Dominic Hoffman is an actor. He is known for his recurring roles on A Different World as Whitley's boyfriend, Julian Day, and Grey's Anatomy as Dr. Jeff Russell. He is also an accomplished theater actor and playwright, earning Ovation awards in 2000 for his one-man show "Uncle Jacques' Symphony," a play that celebrates humanity as a musical metaphor. Its participants are a group of singular characters, all performed by Hoffman, with minimal alteration, played to maximum effect. Men and women, young and old, of different cultures and beliefs vividly come together on stage for ninety minutes. Their personal rhythms, unique harmonies, and the familiar melody of their stories combine to form a symphony of life. Ovation awards for best actor in a play, writing, and best world premiere. Voice: Dominic is a four-time winner of the Audiophile Earphones Award for his readings of “The Port Chicago 50” (2014 National Book Award Finalist), “An Ordinary Man,” “The Last Days of Ptolemy Gray,” and “In Search of Our Roots.” His reading of “The Door of No Return” was selected by the School Library Journal as an Audio Hot Pick.
