David Walton


David Walton stars as Will Freeman, who lives a charmed existence on NBC's comedy "About a Boy."

A Boston native, Walton started acting in high school but began his formal training at Brown University. He also studied at the Actor's Center as well as the British American Drama Academy.

Shortly after moving to New York, he was quickly cast in a Naked Angel's production of "One Day on Wall Street." His commendable performance caught the attention of an executive who cast him in the series "Cracking Up," starring alongside Jason Schwartzman, Molly Shannon and Christopher McDonald. Since then, he has starred in several television series, including "The Loop," "Heist," "Quarterlife," and the NBC comedies "100 Questions" and "Perfect Couples."

Walton received great reviews for his star-making turn opposite Amanda Peet in NBC's comedy "Bent," about a recovering gambling addict and womanizer (Walton) and his polar opposite (Peet). Publications from the New York Times to Daily Variety heralded his comedic timing and leading-man charisma.

On the film side, Walton has just wrapped "Think Like a Man Too," joining an all-star ensemble cast in the Sony Screen Gems sequel to the 2012 hit that will open next year. He is also set to star along with Jeremy Sisto in the indie comedy "Break Point." Walton may be best known for his role as the evil boyfriend Dr. Rick in the hit 2009 cult film "Fired Up."

Earlier this year, Walton starred in the ABC's Hallmark Hall of Fame film "The Makeover," opposite Julia Stiles. He also appeared in a multi-episode arc as Zooey Deschanel's love interest on "New Girl."

During his down time, Walton is a golf, tennis, hockey and backgammon addict, and he currently resides in the Los Angeles area with his wife, actress Majandra Delfino, and their two children, Cecilia Delphine and Louis Augustus.
