David Moscow is an American actor, best known for his role as the young Josh Baskin in the 1988 film Big.

Born in New York City on November 14, 1974, David Moscow was the only child of Jewish parents who divorced when he was just four years old. His mother, a former actress, remarried when David was ten, and his stepfather, a successful businessman, encouraged his interest in acting.

David made his acting debut at the age of eleven in the Off-Broadway play The Wind in the Willows. He went on to appear in several more Off-Broadway productions before landing his first film role in 1984’s Reckless.

After appearing in a handful of other films, including The Pick-up Artist and The Hotel New Hampshire, David was cast as the young Josh Baskin in Big. The film was a huge success, and David’s performance earned him a Young Artist Award nomination.

Following Big, David appeared in the films Newsies and Hocus Pocus, as well as the TV movie Camp Cucamonga. He also had a recurring role on the TV series Roseanne.

In recent years, David has appeared in the films Spider-Man 2 and 3, as well as the TV series Numb3rs and Without a Trace. He has also directed several short films.

David Moscow is currently married to actress Olivia d’Abo. The couple has two children together.
