David Boreanaz

While relatively new to the world of acting when he landed a guest-starring role on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, David Boreanaz catapulted to stardom with his quiet intensity as the mysterious and tortured Angel and ultimately landed his own series. During his summer hiatus, Boreanaz completed production on The Crow: Wicked Prayer, the fourth installment of the horror series, also starring Dennis Hopper, Edward Furlong, Tara Reid and Macy Gray. A native of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Boreanaz was exposed to television at a young age - his father is a veteran weather forecaster for WPVI in Philadelphia. After graduating from Ithaca College, he moved to Los Angeles to try his luck in Hollywood. While studying the craft of acting, Boreanaz lived the life of a starving actor, making ends meet by parking cars, painting houses and handing out towels at a sports club. Yet, it was while walking his dog in a Hollywood neighborhood that a manager spotted his brooding, intense look and instantly signed him as a client. His first big break was a guest spot on Married... with Children playing Kelly Bundy's (Christina Applegate) biker boyfriend. Boreanaz recently starred in the romantic comedy I'm With Lucy co-starring with Monica Potter, Henry Thomas and Anthony LaPaglia. He also starred in the Warner Bros. thriller film Valentine. On stage, Boreanaz has performed at the Ensemble Theatre in Hat Full of Rain, at the Gardner Stage in Italian-American Reconciliation and Fool for Love, and on theatre row in Cowboy Mouth. His feature film credits include Aspen Extreme and Best of the Best 2.

An avid golfer and traveler, Boreanaz, his wife, actress Jaime Bergman, and their one-year-old son, Jaden Rayne, live in Los Angeles, California.

Cumming in Boreanaz's Directorial Debut

The Winnipeg Sun chatted with Son of the Mask star Alan Cumming who says that he's got a role in the new film from former Angel star David Boreanaz.

"It's called Suffering Man's Charity and it would mark the feature film directing debut of David Boreanaz. I'd get to play this crazy music teacher for the vampire," he says of Boreanaz.

There was talk he'd play a gay cabaret actor who coaches a rugby team to victory in Coming Out, but he says that project is "in some kind of limbo.

"Catherine-Zeta Jones is producing through her company and also wanted to star, but I don't know if that one is ever going to get made. I haven't heard anything from Catherine for a while now."

David Boreanaz: Interview with the Vampire

David 'Angel' Boreanaz got talking to Phase9 about the possibilties of anything 'Angel' in the near future. Not surprisingly, he staked any chance of a tube offering.

"There won’t be a series. If anything it would have to be a big screen feature as far as getting me back involved into playing this character again for raising the bar and the level to where it has to be. I think going back and doing an extended series on it or something to further it maybe a little bit longer would most probably jeopardise it or maybe even taint it in a way that may hurt it. And I won’t want to do that", he says. "I mean unfortunately for the fans at the same time the door was so left wide open the way they ended this season and this show I think was a great way".

Instead, says Boreanaz, he's working on a few non-vampiric projects. "I just did, I’ve done 3 movies so far. I’ve done a romantic comedy with Alana and Paul Sorvino. It’s called "Mr Fix It". Then I did a film called "The Hard Easy" with Bruce Dern and Vera Farmiga". He adds, "Peter Weller was in it. I play a neurotic stockbroker who is out 4 million dollars and is selling bonds to diamond heists. And I’m working on a film called "These Girs" with Caroline Dhavernas. I don’t know if you know her. She’s a very talented actress. I play a stoner kind of guy. It a black comedy".

Boreanaz also added that ABC has picked up his new series about the life of undercover hit man Jack Ballantine.

David Boreanaz: Past, Present, Future

Shortly after filming wrapped on the last ever episode of Angel, we caught up with David Boreanaz to discuss the end of an era.

What was going through your mind during your last day on set?

Of course, it's going to be emotional; you spend so much time with the crew, and you're so close to them, and my father was there, my family was there. And it all came to a final close in the middle of an alleyway at five in the morning.

It was emotional, but it was a good thing.

