hanks in the critically acclaimed drama movie “Men of Honor”, which starred Robert De Niro and follows the true story of Master Chief Petty Officer Carl Brashear, who was the first African American to become a master diver in the US Navy.
The year 2003 saw David appear in the romantic comedy movie “Anything Else” which was directed by Woody Allen and starred Danny DeVito, Jimmy Fallon and Stockard Channing. Some of his following roles were in the romantic comedy “Wedding Crashers” and the comedy “Dumpster” both in 2005, and the independent biographical musical “Crazy” in 2007.
Three of David’s most recent roles in movies have been in “Follow the Prophet” in 2009, the drama “About Sunny” in 2011, and the documentary “Undaunted: The Forgotten Giants of the Allegheny Observatory”, which he narrated in 2012.
David prefers to act in theatre plays over movies and TV series, and has appeared in numerous since the launch of his acting career – he even turned down invitations for auditions for “Boogie Nights” and “Deep Impact” as he prefered to appear on stage.
Roles in TV series
David made his debut TV series appearance in 1996, when he was cast to play the lead character Leo Roth in the romantic comedy “Relativity”, which also starred Kimberly Williams-Paisley and Jane Adams and is about two Americans who meet in Italy and fall in love.
In 2000, David portrayed the supporting character Daniel Pierce in five episodes of the science fiction series “Roswell”, and two years later starred in the pilot episode of the science fiction series “The Time Tunnel”, but which failed to be picked up by a network – he also starred in the pilot episode of the crime series “L. A. Confidential” in 2003, which likewise failed to be picked up by a network.
David played another supporting role in the drama “Boston Public”, and was then invited to portray the lead character Michael Mendelson in the comedy series “Miss Match”, which was created by Darren Star and Jeff Rake. In 2005, he guest starred in the episode “DNR” of the medical drama “House” and then appeared in single episodes of several series, such as the police procedural drama “CSI: Miami” in 2010, the legal and political drama “The Good Wife” in 2011, and the Canadian-American one-hour legal thriller series “The Firm” in 2012.
Three of his most recent roles in TV series have been in the episode “Internal Affairs” of the crime drama “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” in 2013, an unsold TV pilot of “The Curse of the Fuentes Women” in 2015, and the episode “At Close Range” of the crime comedy series “Castle” in 2015 as well.
Is he married?
There have been rumors circulating the internet about how David might have married in the mid-2010s, but these haven’t been confirmed and the popular actor currently appears to be single, he hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
He started dating the American actress Amanda Tosch in 2006 after they met at a party organized by their mutual friend – Amanda is today perhaps best known for her roles in “Guess Who”, “Get Smart’s Bruce and Lloyd Out of Control” and “Prison Break”. They dated for around a year before splitting ways for unknown reasons, and two years later David began dating Storm Large, an American singer, author and actress who is today perhaps best known for having competed in the reality TV show “Rock Star: Supernova”. The two spent several months together before breaking-up, again for reasons unknown.

He likes to listen to Sting and has been to several of his concerts, while his favorite song is “Desert Rose”.
David is interested in photography, and some of the pictures taken by him can be seen uploaded onto his Instagram account.
He is a lover of animals, but doesn’t have a pet because he travels often and wouldn’t want to have to take his dog (or cat) everywhere with him.
