He played Deputy Bobby Michan in Mystery Alaska and appeared in A Beautiful Mind, both starring Crowe. Other notable film credits includes Flags of our Fathers, Earth To Echo, The Miracle Season, Caroline and Jackie, Lonely Hearts, and Summer Of '84.

Notable television appearances range from his roles on Monday Mornings, Grey's Anatomy, Justified, The X-Files, Bones, and both NCIS and Stargate franchises; as well as the series Republic Of Doyle and the hit Amazon Prime Video series The Boys.

Among his many voice-over performances, Gray-Stanford voiced the role of Donatello in Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation and was the voice of Sherlock Holmes in Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century.

Personal life[edit]

In 2018, Gray-Stanford was diagnosed with heart failure, which was controlled for several years with medications and other treatments. In November 2020, he underwent a successful heart transplant.
