Chris Penn started acting at the age of 11, and continued on with a successful career in acting typically cast as the tough guy, and often a villain. His most memorable roles were in the movies “The Funeral” and “Reservoir Dogs”. He acted on television and also did voice work for some video games.
He died suddenly at the age of 40. Although he had used drugs in his life, his cause of death was ruled from heart disease primarily due to his weight.
Tribute created by:
I have fond memories of Christopher. Both he and his brother Sean are (were) great actors and Christopher's talent was not to be taken lightly. Anyone (John Thomas) who would use a memorial page to say something cruel is obviously low in intelligence and suffers from extreme inadequecies.
Two thumbs up to the Sean brothers!!!

I recall him in Best of the Best, his part reminded me of how he was in real life; arrogant just like his idiot brother. I know Sean from Mystic River. I reme,ber Chrissie fought like a girl in the BotB movie. He was never quite the star his brother was; I guess he didn't suck as good as his brother or he would have got the better roles
