Christopher Shannon Chris Penn was born, in Los Angeles, California on October 10, 1965 to Leo Chris Penn, actor /director, and Eileen Ryan, actress. Chris had a couple older brothers Michael, musician, and Sean, actor.

Chris’ family is of Spanish descent as "Piñón" was the family's original surname.

Chris Penn was never out of the lime light for long; supporting three career highs from the mid 1980s until the early 2000’s. His comfort zone was quickly found, clichéd parts, such as the best friend ("Footloose," "All the Right Moves"), or the town bully ("Pale Rider"). Chris Penn used his abilities to make each part unique and memorable. Chris Chris Penn’s greatest role ever is “Short Cuts", in which he played a pool cleaner, being driven to the brink because of his wife's work.

Chris Penn excelled in a couple movies that didn't achieve their potential, "Mulholland Falls" and "The Funeral," although, Chris won a Best Supporting Actor award at the Venice Film Festival for the latter role. Chris Penn has an uncommonly high percentage of films that are cult classics, these are movies that may not have high box-office ratings, but in the end the movies are seen constantly in DVD format or on late night television.

Chris Penn made a cameo appearance on a hip TV show Entourage, while voicing in the hippest video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, a bad cop and Samuel L. Jackson's partner.

"… but Chris Penn does this other thing - he makes you seamlessly believe in characters so much you barely even notice them... Sean is a showboat, a scenery chewer; Chris is the opposite - a stealth bomb." wrote Cintra Wilson.

Chris was not only good, but also unusual as Cintra Wilson eloquently identified one of the reasons. "Chris is an expert at the one complicated emotional state..." .
