SIX DAYS, SEVEN NIGHTS
In the debut season (1994-95) of "Friends," DAVID
SCHWIMMER (Frank Martin), for his performance as Ross, a sensitive,
hopeless romantic, earned an Emmy Award® nomination
as Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.
After his graduation from high school, he attended Northwestern
University, where he received a BS degree in speech/theatre. In
1988, Schwimmer, along with seven other Northwestern graduates,
founded Chicago's Lookingglass Theatre Company -- an ensemble
of actors, writers, directors, and designers dedicated to creating
vibrant new works for the American stage. Schwimmer says the company,
which is now 20 members strong, "possesses a unique combination
of talent, drawing its strength from training in the classics,
acrobatics, gymnastic, dance and music."
A tour of their production of "The Arabian Nights" brought
Schwimmer and the Lookingglass Theater Company to Los Angeles,
where the show garnered 22 Drama-Logue awards. This summer,
Schwimmer will star in "The Idiot" in Chicago with the
company. His stage acting credits with Lookingglass include "The
Master and Margarita," "In the Eye of the Beholder,"
"West," "Of One Blood," and "The Odyssey."
He also starred on the Los Angeles stage as a devious screenwriter
in the hit play "D Girl." His stage directing credits
include "The Jungle," which he also adapted and which
earned six Joseph Jefferson Awards, "The Serpent," and
"Alice in Wonderland," which toured to the Edinburgh
Festival in Scotland.
In 1993, Schwimmer made his debut as a television series regular
on the comedy "Monty," with Henry Winkler. His other
TV credits include recurring roles on such series as "NYPD
Blue," "L.A. Law," and "The Wonder Years."
Schwimmer was recently seen in Universal's "Kissing a Fool,"
and will be seen this fall in Sony Pictures' "Apt Pupil,"
adapted from a Steven King novella and directed by Bryan Singer.
His other feature film acting credits include "The Pallbearer,"
"Twenty Bucks," "Crossing the Bridge," and
"Since You've Been Gone," which he directed and stars
in with his pals from the Lookingglass Theater Company. Schwimmer
also co-starred with Chris Cooper in HBO's "Breast Men."
