Character: Keith Hunter Jesperson
David Arquette is an actor, writer, director, and producer who’s unique sensibility makes him one of the most versatile talents working in the entertainment industry today able to segue from comedy to drama with extraordinary ease. This makes David Arquette extremely uncomfortable because of the fact that he is writing this bio himself and it seems arrogant to boast about his incredible talents in such a way while also referring to himself in the 3rd person.
In 1997, he (I) was discovered at Sundance for his (my) role in JOHNS. Since that time, he (you get it) has acted in dozens of feature films, including the “Scream” films, “Hamlet 2,” “The Grey Zone,” “Wild Bill,” “Stealing Sinatra,” “Never Been Kissed,” “Ravenous,” “Dream with the Fishes,” “Never Die Alone” and “The Darwin Awards.”
Arquette has completed production on the independent feature “Orion,” opposite Lily Cole and Goran Kostic, portraying a hunter who is fighting his way through a futuristic wasteland in search of his brother and has joined the cast of the action film “Chuck Hank” and the “San Diego Twins” alongside Paz de la Huerta and Tojan Bellisario.
Arquette will next be seen in “The Field of Lost Shoes,” opposite Lauren Holly, Tom Skerritt and Nolan Gould.
Last year, Arquette was seen in Sony’s streaming video entertainment network’s “Cleaners,” a series of six half-hour episodes revolving around two young femme contract killers who become the targets of an FBI probe. The series also stars Emanuelle Chriqui, Missi Pyle, Emily Osment and Clifton Collins, Jr., as well as a Sundance Channel unscripted series “Dream School” about 15 troubled students ages 17-18, who have either been expelled or dropped out of the conventional school system, a once in a lifetime chance to learn skills first-hand from an impressive list of innovators and leaders. Others featured in the series are Academy Award winning-filmmaker Oliver Stone, musician Swizz Beatz, TV Journalist Soledad O’Brien and financial Guru Suze Orman, among others.
In 2011, Arquette reprised his role as “Deputy ‘Dewey’ Riley” in the much anticipated fourth installment of the “Scream” films and joined the cast of the Disney Television interactive series “Jake and the Never Land Pirates” where he lends his voice as Scully, a lookout pirate parrot who helps Jake and his crew of kid pirates.
In January 2003, Arquette formed a production company, Coquette Productions, with Courteney Cox. Through their company, Arquette wrote and produced his directorial debut, “The Tripper” (it was a big hit in Amsterdam) and “The Butlers in Love” (a 3D short film), which he serves as executive producer and director. Also under the Coquette banner, Arquette produced the FX drama, “Dirt” and ABC’s “Cougar Town,” with Bill Lawrence and which Arquette executive produces with Cox, also starring. Up next, Arquette will direct the 3D psychological thriller “Glutton” for Remember Dreaming Productions and will executive produce through Coquette.
I'd (David) like to thank you for taking the time to read this ridicules amount of hogwash. The fact of the matter is, I'm a forth generation performer and love entertaining people. Thank you for giving me that opportunity.
Arquette currently lives in Los Angeles.
