Cris Judd biography (bio):
Cristan Lee Judd is an American actor and choreographer, but is probably best known for his failed marriage to Jennifer Lopez.
Before Hollywood, Judd spent his early years growing up on Air Force bases in Angeles City in the Philippines and Hawaii. His mother is Filipino, his Father is White. The Air Force then moved his family to Niceville, Florida, where he attended high school. While in Florida, Judd, an avid athlete, spent a lot of time surfing and golfing. With a golf handicap of four, he even considered going pro after graduation, but instead decided to go to college. While in college, he landed his first job at Disney World with friend and colleague, Wayne Brady.
At age 21 Judd became interested in dance. Within a year, he switched jobs and began dancing professionally with Disney. He was hired to dance with Michael Jackson for the 1995 MTV Video Music Awards and then danced with Jackson on both the Dangerous and History tours, eventually becoming lead dancer for the tour. In 1999, he performed at the Billboard Music Awards with Celine Dion, the MTV Music Awards with N'SYNC, and in 2000 at the American Music Awards with Enrique Iglesias and Brian McKnight, and for "Best Song" nominee That Thing You Do at the 69th Annual Academy Awards. Judd also teamed up for the first time with choreographer Eddie Garcia, a collaboration that continues to this day, to choreograph the 2000 Tour for Jordan Knight.
Since that time, Judd has danced in and choreographed numerous music videos including My Way for Usher, Jump, Jive, & Wail for the Brian Setzer Orchestra, If I Could Go for Angie Martinez and Tango for Julio Iglesias. He also directed the music video, Ain't It Funny-Remix, with Ja Rule. Judd then became creative director for Handprint Entertainment, overseeing a $5 million budget and delivering NBC's concert special "Let's Get Loud."
Judd has also composed music. His first song, "Alive," was selected as the theme song for the movie Enough (Sony Music/Columbia Pictures).
Judd recently guest-starred on Unfabulous with Emma Roberts, has appeared on Eve, Half and Half, and Everybody Loves Raymond, and in Bringing Down the House where he also served as choreographer for Steve Martin's dance scenes.
He met future wife Jennifer Lopez in Spain when he was hired to direct her music video for "Love Don't Cost a Thing". They were married on September 29, 2001. The marriage ended in June 2002.
Selected as one of People Magazine's "25 Hottest Bachelors" and InTouch Magazine's "20 Hottest Hunks," his television debut was on "I'm a Celebrity - Get Me Out of Here." He beat out all the other contestants, earning $200,000 for the Make-a-Wish Foundation when he was crowned "King of the Jungle" in a viewer vote.
Judd and his partner Eddie Garcia produced an interactive dance DVD released in summer 2005, and has prepared the Midnight Fantasy musical for the Luxor Resort in Las Vegas.
Judd recently finished filming the role of Elliot in Goyband.
