His mother is Vivienne, fourth wife of American television producer and screenwriter, Donald Bellisario, making him Bellisario's stepson.


Murray's television credits include a starring role in the UPN sitcom The Random Years and a supporting role as teenager Zane Grey Hart in CBS's comedy/western series, Harts of the West, with Beau Bridges as his father and Harley Jane Kozak as his mother. Beau Bridges' father, Lloyd Bridges, also starred in the series, but not as a relative of the Harts. The program was set on a dude ranch in Nevada. Mark Harmon, star of NCIS, appeared in a 1993 episode of Harts of the West entitled "The Right Stuff" in the role of a rodeo clown.

Murray has made several television guest appearances, including ER. In addition, Murray has appeared in several feature films including Hocus Pocus (in which he played Thackery Binx), This Boy's Life, and another starring role in Todd Field's Too Romantic.


He is the stepson of Donald Bellisario, NCIS' producer. Murray's mother, Vivienne, is Bellisario's current wife. His brother, Chad W. Murray, works in production on NCIS. His stepbrother, David Bellisario is a producer on NCIS. His stepsister, Troian Bellisario, played Sarah McGee on NCIS.

Murray and his wife, Carrie James, had their first child, a daughter named Caitlyn Melissa Murray, on May 3, 2007.[2]
