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.
