Griffin Patrick O'Neal (born October 28, 1964) is an American actor. O'Neal was born in Los Angeles, California, the son of actor Ryan O'Neal and actress Joanna Cook Moore (née Dorothy Cook). He has one sister, Tatum, and two half brothers, Patrick and Redmond. Griffin has appeared in films including The Escape Artist, April Fool's Day, Assault of the Killer Bimbos, and Ghoulies III. O'Neal married Rima Belinda Uranga in 1989 and divorced two years later after having daughter, Dillan O'Neal. Like many of his family members, O'Neal has struggled with substance abuse. In 1986 a boating accident in Annapolis, Maryland took the life of Francis Ford Coppola's son Gian-Carlo Coppola. O'Neal, who was driving the boat, attempted to pass between two slow-moving boats, failing to realize that the two boats were connected by a towline. While he barely had time to duck, Coppola was struck, throwing his body to the metal deck, sustaining head injuries.
