Monday Morning Man: David Burtka! was cool to look up David Burtka’s Wikipedia page and see that the photo on it was taken by ME.

I snapped it at the 2009 Emmys when I had a roaming red carpet pass and wandered around taking pictures. David could not have been nicer as we chatted awhile while his partner, Neil Patrick Harris, did TV interviews.

The 34-year-old David told me that day that he was in school studying to be a chef. Since then, He graduated from the Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts Pasadena in summer 2009 and is currently running a catering company called Gourmet M.D. in Los Angeles.

But hopefully David will still do some acting. He made his Broadway debut was as Tulsa in the 2003 production of Gypsy starring Bernadette Peters. He played The Boy in the American premiere of Edward Albee’s The Play About the Baby, for which he won the 2001 Clarence Derwent Award for most promising male performer.

In 2004, David originated the role of Matt in the musical The Opposite of Sex, and reprised the role in the work’s East Coast premiere in the summer of 2006.

He made his television debut in 2002 with a guest role on The West Wing; this was followed by guest appearances on Crossing Jordan. In How I Met Your Mother, the actor, David has made several appearances asĀ  “Scooter” (whose actual first name is Bill), the former high school boyfriend of Alyson Hannigan’s character of Lily.

David, who has two children from a previous relationship, and Neil have been together since 2004.

8 Remarks

  1. I adore David so much. Hopefully he won’t quit acting for good; wouldn’t he be a perfect fit for Glee?


    you should have use the last picture of David and Neil who was taken after David performance on April 12 2010 at Scott Alan consert. That is so beautiful that photo of them.

  3. WOW. That picture from the Scott Alan concert. They look so good. Neil has the ‘in love’ look on. I love these two.

  4. I also hope that he will not stop acting for good, because I think he is amazing, He has a great voice and I like his acting. I wish David would get alot more creditt for his own skills – He deserved that.

    I would also wish that he sometimes would give interviews – that we would hear more from him.

    here is the link to the song ‘Goodnight’ at Scott Alan’s consert David sang on April 12.It is so beautiful and emotional – That my heart melted. And he is hot.
    I love him & Neil together
