Born: 9-May-1961
Birthplace: Wheeling, WV

Gender: Male
Religion: Born-Again Christian
Race or Ethnicity: White
Sexual orientation: Straight
Occupation: Actor

Nationality: United States
Executive summary: Chris the DJ on Northern Exposure

Corbett was raised Catholic, in West Virginia, where he was the first person in his family to finish high school. At 19, he had his first film role, in the abysmal Robert Hays comedy Utilities. Mostly, though, Corbett worked in a steel factory, until an injury cost him that job. He has since cornered the market on "sensitive guy" roles, appearing as a fiancÚ in My Big Fat Greek Wedding, a priest in Raising Helen, Sarah Jessica Parker's boyfriend on Sex and the City, and Chris, the moody DJ on Northern Exposure. He hosted The Love Chronicles on A&E, offering "a sociological, scientific and historical look at the rituals and traditions surrounding love, courtship and marriage".
