His television debut was a guest appearance in an episode of Just the Ten of Us in 1988. It wasn't until in 1992 that he followed that up playing Mitchell Burkitt in a Law & Order episode. During the next three years, Graham did a handful of films and made-for-TV movies including the crime dramedy Money for Nothing (1993) with John Cusack and Benicio Del Toro. While primarily recognized as a TV actor, he has added several film credits to his name including the action thrillers Rancid (2004) and Assault on Precinct 13 (2005), alongside Oscar-nominated actors Laurence Fishburne and Ethan Hawke and Golden Globe winner Gabriel Bryne.

On television, Graham has commonly played characters in a position of power and authority. Among the notable roles that he has portrayed are Lt. Thomas Bale, the station commander of the 15th squad in the final season of NYPD Blue, Ed Ferrara, the boss of Lynette Scavo (Felicity Huffman) at an advertising agency on Desperate Housewives, Police Supervisor Richard Ellis on Men in Trees, and ADA Frank Ginsberg on Boston Legal. In 2008, Currie went back to his hometown of Hamilton, Ontario to film the TV mini-series drama Would Be Kings, in which he starred opposite Natasha Henstridge and played the straight-arrow investigator Patrick Lahane. In 2009, he teamed up once again with Steven Bochco on the TNT legal drama Raising the Bar.
