DAVID SCHWIMMER (Melman the Giraffe) is best known for his starring role on the television series "Friends,” for which he earned an Emmy nomination. Schwimmer also shared in six consecutive Screen Actors Guild Award nominations for Outstanding Ensemble in a Comedy Series for his work on "Friends.” Schwimmer's film credits include Mike Figgis' "Hotel,” Ivan Reitman's "Six Days, Seven Nights,” Bryan Singer's "Apt Pupil,” Doug Ellin's "Kissing a Fool” and Matt Reeves' "The Pallbearer.” Additionally, "Duane Hopwood,” the independent feature in which Schwimmer stars as the title character, premiered to rave reviews at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival.

For television, Schwimmer has appeared in Jon Avnet's "Uprising,” and the HBO projects "Band of Brothers” and "Breast Men.” He earlier had recurring roles on the series "NYPD Blue,” "L.A.

In addition, Schwimmer starred in the premieres of Roger Kumble's "D Girl” and "Turnaround” in Los Angeles, and Warren Leight's "Glimmer Brothers” in Williamstown.
