Chris is supporting his friend Jessica Sherman to find a cure for breast cancer. Up until tomorrow, you can bid on several merchandising goodies and industry profesional meetings to raise money for this charity. You can find all the pertinent information on the Cause for Entertainment website at causeforentertainment.com.
Wishing him all the best on his 34th birthday today.
Chris is credited as a cast member for the movie Nostalgia, starring Jon Hamm, Ellen Burstyn and — Joan of Arcadia fans listen up — Amber Tamblyn. You can watch the trailer on YouTube. The film premiered at the Palm Springs International Film Festival on January 6, 2018. It was released in theaters in the US on February 16, 2018. No date for a home entertainment release is known yet.
On a different note, Chris tweeted a while ago that he was going to be on the HBO TV show Barry, but we can report he’s not in the pilot. Unfortunately, we don’t know at this time which episode(s) he will appear in.
Jordan Hoffman has written a great and very honest article for Thrillist that sheds light on what really went on behind the scenes of the 2009 movie Fanboys, in which Chris Marquette plays one of the lead roles. The movie’s production and release has a somewhat sordid history that resulted in a final cut of the film that is less than a compromise, and only a fraction of the ode to Star Wars and its fans that it could have been.
We very much recommend you delve into the story behind Fanboys in Jordan’s article, which is peppered with interview snippets from cast and crew attached to the movie — a very interesting read, to say the least! Makes us proud that we were among those actively fighting Darth Weinstein back in the day.
