David Harbour has gained a reputation as a performer facile in film and television as he is on stage, a medium in which he was nominated for a 2005 Tony Award® for the role of Nick in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?. He is perhaps best known to film audiences for his role as Shep Campbell in the romantic period drama Revolutionary Road, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. Audiences can soon see him opposite Jake Gyllenhaal and Anna Kendrick in End of Watch, in Knife Fight with Rob Lowe and in Between Us where he reprises the role of Joel, which he played in the off-Broadway production of the play. Other film credits include Thin Ice, Kinsey, Brokeback Mountain, The Green Hornet, W.E., The Wedding Weekend, Quantum of Solace and State of Play. Television credits include Aaron Sorkin's "The Newsroom" (recurring), "Pan Am'" (recurring), "Lie To Me" and "Law & Order" (all three). A New York native, Harbour graduated from Byram Hills High School in Armonk, New York, just north of New York City. In 1997 he graduated from Dartmouth College with a double-major in drama and Italian. He soon impressed theatrical critics and audiences alike, appearing in Lanford Wilson’s Fifth of July and in such Broadway productions as The Merchant of Venice opposite Al Pacino, Tom Stoppard’s The Invention Of Love and The Coast of Utopia at Lincoln Center Theater.
