David Arquette is one of the celebrity contestants on Season 13 of ABC's ballroom competition series "Dancing with the Stars." He is partnered with two-time champion Kym Johnson, who returns for her 10th season.

David Arquette recently starred in "Scream 4" as Dewey Riley, reprising the same role he played in the first three incarnations of the horror movie franchise. Arquette also stars in the Disney animated series "Jake and the Never Land Pirates" as the voice of Scully, a lookout pirate parrot who helps Jake and his crew of kid pirates.

David Arquette is one of the most versatile working actors today. He recently starred as Jason Ventress on ABC's "In Case of Emergency" and had a recurring role on "Pushing Daisies." He wrote and directed "The Tripper," which starred himself, Thomas Jane, Lukas Haas, Paul Reubens, Richmond Arquette, Brad Hunt, Balthazar Getty and Jason Mewes. Arquette also earned a Darwin Award at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival for "The Darwin Awards."

Discovered at Sundance for his role in "Johns" in 1997, David Arquette has been involved as both an actor and producer in five films that have all made their debut at Sundance, including the 1997 entry "Dream with the Fishes," written and directed by Finn Taylor. In 1998 Arquette starred opposite Stanley Tucci and Kate Capshaw in "The Alarmist," based on Keith Reddin's play, "Life During Wartime."

Arquette top-lined the successful comedies "See Spot Run" and "Never Been Kissed," as well as the family film "The Adventures of Shark Boy & Lava Girl in 3D." He became a household name as Deputy Dewey in the "Scream" trilogy; original plans called for his character to be killed off in the first installment, but his scene-stealing efforts assured his longevity. For his roles in "Never Been Kissed" and "Scream II," Arquette was recognized with Blockbuster Awards. He also starred in "Eight Legged Freaks" for Warner Bros.

Recent roles include "Slingshot" with Thora Birch and Julianna Margulies; Fox Searchlight's "Never Die Alone," co-starring with rap star DMX; Lions Gate's Holocaust drama, "The Grey Zone," which won him critical praise for his role as a Jewish prisoner; "Stealing Sinatra," opposite William H. Macy for Showtime Films, and "Happy Here and Now." On the small screen Arquette was seen in the movie "Timebomb" with Richard T. Jones and Angela Bassett.

David Arquette also formed his own production company, Coquette. As part of Coquette, he made his television series producing debut with the interior design show "Mix It Up," for cable's WE (Women's Entertainment) Network. The show profiled couples and roommates whose styles are at odds. Also under the Coquette banner, Arquette produced the FX drama "Dirt," starring Courteney Cox as the editor of a tabloid publication, and currently produces ABC's "Cougar Town," with Bill Lawrence. Coquette has several projects in development, including a drama that has been sold to HBO entitled "The Fall and Rise of Taylor Kennedy."

In 2010, along with his friends Ben Harper and David Bedwell, Arquette launched the clothing line Propr which started out in Arquette's garage and has grown to mass retail.

Arquette often gives his time to charitable causes (but never talks about it) and has recently been named the Chairman of the Entertainment Counsel for Feeding America. He also gives time to children's organizations such as EB/MRF, which benefits children with Epidermolysis Bullosa, The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, and Art of Elysium.
