David Kaufman


DAVID KAUFMAN began acting at a young age in his hometown of St. Louis, Missouri, when his kindergarten teacher handed him the plum lead role of Santa Claus in the class Christmas play. He is the oldest of two brothers, a sister, a step-brother and a step-sister.

At 18, he set out from St. Louis to attend UCLA's Department of Theatre Arts. Since that time, he has studied and worked extensively as a professional actor in films and television, including regular roles on such television series as DOWN TO EARTH(TBS), DWEEBS (CBS) and most recently PRESIDIO MED (CBS); guest-starring roles on such series as BOSTON LEGAL, ER, STARGATE: SG-1, THE WEST WING and CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION; and feature films including PEARL HARBOR, ENCHANTED, ROLE OF A LIFETIME and the upcoming musical RED RIDING HOOD (directed by Randal Kleiser). Other film work includes the HBO's FROM THE EARTH TO THE MOON (produced by Tom Hanks), THE LAST PROSTITUTE (starring with Sonia Braga), and KIDS LIKE THESE (starring with Tyne Daly and the late Richard Crenna).

He has done dozens of national commercials, including memorable campaigns for AT&T (starring with the late Ray Walston), Pepsi (starring with Cindy Crawford), Blockbuster (starring with Magic Johnson), as well as spots for Honda, Maxwell House, Dentyne, Chili's, Midas, Wendy's, Twiglets and British Petroleum, among others.

David has lent his voice to several well-known animated series, including SUPERMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES and STEVEN SPIELBERG PRESENTS FREAKAZOID!, as well as filling in for Michael J. Fox in both the roles of Marty McFly on BACK TO THE FUTURE: THE ANIMATED SERIES and Stuart Little in HBO's STUART LITTLE: THE ANIMATED SERIES. Currently, he is starring as animation's newest superhero in Nickelodeon's hit series DANNY PHANTOM, as well as egomaniacal Aldrin Pesky on Disney's THE BUZZ ON MAGGIE.

David has an extensive list of stage credits and has been a member of the West Coast Ensemble in Los Angeles for over ten years, performing such varied roles as Prosecutor Gilmer in TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, George Lewis in Kaufman and Hart's ONCE IN A LIFETIME, Orestes in ELECTRA, Tyler in Sondheim and Furth's MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG, Ronnie Shaughnessy in THE HOUSE OF BLUE LEAVES, Callimaco in Machiavelli's THE MANDRAKE and Eugene Jerome in Neil Simon's BILOXI BLUES, as well as Paul Palmer in James Duff's A QUARREL OF SPARROWS at The Court Theatre in Los Angeles and Stewie in the premiere of Richard Greenberg's NIGHT AND HER STARS at South Coast Repertory. His stage work has earned him several Los Angeles area critics' awards and nominations.

In his leisure time he loves to travel, read and play games - he is an avid poker player. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, actress Lisa Picotte, and their daughter Gracie.
