David James Elliott


Date Of Birth

September 21, 1960


Canadian-born actor David James Elliott initially wanted to pursue a musical career but eventually decided to pursue acting. He gained some semblance of popularity in 1986 when he appeared on the film Police Academy 3: Back in Training. From there, he appeared in numerous television shows and films, notably major roles in the television series Street Legal, The Untouchables and Melrose Place. He gained wider prominence, however, when he was cast as one of the leads in the military drama JAG as Captain Harm Rabb Jr.

After JAG folded up, Elliott appeared in a few other films and television shows, before taking a major role in the legal drama Close to Home. He joined the show’s second season as James Conlon, a prosecutor from New York and new boss of lead character Annabeth Chase (Jennifer Finnigan). His stay would be short-lived, however, as the series was cancelled at the end of the second season. In 2007, he joined the cast of the Canadian series The Guard, which centered on the personal and professional lives of members of the Canadian Coast Guard.

In 2010, Elliot was cast on the ABC crime comedy series Scoundrels as Wolfgang "Wolf" West. He also had a recurring role in CSI:NY. Afterwards, he booked the part of Ripp Cockburn on the 2012 dramedy Good Christian Belles, or GCB.
