You might know him best from his work on ABC's Grey's Anatomy or more recently as Cyrus Beene on the network's dramatic hit Scandal, but Highland Park native Jeff Perry has been working stages and screens for decades.

Since co-founding Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre Company with school pals Terry Kinney and Gary Sinese in the 70s, Perry (who was once married to Steppenwolf ensemble member Laurie Metcalf) has performed in Chicago and elsewhere, including on Broadway and internationally, in such works as Tracey Letts's Pulitzer and Tony winning August Osage County, Steve Martin's Picasso at the Lapin Agile and John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath. He also pops up occasionally on the big-screen, with roles in such films as Wild Things and The Human Stain.

At the League of Chicago Theatres 2013 spring gala, on May 20, Perry will accept the 2013 Tribute Award "for his extraordinary contributions to Chicago theatre."
