Biography

A versatile actor who bounded into Broadway productions and Hollywood films immediately after graduating from the Yale School of Drama, Grant played leading roles in a number of films and TV-movies before settling into a run of colorful and provocative character roles. A student at Julliard during summer breaks from high school, Grant later joined the Yale Repertory Company during his college days, and in 1978 (the year he graduated), made a strong impression in the play "Bent". The following year he recreated his role on Broadway opposite Richard Gere in this powerful study of gays imprisoned during WWII in a Nazi concentration camp. He also made a likable feature debut as one of a group of college students spending their junior year abroad in the mild teen comedy "French Postcards".
