BIOGRAPHY

The multi-talented Todd Graff began his career as a child performer, voicing the character of Choo Choo Charlie in TV commercials for Good 'N' Plenty candy. He went on to appear as a regular Short Circus on the award-winning PBS educational series "The Electric Company" from 1975-77 before attending college. As an adult, Graff first made his mark on stage coupled with Liz Callaway in the musical "Baby" (1983), for which he netted a Tony Award nomination. Onscreen, he has performed mid-size roles in several features, including "Five Corners" (1987), as Jodie Foster's handicapped boyfriend, "Dominick and Eugene" (1988), as a garbageman co-worker of Tom Hulce, and James Cameron's "The Abyss" (1989), as a paranoid crewman. He scripted "Used People" (1992), adapted from his play "The Grandma Plays" (1989), as well as co-produced and wrote the Geena Davis vehicle, "Angie" (1994), a film resembling his previous effort in its use of sweet-natured--though some critics have charged condescending--ethnic stereotypes and themes of familial strife. These works incorporated Graff's theater origins in their reliance on community-based plots and limited shooting locations.
