Metairie, Louisiana, U.S.
Graham Patrick Martin (born November 14, 1991) is an American film and television actor.
He is best known for his recurring role as Eldridge on Two and a Half Men (2010–12) and former teen hustler Rusty Beck on the series finale of The Closer and in its spinoff series, Major Crimes (2012–2018). Martin also portrayed Bill Engvall's eldest son in the sitcom The Bill Engvall Show (2007–09).
Martin attended Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School in New York City. When asked, in a TNT Newsroom interview, to describe himself, he responded: "I'm a New Yorker from New Orleans who lives in Los Angeles."
When asked what inspired him to act, Martin shared that his older sister was the first in his family to become interested in acting. Martin, his two brothers, and sister attended a performing arts summer camp called French Woods, where:
"I went for the water sports and horseback riding, but I somehow ended up auditioning for my first play while I was there. I was eight years old at the time, and I was cast in my first musical The King and I. I did three musicals every summer at French Woods, until I was fifteen. The other influence was Leonardo DiCaprio. I saw Titanic in kindergarten and decided I wanted to be just like him."
