He further claimed that the shining Hollywood spotlight forced him to “hide” from people, and prevented him to do what he was trained to do as an actor: “to observe life and to observe other people.”

Since wrapping up Friends, David has focused on theatre and small productions and only just recently resurfaced with his role of Rob Kardashian on the hit FOX show, The People v. O.J.Simpson.
