Christopher grew up in a family of four children in his hometown. Having two sisters and a brother wasn`t always easy for him to get the attention he wanted, and therefore he began to perform rodeo stunts as a child, since his father was already in the business. Furthermore, he started to act when he was only four years old, in an episode of the TV series “Brian Keith Show”. When it comes to his education, he matriculated from Saugus High School in 1984, and then enrolled at the National Conservatory for Drama Arts.

Howell`s acting career began in the early 1980s, with the role of Tyler in Steven Spielberg`s hit film “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” (1982). Since then, he has appeared in more than 180 film and TV titles, which represents the main source of his net worth. Through the 1980s, he appeared in several films in the lead role, including “The Outsiders” (1983), “Secret Admirer” (1985), and “Young Toscanini” (1989), among others, all of which added to his net worth.

He emerged into the 1990s as a young and talented actor, so it was quite easy for him to acquire new roles, and through the decade he made appearances in films such as “Acting on Impulse” (1993) with Linda Fiorentino and Nancy Allen, “Gettysburg” in the same year starring Tom Berenger and Stephen Lang, and three years later he appeared in the lead role of the film “Baby Face Nelson”, with Lisa Zane and Doug Wert. He also appeared in the TV series “Kindred: The Embraced” (1996), and before the 1990s ended, Howell`s net worth was also increased with appearances in “Laws of Deception” (1997), “Sleeping Dogs” (1998), and “The Glass Jar” (1999).

Thomas continued successfully into the 2000s, adding new roles to his name, and as a result increasing further his net worth. Some of his most popular appearances included films such as “Hidalgo” (2004) with Viggo Mortensen and Omar Sharif, “War Of The Worlds” (2005), “Hoboken Hollow” (2006), and “Fighting Words” (2007).
To speak further of his accomplishments in the entertainment industry as an actor, Thomas has more recently appeared in the films “The Amazing Spider-Man” (2012), “An Amish Murder” (2013) with Neve Cambell and Noam Jenkins, and “Beast Mode” (2015). He has been selected for the cast of several films, including “The Shadow People”, “My B.F.F.”, “LBJ”, and “Blue Weekend”, which are yet to be released, but will certainly increase his net worth.

Howell is also recognized as a director, signing his name on films such as “Hourglass” (1995), which was his directorial debut, followed in 1996 by “Pure Danger”, and in 1997 he was the one who directed the film “The Big Fall”. Furthermore, he directed the sequel of the “War Of The Worlds” entitled “War of the Worlds 2: The Next Wave” in 2008, “The Land That Time Forgot” (2009), and “The Genesis Code” (2010).
When it comes to his personal life, Thomas has been married to Sylvie Anderson since 1992; the couple has three children, and currently lives in Stevenson Ranch, California. Thomas was previously married to Rae Dawn Chong, but their marriage lasted only a year ’til 1990.

1[2013] The Hitcher (1986) was a real important film for me as an artist, but more importantly, for me as a person. I was 17 or 18 when I did that movie, just starting to really understand what it was to be an actor. I'd done some movies prior to that where I really was clueless. I had no idea what I was doing on The Outsiders (1983), I had no idea what I was doing in a lot of those movies I did, whether it was Secret Admirer (1985) or Tank (1984) or Grandview, U.S.A. (1984) or A Tiger's Tale (1987). I was just sort of handed a gift at a young age, and I really only knew enough to get into a world of trouble at that point. The Hitcher kind of was a pinnacle for me, because of Rutger Hauer, who's an amazing actor; Jennifer Jason Leigh, who's an award-winning actress and still the most committed actor I've ever worked with to this day; and Jeffrey DeMunn, an incredible guy who has trained more in theater and done some great roles. I was working with these people, who really gave me an opportunity to sit down with each one of them and discuss the craft and how to build a character and how to make choices. At that point, I hadn't really done that. I was just going through the motions, playing these roles of young teenage boys, where the choices are made just by showing up. I mean, you're a young teenage boy, you're playing a young teenage boy. There isn't a whole lot of thinking that goes into that. But The Hitcher was my first step toward adult roles, and the experience of that film is what really made me want to do it for life. It was a time when I was trying to figure out who I was as a human being, as an artist. You're judged so harshly at that point in your life, not only by yourself, but also by your peers. It's a difficult time. Being a teenager really sucks. It's a hard time of life, and I'm about to have two of 'em. I've got one kid who's now 20, but I've got a 16-year-old boy, and I've got a boy who's 12 and just about to step into his teens. I recall my teen years, and I remember that as being the hardest time of my life. You just care so much about what other people think, and it's painful. The Hitcher, for me, was my first step out of that area and into becoming an adult, and I'm so thankful for that role. That experience is one of my favorite experiences in my career, and it's also one of my favorite films.
2[2013, on The Hitcher II: I've Been Waiting (2003)] That was probably a mistake, to be honest. It was mishandled. There was a time when Rutger was involved as well, so I sort of committed with the understanding that that was what was taking place, but then that didn't happen. It was a bit of a mess. The whole thing was just a real mess, and there was nothing I could do at that point. It probably should've never been made. And thankfully, nobody really even knows it exists. I don't even really call it a sequel. It's not really a sequel. It's almost a completely different movie, really.
1After winning the magic-performance Celeb-reality show Celebracadabra (2008) in 2008, he has reprised his show's character, "Cherry", and performing at The Magic Castle in Hollywood, CA.
2Former son-in-law of Tommy Chong.

5He tested for and was nearly cast as Marty McFly in Back to the Future (1985). The role was given to Eric Stoltz. Stoltz was hired initially as first choice Michael J. Fox was committed to his TV show Family Ties; when Fox was allowed to participate, Stoltz was released and then finally, Michael J. Fox got the role.
6In 2003 he was hospitalized for 4 weeks because of a ruptured appendix, a very serious illness, fatal if not treated on time. He lost 45 pounds and surgeons had to take out 3 feet of his intestine among other things in order to save his life. That's the real reason behind his gaunt look in all his movies between 2003 and 2005. As of today he has fully recovered. He's currently working out with a trainer and he has already gained 12 pounds of muscles and his face has filled back. He's also following a strict protein and carbohydrate diet.
