THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG

KEITH DAVID (Dr. Facilier) continues to exemplify the character of Hollywood's greatest actors with a humble, untrying ability to remain in demand, with more than 150 film, television and stage credits to his name.

Some of his dozens of onscreen feature-film roles include Oliver Stone's Academy Award®-winning "Platoon,” Clint Eastwood's "Bird,” and Paul Haggis' Academy Award®-winning "Crash,” as well as "There's Something About Mary,” "Armageddon,” "Pitch Black,” "The Chronicles of Riddick,” "Requiem for a Dream,” "Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” and "Barbershop.”

On television, some of David's numerous acting credits are guest arcs on "ER” and "Seventh Heaven,” appearances on "Law & Order” and "CSI,” and LeVar Burton's telefilm "The Tiger Woods Story,” for which he received an Emmy Award® nomination.

Noted for his deep, commanding voice, another dimension of David's career is as an Emmy®-winning voiceover artist, internationally known as the voice behind "Goliath” from "Gargoyles,” and the title character in the "Spawn” animated series. He provided the voice for "Vhailor” in the video game "Planescape: Torment” and "The Arbiter” for Halo 2. Other voiceover credits include the A&E cable series "City Confidential” and the U.S. Navy television commercials.

David's strong working relationship with Ken Burns made him the narrative voice for three of Burns' epic documentaries. The segment "A Necessary War” from Burns' miniseries "The War” earned David an Emmy Award® to add to his first, won for "Unforgivable Blackness: The Rise and Fall of Jack Johnson.” The miniseries "Jazz” also earned David an Emmy® nomination.

In addition, he is the voice behind the character of "The Black Cat” in the Focus Features adaptation of the book "Coraline.”

A native New Yorker, David has extensive stage experience. His studies in voice and theater at the prestigious Juilliard School of Drama garnered him a 1992 Tony® Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor in a Musical for his role in the classic Broadway play "Jelly's Last Jam.” His stage credits also include Sarah Pia Anderson's revival of "Hedda Gabler” and Lloyd Richards' original Broadway staging of the late August Wilson's "Seven Guitars.”

Also an accomplished singer/songwriter with his own band, David has drafted some of today's top producers and most popular performers to join him on his debut album. The album features both traditional jazz and his personalized brand of a hip-hop/jazz hybrid.

Currently, David is the new voice of Smooth Jazz, 94.7 The WAVE, the Original Smooth Jazz radio station in Los Angeles, and streaming worldwide. David also stars in the title role of Rock Capital Films' "Pastor Brown.”