Did you keep any souvenirs from the show?

Well, I got a couple of shirts... just odds and ends, nothing major. There wasn't really much I wanted.

Will you miss any of your Angel outfits?

Some I will not, some probably, but you get bought some nice things when you work in this business.

Any truth in the current rumours that several TV movies are being planned for next season on The WB?

Not that I know of. I'm not planning on any kind of reunion with the character unless it's done in a very challenging and big screen way.

Tell us about Soul Purpose, the episode you directed this year.

Well, I always wanted to do that, and I approached [the producers] last season with that. They were kind of like, "yeah, sure." It was not really much to think about. Being around set, on my set, on my show, for four seasons, you see directors come and go, and you learn from them what to do and what not to do.

If anybody knows the show, it would be me, because I'm there every day. To have that opportunity to direct under my belt was fantastic, so I'm glad I did it.

Are there any other current shows you would like to work on as a director?

I like to direct for the big screen. To be honest with you, Angel was very formulaic for me. What I learned was that you have really prescribed specific things that you have to shoot. You don't have the final cut, and that's frustrating.

Did Angel's cancellation mean that the end of this season changed radically?

The writers stuck to the outline of how they were going to end it originally if the show went on for another season. I'm proud that they stuck by their guns and ended it that way, so I'm very pleased with the way the character has gone out this season.

How did your wife Jaime become involved in episode 19, Time Bomb?

It's [was] just an opportunity for a character there. [I thought] that it would be great to have her come on to the show, and have our son look at that, and see the two of us actually play opposite one another for a brief moment. We had fun with it. It was nothing too serious, it was just a small little role, a laugh.

Is there anything that you would like to say to the fans who have been campaigning to keep the show alive?

I think that what they've done has been fantastic. They're the best fans in the world. They have been so supportive [and] I just thank them from the bottom of my heart.

Looking ahead, does typecasting worry you?

I don't know. There's a sense that it's all about timing, it really is. I pretty much have everything mapped out for me. Tom (David's manager) has already done that, so I put my trust in him and let that formula unfold.

I've never really been concerned about being typecast, for me it's just about enjoying my work and being very professional in taking things on. Now that the show has come to its closure here, I look forward to any challenges that are ahead of me with different characters. And I had the opportunity to do that in the past three years with some films, and with some stuff that's coming up that I'm very excited about.

Tell us about your next film, The Crow: Wicked Prayer.

That's another wicked fast-paced film - there are a few film opportunities on my plate now, some offers that I can't confirm, but will be known in the next week or so. Then I might be going over to London do to When Harry Met Sally in September. That's being negotiated just now.

Which of Angel's fleet of cars was your favourite?

His first car was very cool. His first car would be the best. All of his other cars are just too fast, too furious, even though some are classics.

Do you still collect cars?

I had a '66 Mustang, and I had a truck that was stolen, unfortunately, but I do collect cars.

Are you planning any more convention appearances in Europe?

James [Marsters] and I are putting an event together for Halloween weekend that we're really excited about. It's a good opportunity for almost, not a farewell tour, but to say thank you to all the people, especially over in Europe.

I love going over to Europe. I know we're planning on doing that, but that's the only one that we have in the books right now.

Christian Kane speaks highly of you. What's it like working with him?

We have a great time, the two of us have a blast. He's a very good friend of mine, and it's always been a good time with him because we're so close.

Did your knee operation cause you many problems this year?

It was tough at the beginning of the season, because my knee was out of place, but as the time went on it got fixed, and it's fine now.

Any final thoughts about Angel?

I think I had fun with him. We had a good time, and I think we should all be very proud of what we've done.

Not Fade Away, the final episode of Angel, premieres on Sky One at 9pm on Tuesday 8th June 2004.

The vampire with a soul and the star of the show, David Boreanaz

Q: What’s your favourite moment of Angel?

There’s not one in particular that I enjoy over the other. They’re all pretty much in sync with each other.

Being this character is very diverse, there’s different parts of him and personalities that I find in every show.

