Eddie Griffin was raised in Kansas City, Missouri by his single mother who worked as an operator in a ‘phone company. Following graduation from high school, Eddie entered Kansas State University to major at biological engineering yet he dropped out three months later. In 1991, he debuted as the main cast member in the action film “The Last Boy Scout” (1991) directed by Tony Scott. The film received mixed reviews although Griffin was then invited to star alongside Robert Townsend and Marla Gibbs in the comedy film “The Meteor Man” (1993) directed, co-produced and written by Robert Townsend.

Positive reviews were received by the ensemble of the Doug McHenry film “Jason’s Lyric” (1994), in which Eddie Griffin was also listed. Then Griffin landed the lead role in the film “The Walking Dead” (1995) directed by Preston A. Whitmore II. Starring in the box office hit “Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo” (1999) directed by Mike Mitchell also added a significant sum to the total size of Eddie Griffin’s net worth. The main roles Griffin has landed in other films include “Foolish” (1999) directed by Dave Meyers, “Double Take” (2001) directed by George Gallo and “Undercover Brother” (2002) directed by Malcolm D.
