Grant later portrayed Joe Pitt, the troubled Mormon in the original Broadway production of Tony Kushner's Angels in America: Millennium Approaches and its companion piece Angels in America: Perestroika.

He made his film debut as a college student spending his junior year abroad in the teen comedy French Postcards and attracted attention opposite Kevin Costner as the younger and more reckless of two bicycling brothers in American Flyers.
