  Summary  

David Blue is an American actor, writer, producer and director. He is known for his portrayal of Cliff St. Paul on Ugly Betty and Eli Wallace on the Syfy series Stargate Universe.

  Biography  

 early life
The youngest of three sons, Blue was raised in both New York and Florida. David attended Countryside High School in Clearwater, Florida and went on to the acting conservatory at the University of Central Florida.

 career
His first starring role came in the film Winter Follies, directed by Darren Lynn Bousman who also helmed Saw II, Saw III, and Saw IV.

David was one of the eight selected for the Apprentice program at the Actor's Theatre of Louisville, where he worked with many acclaimed artists, such as Jennifer Hubbard and Sullivan Canaday White. He was also later granted a scholarship to the British Academy of Dramatic Arts but his burgeoning career prevented him from accepting straight away. He has training in many different acting styles including Method, Meisner, Viewpoints, and Suzuki. David has also had extensive improvisation training and comedy experience.

Blue performed in the premiere workshop production of Ain't No Mountain High Enough at the Mark Taper Forum. The musical was based on the works of Motown creator Berry Gordy and directed by Kenny Leon who had previously directed Sean Combs in the Broadway production of A Raisin in the Sun. The musical co-starred such TV/Film/Theatre talent as Cleavant Derricks and Ellis Williams.

On Ugly Betty, Blue starred as Cliff St. Paul, a photographer at Mode magazine and love interest to Wilhelmina Slater's faithful assistant, Marc St. James, played by Michael Urie. Before his breakthrough role on Ugly Betty, David was busy making guest appearances elsewhere, including Veronica Mars, FX's series Dirt, and Disney's hit comedy The Suite Life of Zack and Cody. Blue received a large following on CBS's Moonlight as Logan Griffen, a technology-obsessed vampire recluse who often assists Mick St. John, played by Alex O'Loughlin. CBS chose to not renew Moonlight after its freshman season, but there have been rumors of a movie in development. One of Blue's feature film appearances was in The Comebacks, a comedy spoof on inspirational sports movies starring David Koechner, Matthew Lawrence, and Bradley Cooper.

Blue was part of the one-night celebrity staging of Howard Ashman's unproduced musical Dreamstuff. The musical was re-imagined by Howard's partners Marsha Malamet and Dennis Green and performed one night only at Los Angeles' Hayworth Theatre as part of the Bruno Kirby celebrity reading series, directed by his Ugly Betty co-star Michael Urie. David starred in the show alongside Eden Espinosa, Fred Willard, Vicki Lewis, and Luke Macfarlane.

Currently producing/writing multiple projects, David was most recently seen as one of the leads on Syfy's Stargate Universe. Starring opposite Robert Carlyle, David played the role of Eli Wallace.