It’s always fun playing evil Angel or sarcastic, witty Angel. It’s hard to say which one I enjoy more than the other. I really enjoy all of them. They all seem to be somehow interplayed with whatever story Joss or David is trying to tell.

Q: How about the humour of the character?

The best thing about setting him up is seeing him miserably fail, because it is a dark-sided character and his humour really comes [out] if he’s being humiliated or if he’s got icing all over his face.

Then you see his humiliation and you see that fumbley-ness that he has, and that’s humour. I think it’s the way the writers play his character and put him in those certain situations, so it’s dictated by plot and story and movement.

Q: Is the karaoke side of things tough to do?

It’s bad, yeah. I don’t do much of it, so I really couldn’t tell you, but if I did have to sing [properly], it would probably be worse.

Of course, your voice always sounds better in the shower for some reason, maybe it’s just the octaves or, I don’t know, the water, I have no idea. But I can sing a lower, bluesy kind of a note rather than the higher pitched Mandy type of a song. That’s not really my hit.

Q: Are you a Manilow fan?

No, I’m not a big Manilow fan.

Q: Yul Brynner was one of your early influences, wasn’t he?

I guess he was one of the people I looked up to. His conviction, inner strength, his poise and his stature on stage were very powerful when I saw him in The King And I when I was a young kid.

Anyone who’s got passion coming out of his eyes and his heart - and you can see that is pretty powerful - it gave me the inspiration to do that, it looked like a lot of fun.

Q: Were there any jobs you had before getting into acting that you enjoyed?

With any job, I think you have to take away something from what you’re doing.

I don’t want to go back to the days of parking cars or selling gourmet food door to door, but within those confines of work, you learn more about yourself in the days that you’re struggling.

You confront your fears and use them rather than cast them aside, so I think with all the odd jobs I ever had, there was some kind of enlightenment but, yes, a lot of pain and suffering that I don’t want to re-live.

Q: One of your hobbies is restoring old cars, isn’t it?

I don’t restore them, but I’m learning more about old automobiles. I have an old 58 Chevy pickup that I just redid, not myself personally, I just got it done.

That was a two year project that I probably won’t do again because it took too long.

I like old cars, old watches, anything with a vintage, antique kind of a feel to it. I’m just more in tune with that than anything else.

Q: Tell us about working with Julie Benz as Darla

She’s coming back for a bit of an arc in season three, which will find Angel’s character coming to grips with a different side of himself. Julie’s a great person to work with and we have a lot of fun on the set and off camera.

In the shows, we don’t take it too seriously. It’s just a television show, we have fun with it and try to make each other crack up. Most of the time I’m cracking up and screwing up her close ups.

Q: Tell us about the new main villain in Season Three

I know as much as you would, possibly. He’s somebody who’s haunted us for the past 140 years, throughout Europe. As the season progresses I think we’ll show him back in the past, what his relationship is to where he is in the future and where he’s going to end up, trying to hunt us down.

It’s a character that came out of season two, one that Tim Minear wrote. This character developed out of the mind of Tim Minear so I’ll leave the mystery to him, but his name’s Holtz.

Q: I hear that you collect shoes. Is that right?

There are some shoes. I enjoy London’s fashion sense and the clothes and shoes. I’m a big Patrick Cox lover and I just love their fashion, every time I get there I always end up getting shoes and boots in different styles.

It’s not a huge fetish of mine or anything, it’s just something that I like to gather up. Maybe one too many pairs.

David Boreanaz stars in the horror movie ''The Crow''

Dimension Films announced a few straight-to-video outings for some of their darker franchises, including "The Crow: Wicked Prayer", which until now was scheduled to have a theatrical run.

Starring Edward Furlong as the fourth avenger, the story concerns a mad biker who tries to complete a ritual to turn himself into an immortal demon, until his latest victim resuscitates and fights back. David Boreanaz, Dennis Hopper and Tara Reid co-star.

The movie will be accompanied on store shelves by "Hellraiser: Hellworld" and "The Prophecy 4", all out around February 2005.

