Scott Grimes was one of the most recognizable voices of the early 21st century, though fans of cult horror films would probably also recognize his face. Born on July 9, 1971 in Lowell, MA, Grimes began acting at a young age, making his screen debut in 1984 alongside Mickey Rooney in the made-for-TV movie "It Came Upon the Midnight Clear" (1984), while also appearing in an episode of the rebooted "The Twilight Zone" (CBS, 1985-89). Soon after, he began his singing career, releasing his self-titled, Richard Carpenter-produced debut album through A&M Records in 1989. Grimes played Brad Brown in "Critters" (1986) and "Critters 2: The Main Course" (1988), endearing him eternally to horror hounds everywhere. He soon became quite a prolific TV actor, appearing on shows such as "Who's the Boss?" (ABC, 1984-1992), "Charles in Charge" (CBS/syndication, 1984-1990), "Star Trek: The Next Generation" (Syndication, 1987-1994), "21 Jump Street" (FOX, 1987-1991), "Party of Five" (FOX, 1994-2000), "Band of Brothers" (HBO, 2001), and "ER" (NBC, 1994-2009). On the big screen, he worked multiple times with Russell Crowe, in the films "Mystery, Alaska" (1999), "Robin Hood" (2010) and "Winter's Tale" (2014). Grimes also continued to make music, releasing the albums "Livin' on the Run" (2005) and "Drive" (2010). In 2005, Grimes got his biggest break yet, when he was hired to voice the geeky, virginal teen Steve Smith, son of square-jawed CIA agent Stan Smith, on Seth MacFarlane's animated sitcom "American Dad!" (FOX, 2005-14; TBS, 2014- ). From there, he and MacFarlane became regular collaborators, with Grimes doing voices on "Family Guy" (FOX, 1999-2003, 2005-), and appearing in the flesh as Gordon Malloy in MacFarlane's sci-fi parody "The Orville" (FOX, 2017- ).
