Chanchez grew up in Montgomery and Atlanta, Georgia, along with his two brothers; he attended Montgomery’s Sidney Lanier High School. During his childhood years he spent much of his time in his grandmother’s recording studio, soon expressing an interest in singing; however, by the age of 10, he had switched his focus to acting. After his matriculation, he moved to California, and began working as a car salesman. He took some acting classes and eventually found an agent to help him launch his professional acting career; he soon began landing parts in numerous commercial gigs.

In 1998 Chanchez was cast in the television sitcom “For Your Love”, with the recurring role of ‘Delivery Guy’/Charlie. This was his entrance in the world of television, that made him recognized by American audiences and enabled him to land numerous other television parts. In 2004 he had a recurring role in the series “What Should You Do?” and appeared in the series “The Guardian” and “Jack & Bobby”. The following year saw him in series such as “NCIS”, “Over There”, “Close to Home” and “Everwood”, showcasing his talent and paving his way to more meaningful roles that awaited for him. His wealth began to grow.

One of these roles came in 2006, when he was cast in the CW/BET popular television comedy/drama series “The Game”, a spinoff of the UPN/CW sitcom “Girlfriends”, in which Chanchez also appeared earlier that year. In “The Game”, Chanchez played the lead role of a professional football player named Malik Wright for nine seasons, until the series’ cancellation in 2015. The show enabled him to enjoy an increasing popularity with audiences, reinforcing his status in the acting world. It earned him a Best Actor in a Comedy Series NAACP Image Award nomination, and significantly improved his net worth.

In the meantime, Chanchez made himself busy with other projects, with appearances in the series “The Shield”, and the recurring role of Mauler Twins in the series “Invincible”.

He made his film debut in 2010, with the role of Ricky in the film “The Cost of Heaven”. The following year he played Officer Grooms in the drama/thriller film “96 Minutes”, and then portrayed the character of Jamal in the comedy/drama film “Dysfunctional Friends” in 2012. A year later, he appeared as David Jackson in the TV film “Let the Church Say Amen”. All contributed to his wealth.

Aside from film and television, the actor has also been involved in theater productions, having appeared in “Shop Life”, “The Long Walk Home”, “Royal Oats and Glory” and “The Wiz”.

Chanchez currently plays Emile Fisher in the TNT television police procedural series “Major Crimes”. He is also making his directorial debut with the film “Ruth”, on which he has been working for the past nine years. Additionally, Chanchez is the founder and CEO of Kelp Productions, his newly launched movie production company.

Speaking about his personal life, in 2008 Chanchez married Robin Williams, and divorced her in 2009. That same year, he married Tika Sumpter, with whom he worked in “The Game”, but they divorced two years later. Sources are unaware of his current relationship status.

The actor has been actively involved in philanthropy; in 2013 he founded a non-profit organization called Watch Me Win, focused on encouraging youth to succeed.
