Throughout his career, actor David Boutin consistently delivered memorable and compelling performances, regardless of the medium or genre. He was born on Nov. 12, 1969 in Montréal, Québec, Canada. A 1996 graduate of the National Theatre School, Boutin made his film debut in André Forcier's romantic comedy "The Countess of Baton Rouge" (1998), followed by a critically acclaimed performance in "Hochelaga" (2000), a gritty crime drama about a long-standing feud between two rival biker gangs. A versatile actor, Boutin also appeared on a string of television shows including the comedies "Bunker, le cirque" (Radio-Canada, 2002) and "Rumeurs" (Radio-Canada, 2002-08), as well as the drama series "Nos étés" (2005-08). In 2008, he scored a lead part in the feature film "La ligne brisée" ("The Broken Line"), a drama about two longtime friends (Boutin and Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge) who box for living. Their friendship is tested after they are forced to fight each other in a boxing match. The following year, Boutin became a series regular on the crime thriller "Le gentleman" (TVA, 2009), as a mysterious and obnoxious double agent who is on the hunt for his girlfriend's attacker. He delivered another compelling performance in "Décharge" (2011) as a reformed man and father who risks falling back into his bad habits as he tries to save a young prostitute.
