PRACTICAL MAGIC

Filmmaker/actor GRIFFIN DUNNE (Director) most recently ventured into directing with the dark comedy "Addicted to Love" and the critically acclaimed, Academy Award-nominated short film "Duke of Groove." As an actor, Dunne is perhaps best known for his performance in the Golden Globe-nominated "After Hours," which was directed by Martin Scorsese and produced by Dunne and his partner, Amy Robinson.

Dunne began his motion picture career by co-producing "Chilly Scenes of Winter," in which he also had a featured role. That led to starring roles in "An American Werewolf in London," "Who's That Girl," "I Like It Like That," "My Girl" and "Search and Destroy."

Dunne has produced four other films with Amy Robinson: "Baby It's You," directed by John Sayles; the critically acclaimed "Running on Empty," which starred Judd Hirsch, Christine Lahti, River Phoenix and Martha Plimpton and received two Academy Award nominations; "White Palace," starring Susan Sarandon and James Spader, directed by Luis Mandoki; and "Once Around," starring Richard Dreyfuss, Holly Hunter, Danny Aiello and Gena Rowlands, directed by Lasse Hallstrbm.

On television, Dunne's credits as an actor include "Love Matters" (which received a CableACE nomination), John Hersey's "The Wall," "Trying Times" (with Carrie Fisher, directed by Buck Henry) and "Lip Service."

On stage, Dunne has appeared in two Wallace Shawn plays-"The Hotel Play" and "Marie and Bruce" (both at the New York Shakespeare Festival)-as well as in Ted Talley's "Coming Attractions" at Playwrights Horizons. Dunne last appeared on Broadway in Howard Korder's "Search and Destroy," for which he received a Theatre World Award and was nominated for a Drama Desk Award.
