John Christian "Chris" Miller was born in Brooklyn in 1942 and grew up in Roslyn, NY on Long Island. Miller is an American author and screenwriter, most notable for his work on National Lampoon magazine and the movie Animal House. He had a bit part as Curtis Wayne "Hardbar" Fuller (identified in the film as wearing a wool cap and scarf), credited as Christian Miller. His experiences in the Alpha Delta Phi fraternity at Dartmouth College inspired much of Animal House. Chris was a 1963 graduate of Dartmouth where he majored in English and subsequently received his MBA from the Tuck School of Business in 1964 under Dartmouth's accelerated 3-2 plan. After college he wrote copy and produced commercials at Dancer-Fitzgerald-Sample advertising firm. In 1970, by his own words, he "dropped out of the straight world" and began writing short stories about his college experiences ("Night of the Seven Fires") which were published in National Lampoon. After the film came out, Miller moved to Los Angeles in 1981 to pursue movie projects. He wrote the screenplay for Multiplicity, starring Michael Keaton. He married in 1985, fathered a son, Jack, in 1986, and is now divorced, living in Venice, California. His ex-wife later committed suicide. In 2006, he published a memoir The Real Animal House: The Awesomely Depraved Saga of the Fraternity That Inspired the Movie, about his experiences at Alpha Delta Phi that were the basis for many Animal House scenes.
