From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. David Arquette (born September 8, 1971) is an American actor, film director, producer, screenwriter, fashion designer, and occasional professional wrestler. A member of the Arquette acting family, he first became known during the late 1990s after starring in several Hollywood films, including the Scream series. He has since had several television roles, including playing Jason Ventress on ABCs In Case of Emergency. In addition to his acting career Arquette took a brief foray into professional wrestling in early 2000, competing for World Championship Wrestling (WCW). During his tenure, Arquette would become a one-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion, an angle which has been cited by prominent professional wrestling commentators as being pivotal to the degradation of the title and the demise of WCW.
