Stage to screen: Pittsburgher David Whalen, from 'Candida' to 'The Fault in Our Stars' (video)

Written by Sharon Eberson on .


The guy saying "Hi guys" in the new trailer for "The Fault in Our Stars" is David Whalen, who plays the father of Augustus Waters (Ansel Elgort) in the Pittsburgh-filmed movie. Whalen recently completed a gig at the Pittsburgh Public Theater as Morrell in "Candida" and is rarely far from a Pittsburgh stage. He can be seen on screen in the popular YA novel-turned-film, due in theaters June 6.
