BIOGRAPHY

David is one of a handful of actors who can "do it all." He's been a series regular on many TV comedies and dramas, but 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. For example, 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."

Basche stars in season 3 of TV Land's "The Exes," playing the needy and newly-single Stuart, who moves into an apartment with Phil (Donald Faison) and Haskell (Wayne Knight) right across the hall from his divorce attorney Holly (Kristen Johnston).

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, and Actors for Autism.
