Chris originated the role of Young Jason when he co-starred in the two-hour Universal Home Video Feature "Young Hercules". He went on to guest-star as the character in three episodes of "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" and relocated to New Zealand in May 1998 to reprise his role in the new series.

Born and raised in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, Chris is the third of four boys in a close-knit family. He and his brothers were extremely athletic and excelled in a variety of sports, including football, baseball, basketball, soccer, and judo. His love of performing began in grade school where he was always the class joker, but it wasn't until he improvised a comedy skit in high school that he realized he wanted to become an actor. Following graduation, he enrolled in Florida State University where his two older brothers, Tim and Steve, were also students. He signed up for an acting class in his freshman year, but was quickly turned off by the serious academic tone of the course and dropped out. Later, his acting teacher sought him out on campus and persuaded him to give acting another try. Chris also got a job doing sports on the radio through his brother Tim, who had started his own radio show and was an enormously popular sports broadcaster at Florida State. The job gave Chris another excellent outlet for his comedy. After his sophomore year, Chris decided to leave school and move to Chicago to join his brother Steve, who had transferred to Northwestern to complete his major in creative writing. Chris spent his first year there studying at the Piven Theatre Workshop and, after signing with an agent, landed his first acting role in the television movie, Mario and the Mob, a comedy starring Robert Conrad and Ann Gillian. After moving to L.A., he was cast in an episode of "Raven" and then in a small film called "Star Food". Since then, he has worked steadily in film and television.
