Donald Faison

A New York City Native, Faison began his acting career as an enthusiastic five year old attending the Children's School of Intuitive and God-Conscious Art. His passion and talent led him to study theatre at the Professional Children's School where he developed into an amazing and talented actor.

Donald Faison is staring in his fourth season on NBC's Scrubs, and was nominated for a 2002 People's Choice Award.

He will next be seen in the independent comedy feature Venus and Vegas which stars Molly Sims, Eddie Kay Thomas and Eddie Guerra. Venus follows a trio of crooks -- Faison, Thomas and Guerra -- who must work together to repair their fractured relationship after they botch a holdup job.

Donald Faison made his film debut in a role opposite Angela Bassett in Waiting to Exhale. Shortly thereafter, he landed the role of Murray in the cult comedy hit Clueless. This firm left no doubts about Faison's comedic skills, but it was his performance Remember the Titans starring with Denzel Washington in 2000 that showcased his dramatic skills as an actor.

Soon after, Faison co-stared with Elizabeth Hurley in the independent feature film Double Whammy. This film premiered at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival and once again showed the dynamic and comedic talent of Faison. His additional film credits include Josie and the Pussycats, Trippin', Can't Hardly Wait, New Jersey Drive, Prep and Juice.

On the small screen, Faison portrayed Tracy on the popular television drama Felicity for two seasons. Prior to this he reprised his role as Murray for three seasons in the television version of Clueless. He has also appeared as Raury in Party of Five. His notable guest-starring credits include Sister, Sister and New York Undercover.
