With a quiet intensity that plays well on both the small and big screen, David Boreanaz has continued to earn rave reviews for his work on BONES. In addition to his starring role, he is also one of the series’ directors, most recently directing last season’s cliffhanger finale episode.
Boreanaz recently wrapped production on the upcoming feature drama “Officer Down,” alongside Stephen Dorff, James Woods and Dominic Purcell. He was seen on the big screen opposite Carla Gugino and Ellen Burstyn in the independent sports drama, “The Mighty Macs.” The film tells the story of the women’s basketball team at Immaculata College, and how they turned their losing squad into national champions.
In addition to voicing the role of “Hal Jordan” (aka “The Green Lantern”) on the animated feature “Justice League: The New Frontier,” Boreanaz starred opposite Anne Heche in Alan Cumming’s independent black comedy “Suffering Man’s Charity,” which premiered at the South by Southwest Film Festival.
Boreanaz was introduced to the TV business at a young age, as the son of a veteran weather forecaster for WPVI in Philadelphia. After graduating from Ithaca College, he moved to Los Angeles to try his luck in Hollywood. He got his first break with a guest spot on “Married With Children,” as the biker boyfriend of “Kelly Bundy” (Christina Applegate). When he landed a guest-starring role on the series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” Boreanaz vaulted to stardom as the mysterious and tortured character, “Angel,” who continued in his own spin-off series.
On stage, Boreanaz starred in the Off-Broadway production of “Spalding Gray: Stories Left to Tell.” He has also performed in “Hat Full of Rain” at the Ensemble Theatre; “Italian-American Reconciliation” and “Fool for Love” at the Gardner Stage; and “Cowboy Mouth.”
Boreanaz is an avid hockey player, and lives in Los Angeles with his family.
