Mini Bio (1)

A series regular on many TV comedies and dramas, David has also worked for Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Paul Greengrass, Shawn Levy, Robert Zemeckis, Michael Patrick King, Gary Winick, George Nolfi and more. He's flirted with Julia Roberts, stolen Tom Cruise's wife, berated Brooke Shields, married (and divorced) Debra Messing, and snubbed Sarah Jessica and Mr. Big. But don't let his screen credits fool you: he's a trained theatre actor with serious on-stage chops. He and the legendary Eli Wallach did a smash hit two-character play in New York, playing eight shows a week for over a year. And his memorable star turn in the powerful play "SnakeBit" had the NY Times saying "Basche is sensational in the role, a brash and sensitive bull-in-a-psychic-china shop."

Recently he starred in and produced two feature films, "Egg" with Christina Hendricks, Anna Camp, Gbenga Akinnagbe and Alysia Reiner, and "Equity" the Sony Pictures Classics hit Wall Street thriller with Anna Gunn and James Purefoy. Basche starred in TV Land's "The Exes" for 5 years with Donald Faison and Wayne Knight, and pops up on your TV regularly in shows like "Blacklist," "Blue Bloods," "NCIS: New Orleans" and more.

David is also an outspoken environmentalist - he and his wife, Actress Alysia Reiner, recently used their own home as a way to share information about building green. Their brownstone renovation in Harlem was featured on TV's "World's Greenest Homes" and "Renovation Nation"; in various magazines like Dwell, Gotham, and The Nest; and they allowed the environmentally friendly construction process to be chronicled on web sites such as Dwell.com and Kohler.com. David is involved with many charities including The Cancer Support Community, Habitat for Humanity, Our Time Theatre Company, Actors for Autism, and the Joyful Heart Foundation.
