David Alan Basche
has worked with directors like Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Paul Greengrass, Shawn Levy, Robert Zemeckis, and Michael Patrick King, among others. You might know him from his 5 seasons playing the lead role of the hilariously neurotic dentist Dr. Stuart Gardner on “The Exes” on TV Land.
You’ve also seen him in TV shows like “Lipstick Jungle,” “The Starter Wife,” “Bull,” “Bluff City Law,” “NCIS: New Orleans,” “Elementary,” “Person of Interest,” “CSI: Miami” (he was their very first villain!), “Blue Bloods,” “Chicago PD,” “Blindspot” and many more. He’s also somewhat notorious for doing “the crab” on the floor for Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin in “30 Rock.”
In films, David called the title fight with Hugh Jackman and a 12 foot robot, chased Matt Damon all over New York City, stole Tom Cruise’s wife, flirted with Julia Roberts, married and divorced Debra Messing, and portrayed passenger Todd Beamer (famous for his last words of “let’s roll”) in Universal’s Oscar winning film “United 93.”
You can now see David in the film “EGG,” a comedy he made with his wife, actress Alysia Reiner. It’s available on iTunes, Amazon, Hulu, etc – they produced it together and starred in it together, and somehow despite that they stayed married.
