Biography

Supporting player David Alan Basche did some of his earliest work on the small screen, with guest appearances on such smash series as Law & Order, Frasier, and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. He broke through to full acclaim, however, not on television but on the big screen -- by essaying the role of Todd Beamer, one of the more famous victims of September 11th Flight 93, in Paul Greengrass' Oscar-winning docudrama United 93 (2006). Basche then signed for the lead in the much different I'll Believe You (2007) -- a comedy drama about a hick-town radio host who picks up signs of extraterrestrial activity via an on-air distress signal. Basche's next project involved taking a regular supporting role in the Brooke Shields-headlined prime-time drama Lipstick Jungle -- a Sex and the City-style romp (from the same author, Candace Bushnell) that traces the vicissitudes in the lives of New York's "Three Most Powerful Women." In 2011 he appeared in The Adjustment Bureau. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
