Can you display data from a single row in multiple rows using a GridView?

I am currently displaying 3 fields in a gridview and it looks something like this:

First Name  Last Name  Age
========  ========  ===
Chris          Messineo    40
John           Smith         35
Tim            Jones         30
I need to modify the gridview and display a bio, but I want it to display on 1 full line below each line, like this:
First Name  Last Name  Age
========  ========  ===
Chris          Messineo    40
Chris was born in a log cabin...
John           Smith         35
At the age of 10 John invented...
Tim            Jones         30
Mr. Jones was always a curious child...
Is this even possible in a GridView?  And if so, any suggestions on where to start?
Thanks a lot,
Chris Messineo
p.s.  I still need to have sorting and paging work, although I do not need to sort on the bio info.

Dear, friend:

According to your scenario. i recommend you to create a FormView with two Rows. You can put the general GridView into the first row and put a Literal control in the second row for displaying the bio info

I hope the above information will be helpful. If you have any issues or concerns, please let me know. It's my pleasure to be of assistance

Thanks for the suggestion, but I'm not sure it answers my question?  If I understand your answer, it would only give me the info for 1 person, but I need it for mulitple people.

So, I am still wondering, Is it possible to do this using a GridView?

Gridview row 0 selected, but data for row+1 is displayed... ??
Hello. Here's a rather interesting dilemma--hopefully easy to solve? Though I'm stumped for the moment, so any help will be greatly appreciated. I have a gridview with master records listed. The records are acquired using L2S and a sproc that applies Row_Number() to the results for custom paging. The resultset looks fine. It binds to the gridview as expected (displaying data for rows 1 through 5). Each master record has a "select" column to allow the user to select which master record to display in the detail record view. When select is clicked, the child records are&...
