Brian Thomas Grazer (born July 12, 1951) is an Academy Award-winning American film and television producer who founded Imagine Entertainment in 1986 with partner Ron Howard. Together they have produced many acclaimed films, including A Beautiful Mind and Apollo 13.



Grazer also produced the 2002 film 8 Mile, the live-action version of the holiday classic How the Grinch Stole Christmas! (2000), Spike Lee's 2006 crime-thriller Inside Man, and Ridley Scott's American Gangster (2007), which was nominated for two Academy Awards. His producing credits also include the films Changeling and Frost/Nixon. He is the executive producer of 24, Lie to Me, Arrested Development and Friday Night Lights.

Grazer appeared as himself on The Simpsons twice; in "When You Dish Upon a Star", he received movie ideas from Ron Howard, and in "Lost Verizon" where he offered Denis Leary a job for Everyone Poops.

In March 2007, Grazer was slated to guest edit a special Sunday section of the Los Angeles Times before the newspaper's publisher canceled its press run in wake of a scandal that ultimately led to the resignation of editorial page editor Andrés Martinez. In May 2007, Grazer was listed among Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People in The World.

On "The Dream Team", the July 15, 2007 episode of Entourage, Grazer made a brief cameo appearance as himself.
