With over 150 film, television and stage credits to his name, Keith David continues to exemplify the character of Hollywood's greatest actors with a humble, un-trying ability to remain in demand.
2014 brings David back to the small screen in the Fox comedy Enlisted, an irreverent and heartfelt show about three brothers on a small Florida Army post and the group of misfits who surround them. David stars as Command Sergeant Major Donald Cody, a firm but fair man who made a promise to the brother's late father to look out for them.
Some of his dozens of on-screen feature film roles include Oliver Stone's Academy Award-winning Platoon; Clint Eastwood's Bird; and Paul Haggis' Academy Award-winning Crash, as well as There's Something About Mary; Armageddon; Pitch Black; The Chronicles of Riddick; Requiem for a Dream; Mr. and Mrs. Smith; and Barbershop and last years Cloud Atlas based on the best selling novel.
Noted for his deep, commanding voice, another dimension of Keith's career holds him as an Emmy winning voice over artist. Internationally known as the voice behind "Goliath" from Gargoyles and the title character in the Spawn animated series, he provided the voice for "Vhailor" in the video game Planescape: Torment and "The Arbiter" for Halo 2, and the wildly popular "Call To Duty: Modern Warfare 2". Other voiceover credits include the A&E cable series City Confidential and the U.S. Navy television commercials.
Keith's strong working relationship with Ken Burns made him the narrative voice for three of Ken's epic documentaries. Last year the segment "A Necessary War" from Burns' miniseries The War, earned David an Emmy® award to add to his first, previously won for Unforgivable Blackness: The Rise and Fall of Jack Johnson. The miniseries Jazz also earned David an Emmy nomination. Keith's also lent his voice to Coraline and Disney's Princess and The Frog, released in December 2009.
As a native New Yorker, Mr. David has extensive stage experience. His studies in voice and theater at the prestigious Juilliard School of Drama garnered him a 1992 Tony® Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor in a Musical for his role in the classic Broadway play "Jelly's Last Jam". Some additional stage credits are: Sarah Pia Anderson's revival of Hedda Gabler, and Lloyd Richards' original Broadway staging of the late August Wilson's Seven Guitars.
As if all of this wasn't enough, Keith David is also an accomplished singer/songwriter with his own band. Keith has drafted some of today's top producers and most popular performers to join him on his debut album. He is currently performing with symphonies and orchestras across the country
