Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

Dubbed "the WASP Woody Allen," Gray began his acting career in New York during the 1970s, and debuted as a monologist late in the decade, first performing the autobiographical work, "Sex and Death to the Age of 14," about growing up in Rhode Island. Later cast as the aide to an American ambassador in The Killing Fields (1984), Gray used the experience as material for his four-hour performance piece "Swimming to Cambodia," which was filmed in 1987 by Jonathan Demme and became an arthouse hit. As a result, Gray's stock has gone up, and he has appeared as a character actor in a number of films, including True Stories (1986), Beaches, Clara's Heart (both 1988), Straight Talk (1992), The Pickle, King of the Hill, Twenty Bucks (all 1993), The Paper (1994), Bad Company and Beyond Rangoon (both 1995). He also appeared on Broadway as the Stage Manager in an acclaimed revival of Thornton Wilder's "Our Town" in the early 1990s. He came to the screen in another filmed monologue, Monster in a Box in 1992. Gray, a cofounder of the experimental Wooster Theatre Group in the late 1970s, also took some unorthodox acting jobs in his salad days: He had a major role in a hard-core sex film,The Farmer's Daughter he was billed under his own name and given extensive dialogue, making identification positiveeven though he later denied having appeared in the film.