David Boreanaz co-star in the ''The Hard Easy''

David Boreanaz, Henry Thomas, Vera Farmiga and Bruce Dern will star in The Hard Easy, an independent heist film currently shooting in Los Angeles with Ari Ryan directing. Written by Jon Robert Lindstrom and Tom Schanley, the story centers on two men who attempt to rob a jewelry store on the same day.

The Hollywood Reporter says Boreanaz plays Roger, an unlucky, unethical stock trader and Princeton graduate who agrees to rob the jewelry store with a team in order to cover losses that could put him in jail. Thomas plays Paul, a lowlife gambler who is attempting to do the same thing in an effort to pay off his gambling debts.

Farmiga (Running Scared) will play Dr. Charlie Brooks, an attractive, worldy woman who is trying to get revenge on Paul for her father's death. Dern plays the role of Gene, a former military man who is part of the robbery team.

''Angel'' is back from the dead

With director (and series co-creator and executive producer) Joss Whedon hunched over a small monitor in a cramped corner of the set, the cast and crew of The WB Network's "Angel" begin work on what Whedon's script calls "a big-ass Steadicam shot," which opens the show's fifth season .
For Angel (David Boreanaz), a vampire with a soul, and his motley crew of do-gooding crusaders, it's their first step into a larger world.

Taking full advantage of the newly built set, an expansive suite of offices in downtown Los Angeles -- as evidenced by the fictitious Spring Street address on an envelope at the beginning of the scene -- the camera follows disoriented science-geek Fred (Amy Acker) out of the elevator, where she meets scholarly demon fighter Wesley (Alexis Denisof). They're joined by Fred's new assistant, Knox (Jonathan M. Woodward), who whisks her off upstairs, while Wesley grabs a basketball tossed by vampire hunter Gunn (J. August Richards).

They tour their offices, then return to the lobby, where they're passed by flamboyant demon Lorne (Andy Hallett), nattering away on his cell phone. Angel appears from the same elevator as Fred, meets up with Gunn and Wesley, then heads into his huge, minimalist office.
"I won the bet on that one," Acker says. "I guessed 27 takes, and I got the closest without going over. It was 28. We finished it before lunch, so it only took like five hours."

"Was it 28?" Boreanaz asks. "I thought it was going to be at least 42. It's where we're at, as far as the show is concerned and where our new environment is at. It was a cool shot."

The shot is indeed cool and sleek and unlike anything seen on "Angel" before, as befits a show with a fresh concept and a new lease on life. Teetering on the brink of cancellation last spring, the "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" spinoff managed to earn a fall berth and officially outlive the show that spawned it.

After keeping busy with "Buffy" and Fox's short-lived "Firefly" last year, Whedon is now helping to fill a void left by the departures of co-creator David Greenwalt (now doing UPN's "Jake 2.0," "Angel's" time-slot competition) and executive producer Tim Minear, who wrote the "Angel" season finale, then signed onto FOX's midseason drama "Wonderfalls."

Coming over from "Buffy" is writer David Fury, who is co-executive producer with Jeff Bell, who stepped up last year when Greenwalt left and Minear was pulled away on "Firefly."

"Life was full last year," Bell says. "Now we have a little more help, and life is beautiful."

Many factors contributed to the renewal of "Angel," including cost, the end of "Buffy," and the possible addition of "Buffy" cast members.

James Marsters, who played the vampire Spike on "Buffy," joined "Angel" for the full season, bringing much plot baggage. Angel turned Spike into a vampire, both now have souls, and both have had love affairs with Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar), whom producers hope will guest-star in February or May 2004.

"Buffy" star Alyson Hannigan has already guest-starred on "Angel," and as she's engaged to Denisof, expect to see witch Willow drop by. Signed for 17 of 22 episodes is Mercedes McNab, reprising her "Buffy" and "Angel" role of spoiled vamp Harmony, Angel's new secretary (and Spike's ex).

"She's a single, undead girl trying to make it in the big city," McNab says.

