Blake Cooper Griffin is lining up his 2015 slate with a number of notable breakout roles both on television and in film. Currently he can be seen opposite Academy Award Winner Cuba Gooding Jr. in the drama feature LIFE OF A KING available on Netflix; May 1st he hits the big screen with Academy Award Winner Helen Hunt in her feature directorial debut RIDE; taking a step on the lighter side, Griffin also joins the cast of Disney’s sensational hit sitcom JESSIE for its final season.
Last but certainly not least, Griffin will lend his name to the feature length adaptation of the critically acclaimed, award winning short film LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED? from writer/ director Kim Rocco Shields. Taking place in a world where homosexuality is normal and heteros, aka “breeders,” are frowned upon, the film tackles the heart wrenching topic of bullying on an epic scale in today’s youth and millennial age groups.
Blake’s charm quickly took over the television screen when he began landing roles on a slew of notable prime-time television series including an almost unrecognizable turn as bad boy ‘Trent Rogers’ on USA Network’s NECESSARY ROUGHNESS, GREEK, LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT, MAD LOVE, 90210 and NCIS: LOS ANGELES. On the big screen, Griffin has appeared in the DJ Caruso directed film STANDING UP, starring Val Kilmer, SPREAD with Ashton Kutcher and the Academy Award Winning feature MILK.
A South Carolina native, Griffin, is a graduate of the North Carolina School of the Arts, School of Drama, where he trained to become an accomplished acting professional. He currently resides in Los Angeles with his dog.
