New York City - New York - US


Aug. 9, 2012 - PRLog -- After attending Columbia University in NYC, Mr. Wilson studied acting and theater arts at the famed Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theater from which he graduated in 1971. His craft was forged under the tutelage of legendary acting teacher, Sanford Meisner.

David’s work in the entertainment industry spans more than four decades. During this time, he has worked at every level and in virtually every capacity of the industry on more than 100 productions on live stage, in film, television and music. He has acted, written, recorded, produced and directed both in the US and abroad.

He began his writing career as an apprentice in the CBS-TV young writer’s program under Sam Rolfe and Fred Freiberger at Lorimar Productions (Dallas, Knots Landing, Falcon Crest, etc.) writing for the critically acclaimed, but short-lived Ron Liebman series, Kaz.

After co-starring in the cult classic, “Eddie and the Cruisers,” he traveled to Sweden for a well deserved vacation. But, his sojourn was cut short by an opportunity to work there. He wrote, produced, directed and starred in the international hit musical cabaret, End of the Rainbow followed by, Monkey Business; In the Jungle. He subsequently wrote the original story, “Tale of the Tired Gun” that became the basis for the Clint Eastwood film, “The Unforgiven.”. He later wrote the first draft script of Stanley Kubrick’s last film, “Eyes Wide Shut” (originally titled, Crimes of Punishment) that was produced by and starred Tom Cruise.

Shortly thereafter, he and Ms. Mikki Ben Kiki embarked upon the first production of “Liberation Front.” Well ahead of its time, the play marked the first New York effort for both Pisceans. He has since penned or collaborated on a dozen more scripts, including the story of America’s first world boxing champion, “Mike Donovan,” and another project with Ms. Ben Kiki, “When Summer Comes.”

Author of the original marketing plan for the mega-hit, “Blair Witch Project,” he and his R&D partner, world renowned research specialist Dr. Daniel Acuff, widely considered the foremost authority on youth marketing, continue to develop new methods and models for the marketing and merchandising of films, TV, stage and related products, goods and services. They have been engaged in this work for more than 20 years. Their company is Film-Rx Partners.

A principal owner of Willy-Gilly Productions, Inc. with his wife, Nan Gill-Wilson, they are completing the final touches on the campaign for their first feature film release, “COLLAR,” expected out early in 2012. They have initiated a full training program for actors, writers and directors (Acting Anyone Academy) and they are working with local theater companies to train technical and behind the scenes talent to support the growth of the entertainment industry in New York’s Hudson Valley.

They are also the driving force behind reestablishing the area as a pre-eminent locale for developing, producing and distributing independent films, TV and stage productions.
His other credits include: “The Bronx Zoo” (series), “Unspeakable Acts”, “Wiseguy”, “Magnum P.I”, “Chips”, “Almost Summer”, “Hometown, USA”, “Gray Lady Down”, “Audrey Rose”, “I Love You, Perfect”, “Coins in the Fountain”, “Gangster. Still in love with acting, he has added writing, directing and producing to his professional profile with the new independent film COLLAR Starring Tom Sizemore, Rebecca DeMornay, Richard Roundtree and David Wilson himself in the lead.

In COLLAR, Wilson plays Timothy James 'TJ' Williams, a streetwise detective whose checkered career, family life and long standing friendship with the would-be mayor, police chief Hamilton Markham (Tom Sizemore), spins out of control and teeters on the brink of catastrophe as a result of a bust gone bad. While his life begins to crumble, his fast fading future is bartered for political gain by his former best friend and boss, a mayor with her eye on a Senate seat (Rebecca De Mornay) and an ambitious, activist 'man-of-the-cloth,' the Rev. Alonso Sparks (Richard Roundtree). The political machinery, geared to grind up Williams as a bad cop, has a wrench tossed into the works by the detective, who with the help of his partner, Angel Santangelo (Jaime Santana), gets back on the job to reclaim his reputation and his dignity in spite of their worst efforts.
