The son of actor/director Stephen Furst, who notably played Kent Dorfman in the 1978 fraternity comedy "Animal House," Griff Furst grew up around motion pictures and Hollywood actors, and was happy to build a career in the family business. His first role was in 1999 as a singer in a family feature directed by his father, "Baby Huey's Great Easter Adventure." This musical role was an apt one for Furst to take, considering he is a musician as well as an actor, playing drums for the band Cideways. Following his debut in a family video, Furst began to take on meatier roles, as in 2005's "Alien Abduction" and 2009's "I Love You Phillip Morris." In addition to his work on the big screen, Furst also appeared in a number of TV movies such as 2006's " Basilisk: The Serpent King," 2008's " Living Proof," and 2010's " Quantum Apocalypse," about the struggle of astrophysicists to save the Earth when it is threatened by a comet hurtling through space, with the planet in its path. Furst has a prolific acting resume, but it's clear that this is not his sole talent. In addition to his music and acting, Furst has demonstrated that he's capable of wearing many hats in Hollywood and has directed, produced, edited, written and dabbled in cinematography.
