Among the plays in which he appeared were "The Greek Trilogy," "The Good Woman of Szechuan" and "The Cherry Orchard" at Lincoln Center and many New York Shakespeare Festival productions, including "Measure for Measure," "Twelfth Night" and "The Taming of the Shrew." He also appeared in several movies, including "The Hudsucker Proxy" and "Basic Instinct," and was seen on television in "Murphy Brown, "The Kennedys of Massachusetts" and other programs. Mr. Duff-Griffin, whose original name was William Joseph Duffy, was born in New York City. He worked briefly as an economic analyst before changing careers."
