Born Douglas Bourne in Brooklyn in 1970, Doug E. Doug emerged in the 1990s as a triple-threat actor, writer, and director, with a particular flair for comedy. Best known in feature films for his acting work in Cool Runnings (1993), he also became a television star during the second half of the decade on Cosby, the sitcom starring Bill Cosby, which ran from 1996 until 2000. For four years, he and Cosby in their scenes together comprised one of the funniest comedy double acts seen on television, his innocent yet conniving Griffin Vesey making the perfect foil to Cosby's ill-tempered curmudgeon Hilton Lucas; another highlight of his portrayal (and a clever "in" joke referring back to his work in Cool Runnings) were Griffin's occasional attempts to impress women by passing himself off as a West Indian, affecting a Jamaican accent. Doug later wrote, produced, directed, and starred in the spoof Citizen James (2000). In 2002, he portrayed Harlan, the comically paranoid radio personality in Eight Legged Freaks.
