David Rodman "Dave" Annable (born September 15, 1979) is an American actor. He played the character of Justin Walker on the television series Brothers & Sisters from 2006 to 2011. He then protrayed Henry Martin on ABC's new show 666 Park Avenue.


Early life

Annable was born in Suffern, New York. He grew up in Walden, a small town in New York, where he played baseball, rugby and hockey. He attended Valley Central High School and graduated in 1997.

He attended college at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh (SUNY Plattsburgh). There, he became involved with the student-run TV station, Plattsburgh State Television (PSTV), working both on production behind the scenes and on the air as well. He hosted many shows at PSTV, including Late Night with Dave Annable, Cardinal Sports, and The Roommate Game. Annable credits Plattsburgh State Television for preparing him for his successful career in television. Annable dropped out of college in 2003 to pursue his acting career.[1]

After leaving SUNY Plattsburgh, Annable studied acting at the Neighborhood Playhouse in New York with Richard Pinter.


In 2002, Annable made his acting debut in an episode of the NBC Crime Drama television series Third Watch.[2] Annable has appeared in numerous commercials, such as Mountain Dew, Starburst and Abercrombie and Fitch.[3] In 2004 Annable appeared in the films Little Black Book and Spellbound.[4] In 2007 Annable was ranked as #7 on People magazines annual list of Sexiest Men Alive.[5]

In September 2005 Annable appeared in the FOX Drama television series Reunion. The series centers on six friends who attend their 20th high school reunion in which one of them is murdered and all of them are suspects.[6] Annable portrayed the role of Aaron Lewis a master-mind behind a multi-million dollar company. In December 2005 FOX cancelled the series due to low ratings shortly after the ninth episode aired.[7] The WB reportedly showed interest in picking up the series on their network but these plans never materialized.[8]

In 2006, Annable appeared in ABC Drama television series pilot Brothers & Sisters alongside Calista Flockhart, Rachel Griffiths, and Sally Field.[9] In May that same year ABC picked the series up for a 23-episode first season.[10] The series follows the daily lives of the Walker family in Pasadena, California. Annable portrays the role of Justin Walker (Brothers & Sisters) a paramedic, war veteran and former med school student. The series fifth season premiered in September 2010 to 9.47 million viewers.[11] In May 2011, ABC did not renew the series for a sixth season.[12] In 2008 Annable won the "Best Performance in a Drama Series Multi-Episode Storyline" Prism Award for his role on the show.[13]

Five years after dropping out of college, Dave Annable finally earned his diploma from SUNY Plattsburgh on May 16, 2009. In addition to earning his degree, Annable was awarded the "Off To A Good Start" award and gave a commencement address to his fellow Class of 2009 graduates. Completing college was a promise he made to his mother.[1][14]

In January 2012, Annable was confirmed to star as the protagonist in the ABC Supernatural Drama pilot 666 Park Avenue.[15] In May 2012 the series was picked up.[16] The series follows a couple, who learns that the Manhattan building complex that they just moved into, including its upscale tenants, might be possessed by a mysterious demonic force. Rachael Taylor, Vanessa Williams and Robert Buckley have been confirmed to star.[17] It is scheduled to air on Sundays at 10:00 pm Eastern/9:00 pm Central after Revenge, premiering September 30, 2012.[18][19]
