Since starting his career during the early '80s, David Andrews has appeared in both major Hollywood blockbusters and popular television series. A versatile character actor, he actually attended law school during the 1970s, but segued to life in front of the camera after landing a few guest-starring roles. He had a small part in 1984's "A Nightmare on Elm Street," and in '87, was cast as Larry Summers, the lead in the British detective series "Pulaski: The TV Detective," which is now considered a classic. Playing a different sort of cop in the 1992 television show "Mann & Machine" led to less successful results, but during this time Andrews was working steadily in both movies and series. In '95, he had a supporting role in his biggest box office success to-date, the historical thriller "Apollo 13," which paved the way for small parts in "Fight Club" and "Hannibal," among other films. Eventually, he scored a major coup as part of the cast of 2010's "Fair Game," about the real-life betrayal of covert government agent Valerie Plame. Andrews landed the part of Scooter Libby in the film. Through the start of the 2010s, Andrews' television credits have been too numerous to count, though his best-known parts have had ties to the military: high-ranking judge Major General Gordon "Biff" Cresswell in "JAG" from 2004 to 2005, and astronaut Frank Borman in the late '90s mini-series "From the Earth to the Moon."
