Graham Patrick Martin
Graham Patrick Martin, following a childhood training and studying at performance-based camps and schools, found himself a comfortable home on the TBS network. There, he starred on series such as the sitcom "The Bill Engvall Show" (TBS 2007-09) and the crime drama "Major Crimes" (TBS 2012-), experimenting with additional film and television roles all the while. Graham Patrick Martin was born on November 14, 1991, in Thibodaux, Louisiana. He and his family moved to New York, where Martin and his siblings attended the French Woods Festival of the Performing Arts summer camp; Martin credited the camp for inciting his interest in acting at the early age of eight. He went on to enroll in the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts in New York City. Before even graduating, Martin began securing roles in television and film. His first small screen appearance was in a 2006 episode of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" (NBC/USA 2001-2011), and his first film role in the horror movie "The Girl Next Door" (2007). It wasn't long before Martin landed a starring role on a major television comedy. At age 16, Martin earned the part of the eponymous star's dimwitted son on "The Bill Engvall Show" (TBS 2007-09). The position led to roles in feature films like "Rising Star" (2010) and a recurring part on "Two and a Half Men" (CBS 2003-2015) as star Angus T. Jones' character's friend Eldridge. Formidably, Martin starred as the character Rusty Beck in an episode of the final season of "The Closer" (TBS 2005-2012); he went on to bring this character to the regular cast of the program's spinoff series "Major Crimes" (TBS 2012-).
