Since January 2009 David Faustino starrs in an online sitcom called Star-ving. Co-star is Corin Nemec and Coolio has several cameos. The episodes are between 5:00 and 8:30 minutes long. There are some MwC references used on the show, but the plots, portrayals and language are quite obscene. Running gags include Dave trying to kill himself and Dave showing his bare butt. Episode 5 was even banned on Youtube because of the nazi storyline. Check Star-ving out at the Crackle website. Guest stars include Ed O'Neill (episodes 1 and 4), Gilbert Gottfried (episode 2), Christina Applegate (episode 4), Katey Sagal (episode 4) and Seth Green (episode 4).

David currently plays small parts in movies and has guest appearances in TV series. He is dating actress Christiana Leucas.