New to the cast in a recurring role is Sarah Thompson ("Boston Public") as the enigmatic Eve.

"The WB has always liked our show critically," Bell says. "Our audience numbers are always rock-solid. We've been everywhere on the schedule, and our fans always show up. But we're not a cheap show. It's not easy to be pretty. It costs money.

"It's all about the numbers. Ultimately, they felt we were a good gamble."

While some have suggested that signing Marsters was the deciding factor, Bell says, "I don't think so. It's just a piece. If you look at him as representing a chit played to bring 'Buffy' people over, it's great. But Joe Blow in the street, who's going to be tuning in for the first time, doesn't know James Marsters vs. Angel vs. Anybody. It was an attempt to cash in on the 'Buffy' audience, and it was a smart one.

"The hope is, between being the only Joss show on the air, and bringing people over from time to time from 'Buffy' would help grow our audience."

Also a big factor was the finale, which upended the show's premise. After four seasons of battling evil on a budget, Angel and his team got the keys to the kingdom when their longtime rivals, the evil law firm of Wolfram & Hart, ceded them its L.A. office (but not without strings).

The team now must find a way to do good in an environment suffused with evil -- not to mention the temptations of wealth and luxury.

"I get to wear Marc Jacobs," Acker says.

"We're going to show them what this new world is like," Bell says of the premiere. "We have this fabulous new office space. You're going to see what each of our people's little private kingdom is within it. You're going to see the lay of the land. It has Joss humor in it.

"It really is introducing characters to people who've never seen the show before. The big mystery this year is, 'Why are we at Wolfram & Hart? Why did they invite us in here? Can we do good?'

"There are lots of big, shiny, glittery things out there and how badly do you want them? What price are you willing to pay?"

David Boreanaz on Angel Movie & New Project

TV Guide chatted with actor David Boreanaz who says the rumors he's not up for an Angel movie are nonsense. He's willing to go another round, but not on TV.

"It would have to be a theatrical release," he says. "I'm not into the movie-of-the-week [idea]."

WB execs said they were interested in doing TV films. "I know they wanted to do, like, six films," Boreanaz added, "It's not that I'm against it; it just needs to be a bigger challenge. When you do something for five seasons, you want to continue to challenge yourself... go to another level with it rather than just doing the same thing you've been doing."

Next up for Boreanaz is the comedy Mr. Fix It and he's also signed up for another high-profile franchise film that he insists is not Superman. "It's better," he teases, adding, "'Four' would be the magic number — that's all I'm going to say."

He could mean Jurassic Park 4, Fantastic Four, or Indiana Jones 4. We'll let you know when we find out more.

Buffy and Angel Movies Still Possible

Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel creator Joss Whedon told SCI FI Wire that he's ready to return to the Buffyverse with television films once he receives a green light from The WB, home of Angel, or another network. "We haven't really heard anything," Whedon said in an interview. "Obviously, there's been a regime change at The WB. The fans are interested. I'm interested. I don't think either [Buffy star] Sarah [Michelle Gellar] or [Angel star] David [Boreanaz] would want to do it. But I think there's about 10 other characters I could name who would be totally worthy of movies. And I'm just waiting for somebody to say yea or nay."

As for a proposed Buffy animated series, Whedon said, "A presentation is being made. It hasn't been bought anywhere, but it's still in the creating stages, so it's still a possibility."

Beyond Buffy, Whedon said he'd readily return to series television. "I had some ideas," he said. "I'm sort of trying to look at the marketplace and say, 'What kind of idea will actually go?' Because I'm not really interested in making things that don't. … So I'm not sure if what I have is what the world wants right now."

But, Whedon added, "I am totally prepared to go back to TV. Not 24-seven, as I did with the first years of Buffy. But now I've learned about surrounding yourself with the right people and delegating so that I can actually run a show without ruining my life. And TV is, you know, … a medium that I love in a very different way than I love movies. The things that I can't do in [a] movie are things that I mourn: the smaller moments. The … protracted interactions. The things that make TV really fascinating. Watching characters change over the years. You know, I've waited my whole life to make movies, but movies don't do that. … You either write novels that are way too long, or you make TV if you want to do that. And … I can't write novels that are long."

