David Hornsby, known for his role as “Cricket” on the hit FX series “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” has made a name for himself not only as an actor but also as a writer and producer. With over 40 writing credits on “It’s Always Sunny,” Hornsby has proven his talent for creating comedic content.
In 2017, Hornsby’s character “Cricket” was given his own episode titled “A Cricket’s Tale,” which Hornsby pitched to the show’s creators. “Give me one episode guys. It’s been 12 years…give me one shot,” he jokingly said to After Buzz TV. The episode was a hit, showcasing Hornsby’s range as an actor and writer.
But Hornsby’s talent extends far beyond “It’s Always Sunny.” He has appeared on numerous shows, including “Good Girls” and “The Goldbergs,” and has lent his voice to various animated programs over the years.
In addition to his work in front of the camera, Hornsby has been given the opportunity to develop his own series on multiple occasions. He created and starred in the short-lived CBS sitcom “How To Be A Gentlemen” in 2011. The following year, in 2012, Hornsby was once again given his own show – the animated series “Unsupervised.” The show was a departure from the “Always Sunny” universe, with Hornsby stating that he wanted to “show some positive characters in a cynical world. So sue us!” when speaking to TV Guide in 2012.
Hornsby’s latest project was a collaboration with “Workaholics” star Blake Anderson on a CBS sitcom in 2017. However, the project never made it to air.
Despite the setbacks, Hornsby’s talent and creativity continue to shine. With his ability to write, produce, and act, he has become a valuable asset to the entertainment industry. Fans of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” eagerly await his next project, and it’s safe to say that Hornsby’s career is just getting started.
