Graziadei, who joined the cast of “Y&R” in 2004 and nominated for two Daytime Emmy awards and one ‘Soap Opera Digest Award, has had time to work on guest star appearances in such shows as “Castle”, “Criminal Minds” which gave him the chance to work with former “Y&R” star, Shemar Moore, and “90210″. Graziadei also has several film roles under his belt, which includes: “Into the Blue 2: The Reef”, and “The Outsider”, which is in post production.
