I just saw Spalding as Dr. Jack Miller in a episode of "The Nanny" (a US sitcom). He was a semi regular on the show.

I saw him do "Swimming to Cambodia" at the, now-defunct, "Universal Theatre" in Melbourne about 1986. It was brilliant. The only other one-person show I have seen even come close to it was Whoopee Goldberg's New York shows.

"Swimming to Cambodia" was filmed by Jonathan Demme about 1987. Gray's other monologues, "Terrors of Pleasure('88)", "Monster in a Box('92)", and "Gray's Anatomy('98)" were filmed by his girfriend at the time, Renee Shafransky. Unfortunately as far as I know, his first monologue "Sex and Death to the Age of 14" was never filmed and so only lives in the memories of those lucky enough to see it.

He played the US consul in "The Killing Fields" and had minor roles in "Beaches", "Kate and Leopold" and "The Paper Mache Chase".
