Biography

Before he was 20, David Faustino already had 150 TV, film and TV commercial credits. Best known as Bud Bundy, long the virgin son on the Fox sitcom "Married...With Children" (1987-97), Faustino had an every-teen quality which served him well. From a show business family--his father is a costumer, his siblings have acted as well--Faustino began his career at three months of age playing Lily Tomlin's child on one of her TV specials (1974). As early as 1979, he was acting on an episode of "Little House on the Prairie". In 1982, he played Ann-Margret's son in the feature film "I Ought to Be in Pictures" and, the following year, he was Michael Douglas' son in "The Star Chamber". Faustino first began working on a regular TV series in 1985, playing Victor Garber's son on "I Had Three Wives", a short-lived CBS summer effort. Two years later, he landed on "Married...With Children", the first Fox network series to succeed. A twist on the family sitcom, it featured the Bundys, a rather vulgar and bawdy nuclear group of four. Faustino played Bud, the would-be loose and licentious son. The series became one of the longest-running sitcoms in TV history. Faustino has also appeared in a few TV-movies. He starred in the Disney Sunday Movie "Mr. Boogedy" (1986) and its 1987 sequel, as well as the Disney Channel's "Perfect Harmony" (1991), which focused on racism at a prep school. In 1992, Faustino was the high school student befriended by a 25-year old Kadeem Hardison who had returned to school to learn to read in "Words Up!" a CBS Schoolbreak Special. Visible in Hollywood's teen celebrity "society", Faustino for a period was part of a rap group called "The Outlawed Posse" and in 1991 co-founded Balistyx, the first hip hop and funk nightclub on Sunset Boulevard. By the mid 90s, Faustino was spending his hiatuses from "Married...With Children" in New York studying acting.
