Graham Patrick Martin- Rusty Beck
Graham Patrick Martin is starring in the indie film Somewhere Slow, which recently screened at Cinequest Film Festival, Omaha Film Festival, and the Vail Film Festival. Graham is also starring as Anna Nicole Smith's tragically-doomed son in the Lifetime movie The Anna Nicole Story, opposite Martin Landau, Cary Elwes, and Agnus Bruckner, airing in June on Lifetime.
Martin has recurred on the last three seasons of the smash hit 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, LA. At the age of 8, 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 Award at the Big Easy Awards. In 2004 he played a supporting role in Tennessee Williams' A House Not Meant to Stand.
Martin relocated to New York City in 2005, where his focus shifted from theatre to film and television. Initial commercial work soon led to a guest-starring role on Law and 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 his very first Los Angeles audition to play a series regular on TBS's multi-camera 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 and 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.
Martin recently wrapped Bukowski, James Franco's directorial debut. It is a biopic of the late writer, Charles Bukowski, and is set for a 2014 release.