David Boreanaz up for a new ABC drama project

David Boreanaz, former star of WB's Angel, reportedly may return to network TV in an ABC drama about undercover hit man Jack Ballantine. Boreanaz will play an undercover cop in the murder for hire world for the TV project, which has a script commitment from ABC, said Monday's Hollywood Reporter. Boreanaz, who played the title character in the WB series, recently completed filming the independent movies Mr. Fix It and The Hard Easy. He currently is filming another independent, These Girls, written and directed by John Hazlett.

After a five season run on The WB drama Angel, David Boreanaz is ready to make a return to the small screen. The project, which already received a script commitment from ABC, will be produced by Warner Bros. Television and the studio-based Tannenbaum Co. Feature scribe Patrick Smith Kelly, who will executive produce the series, has been hired to pen the script based on the real story of undercover hit man Jack Ballantine. The new drama will star Boreanaz has an undercover cop working in the dark world of murder for hire. Kelly will executive produce with the Tannanbaum Co.'s Eric Tannenbaum and Kim Tannenbaum. The Tannenbaums have previously worked together on series including The Mullets and Two and a Half Men. Repped by CAA, Boreanaz recently wrapped the indie features Mr. Fix It and The Hard Easy. He's also attached to star in the indie project These Girls for helmer John Hazlett.

There will be more ''Angel''


Last season he was staked by The WB network. But according to a Cinescape insider, it now appears as if the network may be reconsidering bringing "Angel" back. "Angel," the supernatural drama series which began as a spinoff of the smash-hit "Buffy The Vampire Slayer," lasted five seasons on the Frog network, and provided action-packed thrills, giggles and the occasional apocalypse. At the point of cancellation, however, The WB announced that they were interested in continuing the story through a series of television movies, none of which have ever been developed. Reports now suggest that the problem might not be with the network, but rather, with Angel himself.

Show star David Boreanaz has consistently said he is eager to move away from the series, both to launch a movie career and to spend more time with his family. So fans who thought the story ended there, better think again. Cinescape’s source says that The WB is still pushing the resurrection of the series in one form or another. Apparently, The WB network chairman Garth Ancier has spoken with series co-creator Joss Whedon about doing something with "Angel." That "something" could be television movies, a miniseries or even a complete sixth season.

But before fans get too excited, there is a small catch. The insider explains that everyone in the show's cast and crew have moved on to other projects. James Marsters (Spike) has been involved in a short stint on "The Mountain," impressing writers of the series, and will most likely return to the series in a more frequent basis. Similarly, Amy Acker (Fred/Illyria) and Charisma Carpenter (Cordelia) are in the running to be the next Lois Lane in the new "Superman" movie. And David Boreanaz himself has several movie roles lined up.

What does this mean for the show? Well, the news that Acker is too busy to return for a single "Angel" project disproves the rumours of an Illyria spinoff which started with the official magazine. "Yes, there will be more ‘Angel’ - just hard to say when," the source said. "If Amy gets ‘Superman’ - she's out, if James stays on ‘The Mountain’ - that'll be a juggle, and if David Boreanaz gets any more anti-‘Angel,’ they'll have to recast." So in an ironic twist, the network which deemed “Angel” not suitable for television, is now desperate for more, and the cast and crew have gone on to greener pastures.

New role for David Boreanaz

Former Angel star David Boreanaz is set for an ABC drama project based on the life of undercover hit man Jack Ballantine, says The Hollywood Reporter. The show comes from Warner Bros. Television and studio-based Tannenbaum Co.

Feature writer Patrick Smith Kelly (Don't Say a Word) is penning the script, which would star Boreanaz as an undercover cop in the world of murder for hire.

Boreanaz recently completed the independent films Mr. Fix It and The Hard Easy. He is filming another indie, These Girls, written and directed by John Hazlett.
