Biography

Versatile actor Michael A. Goorjian began tackling screen assignments in the early '90s (when the actor was in his early twenties) -- typically bit roles in A-list Hollywood features. His resumé includes brief appearances in such films as Chaplin (1992), Leaving Las Vegas (1995), Hard Rain (1998), and Conversations with God (2006). On the small screen, Goorjian had a recurring role in the early '90s on the family drama Life Goes On as Ray Nelson and a supporting role as Justin Thompson on another popular family drama, Party of Five (from 1994 to 2000). Goorjian debuted as a writer/director/performer with the Kirk Douglas weeper Illusion (2004), about a film director (Douglas) forced to review the "footage" from his dysfunctional life -- and face the knowledge that he singlehandedly destroyed the life of his illegitimate son (Goorjian). ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
