He worked in series television while getting his start in acting, including a part on "Austin City Limits" (PBS, 1974-2015). He appeared in a number of television specials, including "Tina Turner: Break Every Rule" (HBO, 1986-87) and "Late Night With David Letterman Sixth Anniversary Show" (NBC, 1987-88).

Cray continued to exercise his talent in the nineties, taking on a mix of projects like "Mother" (1996), "Can't You Hear the Wind Howl?" (1997) and "Cop Land" with Sylvester Stallone (1997). His credits also expanded to "Like It Is" (1998) starring Steve Bell. Cray most recently appeared on the documentary "Lightning in a Bottle" (2004) with Aerosmith.
