Graham Patrick Martin is currently starring in the indie film “Somewhere Slow,” which recently screened at Cinequest Film Festival, Omaha Film Festival and the Vail Film Festival. He also co-stars in the TNT series “Major Crimes,” opposite Mary McDonnell. Martin has recurred on the last three seasons of the hit comedy “Two and A Half Men,” alongside both Charlie Sheen and Ashton Kutcher, playing the son of Courtney Thorne-Smith and the best friend of Angus T. Jones.
Martin was born in Thibodaux, Louisiana. At the age of eight, he attended French Woods Festival of the Performing Arts summer camp, where he began his acting career on the stage. He has since performed in over 25 musical and dramatic stage productions. In 2003, Martin was cast in his first professional role in Christopher Durang’s “Mrs. Bob Cratchit’s Wild Christmas Binge,” for which he was nominated for Best Performance by a Child Actor at the Big Easy Awards. In 2004, he played a supporting role in Tennessee Williams’ “A House Not Meant to Stand.”
In 2005, Martin relocated to New York City, where his focus shifted from theatre to film and television. Initial commercial work soon led to a guest-starring role on “Law & Order: Criminal Intent.” All the while, he was training at Fiorello H. Laguardia High School for Music and Performing Arts.
After expanding his resume, Martin moved to the west coast in 2007, landing a role at his very first Los Angeles audition to play a series regular on the TBS sitcom “The Bill Engvall Show.” He played the son of Bill Engvall and Nancy Travis, and brother to Jennifer Lawrence. This role earned Martin a Young Artist Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Comedy Series.
Martin has guest-starred on numerous television shows, including “The Closer”, “Law & Order: Criminal Intent”, “Love Bites”, “iCarly”, “Good Luck Charlie and Jonas.” He has also appeared in several indie films, including Jack Ketchum’s “The Girl Next Door” and “Rising Stars.”
Recently Martin wrapped filming on “Bukowksi,” James Franco’s directorial debut and biopic of the late writer, Charles Bukowski, set for a 2014 release.
Martin lives in Los Angeles.
