Tyrone Giordano (born 1976) is a deaf American actor.
An alumnus of Montgomery Blair High School and Gallaudet University, he began acting in Washington, DC. He was a member of a small troupe of Deaf and hearing actors when the opportunity came up to participate in a production of The Miracle Worker, his first major role. In 1999, Giordano had obtained his BA in English from Gallaudet University; by September 2001, he played the lead in Big River, which originated with Deaf West Theatre, in Los Angeles. He was a member of the Kappa Gamma fraternity in Gallaudet.
To date, he has been in three plays, one musical, and three Hollywood productions. Big River was a hit in Los Angeles; its second run was at the Taper Forum. Big River made its debut on Broadway at the American Airlines Theatre in the summer of 2003, with some of its original cast members. Giordano remained with Big River for most of its year-long national tour (June 2004-June 2005) as well as its run in Japan, leaving only to complete filming on The Family Stone, in which he plays the gay deaf brother of lead actor Dermot Mulroney. He also plays the deaf brother of Ashton Kutcher's character in the 2005 film A Lot Like Love and can also be seen in 2008's Untraceable starring Diane Lane. He is currently in a Broadway revival of Pippin at the Mark Taper Forum.
