With leading man and charismatic charm that translates on the big screen, TV and stage, David Boreanaz is a force to be reckoned with and has continued to earn rave reviews for his work on BONES. In addition to his starring role on the show, he is also a producer but often pulls triple duty as director, directing the series’ 100th episode, as well as the cliffhanger finale episodes for the last three seasons, among others.


In May of 2014 exclaimed that the season nine finale was “an explosive, edge-of-your-seat firefight (excellently directed by series star David Boreanaz).”


In addition to BONES, Boreanaz was recently seen in the ensemble drama “Full Circle.” The 10-episode series marked the TV debut of screenwriter/playwright Neil LaBute.


On the big screen, Boreanaz’s credits include the independent sports drama “The Mighty Macs” opposite Carla Gugino, the suspense drama “Officer Down,” the independent black comedy “Suffering Man’s Charity,” “These Girls” which premiered at the 2005 Toronto Film Festival, “Valentine,” “The Crow” opposite Dennis Hopper and “The Hard Easy” opposite Bruce Dern and Vera Farmiga.  He also lent his voice to the role of “Hal Jordan” (aka “The Green Lantern”) for the animated feature “Justice League: The New Frontier.”


While relatively new to acting when he landed a guest-starring role on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” Boreanaz vaulted to stardom as the mysterious and tortured “Angel” on the series. He continued the role in his own series, “Angel.”


Boreanaz was exposed 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).


On stage, Boreanaz starred in the Off-Broadway production of “Spalding Gray: Stories Left to Tell.” He has performed at the Ensemble Theater in “Hat Full of Rain”; at the Gardner Stage in “Italian-American Reconciliation” and “Fool for Love”; and in “Cowboy Mouth.”


Additional directing credits include episodes of “Angel” and “The Finder.”


Boreanaz is an avid hockey player, and lives in Los Angeles with his family.
