Personal life

Marquette was born Christopher George Rodríguez in Stuart, Florida, the son of Patricia Helen "Tisha" (née Market) and Jorge Luis "George" Rodriguez, a nuclear engineer.[1] Marquette has two younger brothers, actors Eric Marquette and Sean Marquette. He supports charities such as the Sunshine Kids Foundation (to grant wishes of seriously ill, handicapped and abused children), Pediatric AIDS, and the Children's AIDS Fund.

Career

In 2004, he starred alongside actors Emile Hirsch and Elisha Cuthbert in the coming-of-age teen comedy The Girl Next Door. The same year, he became a series regular on the CBS show Joan of Arcadia opposite Amber Tamblyn and Jason Ritter (with whom Marquette co-starred with in the 2003 slasher film Freddy vs. Jason) before Joan of Arcadia's cancellation in early 2005.

Marquette was also given a supporting role in Just Friends with Ryan Reynolds, Amy Smart, Anna Faris and Chris Klein. In 2007's Alpha Dog, Marquette can be seen as Keith Stratten alongside Emile Hirsch, Justin Timberlake and Ben Foster. The Invisible, a remake of a Swedish film, starring Marcia Gay Harden and Justin Chatwin, was released on April 27, 2007, in which Christopher plays the best friend of main character Nick Powell. He has also had supporting/minor roles in the films 61* with Barry Pepper and Thomas Jane, and the Disney Channel original TV movie Up, Up and Away! with Robert Townsend.

Among Marquette's recent movies is Fanboys, in which he plays obsessed Star Wars fan Linus Poonwah. Fanboys was shot in spring 2006 in New Mexico, and also stars Sam Huntington, Dan Fogler, Jay Baruchel and Veronica Mars' Kristen Bell. Another of his acting projects is an independent movie called The Education of Charlie Banks, which was directed by Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst. Whether on purpose or not, Chris frequently appears in movies with a group of actors including Emile Hirsch, Paul Dano, Amanda Seyfried and Nikki Reed. Coming up for Marquette is Infestation, an action comedy by Kyle Rankin, that was shot in summer 2007 in Bulgaria, in which he plays the lead role--a young man named Cooper who has to fight for survival against giant alien insects that have taken over the world. One of his latest projects was Race To Witch Mountain, a modern-day reimagining of Disney's 1975 movie Escape To Witch Mountain in which Marquette played the character of Pope--a computer specialist out of MIT, helping the bad guys. Marquette starred alongside Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Tom Everett Scott and Ciaran Hinds; the film was released March 2009.

Marquette can also been seen as a guest star or regular on several TV shows, such as Strong Medicine, ER, Touched by an Angel, 7th Heaven, Miracles, Boston Public and Judging Amy. The latest guest roles include the Showtime TV series Huff; Christopher played James, a friend of Byrd's (Anton Yelchin, whom he also played alongside in Alpha Dog), in episodes Sweet Release, Bethless and Tapping The Squid (all aired 2006).
