David is the middle child born to physician Thomas Scott Strathairn, Jr., and nurse Mary Frances (née Frazier), of Scottish and Hawaiian ancestry through his paternal grandparents. He went to Redwood High School, and after matriculation enrolled at Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts, from which he graduated in 1970. After that he joined the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Clown College in Venice, Florida to study clowning , after which he worked as a clown in a traveling circus before venturing into acting.

He made his debut in the drama “Return of the Secaucus Seven” (1979), starring Bruce MacDonald, Maggie Renzi and Adam LeFevre, and then in the early ‘80s had several brief roles in such films as “Lovesick” (1983), “Enormous Changes at the Last Minute” (1983), with Kevin Bacon and Maria Tucci, and the Academy Award- nominated “Silkwood”, with Meryl Streep, Kurt Russell and Cher in lead roles. In 1984 he was selected for the role of Dr. Robert Hand in the TV series “Search for Tomorrow” (1984-1985), and then in 1987 appeared in the history drama “Matewan”, starring Chris Cooper, James Earl Jones and Mary McDonnell,. Before the ‘80s ended, David starred in the Primetime Emmy Award- winning historic drama “Day One” (1989), with Brian Dennehy and Michael Tucker.

In the early ‘90s, David had appeared in numerous films, such as the war drama “Memphis Belle” (1990), then Golden Globe Award- winning drama “Without Warning: The James Brady Story” (1991), with Beau Bridges and Joan Allen as the stars of the film, then “A League of Their Own” (1992), starring Tom Hanks, Geena Davis and Lori Petty, “The Firm” (1993) with Tom Cruise and Gene Hackman, and “The River Wild” (1994), next to Meryl Streep, and Kevin Bacon. In 1997 David featured in the Academy Award- winning mystery drama “L.A. Confidential”, starring Kevin Spacey, Russell Crowe and Guy Pearce, and then in 1999 had the lead role in the John Sayles’ film “Limbo”.

Nothing changed for David in the new millennium as he continued to build up his portfolio and with roles in such films as “Freedom Song” (2000), “Harrison’s Flowers” (2000), and TV series “Big Apple” (2001), only increased his net worth.

In 2005 he had his most prominent role, as Edward R. Murrow in the biographical drama “Good Night, and Good Luck”, directed by George Clooney, with David receiving nominations for Academy Award and Golden Globe and BAFTA Awards. The particular role increased his net worth to a large degree but also made his name extremely popular, which brought new roles, such as the lead role in the drama “The Sensation of Sight” (2006), and the lead role in the mystery drama “Fracture” (2007), with Anthony Hopkins and Ryan Reynolds, further increasing his net worth. Also in 2007 he portrayed CIA Deputy Director Noah Vosen in the Academy Award-winning action thriller “The Bourne Ultimatum”, with Julia Stiles and Matt Damon, while in 2010 he played Dr. Carlock in the made-for-television film “Temple Grandin”, for which he won Primetime Emmy Award in the category Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Mini-series or Movie, among other nominations. In 2013 he had the lead role in the historic drama “No God, No Master”, while in 2014 he played Admiral William Stenz in the sci-fi action adventure “Godzilla”, and then from 2015 until 2016 played Peter Kotsiopulos in the TV series “The Blacklist”. Most recently, he will appear in the films “November Criminals” (2017), and “An Interview with God”, which are scheduled for release late in 2017, and “Fast Color”, which has a release date for 2018.

Regarding his personal life, David has been married to Logan Goodman since 1980; the couple has two children.

#Quote
1Artists, actors and performers are sometimes vilified for stepping outside of the workplace or using their work as a kind of bully pulpit.
2It feels as if you put on a many-pocketed coat with 100 cell phones, all on vibe alert, and they all start going off at random times, and you begin to think, 'This is pretty uncomfortable'. You can't possibly answer all these phones, nor should you. 'Buzz' - that's really a quite apropos word. They say it's great for the film. Well, if it's great for the film, that's great. [on the "buzz" surrounding him and his performance in Good Night, and Good Luck. (2005)]
