David Anthony Faustino (born March 3, 1974) is an American actor and rapper primarily known for his role as Bud Bundy on the FOX sitcom Married... with Children and for voicing Mako in The Legend of Korra.
David Faustino is currently the host of Old Scratch Radio Sundays on Skee 24/7 on Dash Radio.

Early life

Faustino was born in Los Angeles, California, on March 3, 1974, to Roger and Kay Faustino, a costumer. His older stepbrother Jeff Leiber is also an actor, and his younger brother Michael made many guest appearances on Married... with Children, including the episode David wrote, "T*R*A*S*H".


Faustino made his television debut at the age of three months when he appeared on the Lily Tomlin Special. Faustino did not start regularly acting until 1980 after a smaller part on Little House on the Prairie . Throughout the early to mid-1980s, Faustino guest-starred on many well-known TV shows such as Family Ties, St. Elsewhere, and The Love Boat. He also guest-starred in many not-so-well-known TV shows, but in 1987, he landed a full-time gig on Married... with Children.

Fox's Married... with Children was Faustino's big break, as he played Bud, the younger of the two Bundy children. He played the character from its debut on April 5, 1987, until its final episode broadcast on June 9, 1997. Faustino appeared in 259 episodes.

While filming the sitcom Married...with Children throughout the 1990s, Faustino continued to make guest appearances in many sitcoms and dramas. He reprised the role of Bud Bundy in such shows as Parker Lewis Can't Lose and Top of the Heap. Faustino also appeared in Burke's Law, MADtv, and The New Addams Family.

In 2002, he appeared in the reality television special Celebrity Boot Camp (a shortened version of the Boot Camp series for celebrities). In 2001, he appeared in the low-budget film Killer Bud produced by Aglet Productions. In 2005, Faustino guest-starred on two episodes of One on One with one of the roles was as Flex Washington's agent.

Faustino also starred as Jason Dockery in the 2008 movie RoboDoc. In April 2007, he was featured in an American McDonald’s commercial introducing the "Dollar Menunaires". He developed and starred in Star-ving, a weekly Internet comedy series on Crackle, an online video network backed by Sony Pictures Entertainment. A total of 12 episodes of Star-ving were produced. Faustino played an exaggerated version of himself in the series, which he wrote and developed with several friends as an “anti-Entourage.”

"This is a very twisted take on what I’ve been through all these years," Faustino said. He has also signed a deal with National Lampoon to be involved with three low-budget films.

Faustino appeared with the cast of Married... with Children again at the 7th Annual TV Land Awards in 2009, presented by Dr. Phil. He also had cameo appearances in two episodes of the HBO series Entourage and co-starred in the feature Not Another B Movie which was distributed by Troma Entertainment in 2011.

In October 2010, he traveled to Auckland, New Zealand, to take part in the Armageddon 'pulp culture' Expo.

By 2012, Faustino was cast in The Legend of Korra as the voice of firebender Mako, a central character named after the late Mako Iwamatsu (the voice of Iroh in the original series). He also played Dagur the Deranged as a secondary villain on season one and main villain in season two of DreamWorks Dragons.

Personal life

After meeting at a spiritual center in Los Angeles and dating for five years, he married Andrea Elmer on January 24, 2004, at the Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas, Nevada. They separated in May 2006. Faustino sought not to pay spousal support, according to the papers filed in Los Angeles. On February 6, 2007, Faustino officially filed for divorce in Los Angeles County Superior Court, citing irreconcilable differences.

On November 14, 2015, Faustino and his girlfriend Lindsay Bronson welcomed a daughter, Ava Marie Grace Faustino.

Faustino was arrested for misdemeanor possession of marijuana in May 2007. A disorderly intoxication charge was later dropped after Faustino agreed to enroll in a drug rehabilitation facility.

Faustino co-founded and co-hosted a night club in Los Angeles named Balistyx, which is the same name as his rap album. The club was "the first hip-hop/funk club on the Sunset Strip", and was originally held on Thursday nights at the Whisky a Go Go in 1991. The club "capped off" with a final New Year’s Eve party at The Roxy to ring in 1993.
