David Denman: I'm A Little Crazy Doing Nautica Malibu Triathlon

Posted: Updated:

David Denman joins the cast of "Parenthood," but this Sunday he's taking part in the Nautica Malibu Triathlon. David talked to Steve and Maria about the race, which consists of a Classic distance race that is made up of a ½ mile ocean swim, 18 mile bike ride and a 4 mile run through Malibu.

David explained why he loves doing the event for himself and for a good cause.

Money raised will benefit the Cancer Research Program of the Children's Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases at Children's Hospital Los Angeles.

Last year, the event raised more than a million dollars. This year they hope to surpass that goal. David also talked about his role in the first few seasons of "The Office" and how he'd be recognized on the street...which wasn't always a good thing considering his part on the show: Pam's jerky fiance.

"When it first came out, people would scream at you across the street 'you're such a bleepin' beep-bepp'...and now everyone is just like, the fans of the show are just excited...it's always been a great thing."

Fun Facts About David Denman:

  • He made his film debut with Keanu Reeves and Gene Hackman as the deaf tight-end in the Warner Bros. football comedy The Replacements.
  • When not in front of the camera, Denman has often performed on stage. He regularly performs with Orange County based troupe Shakespeare Orange County, where he has played roles including Orlando, Petruchio, Henry V, and Brutus.
  • Denman was born in Newport Beach, California. After graduating from Fountain Valley High School with fellow alumni Craig Brewer and Omar Metwally, Denman attended the summer training congress at American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco. He then attended the Juilliard School's Drama Division.
