Christopher "Chris" Eigeman (born March 1, 1965) is an American actor and a film director.
Eigeman was born in Denver, Colorado, in 1965. He attended The Putney School, Putney, Vermont, from 1979 to 1983, and graduated from Kenyon College, Gambier, Ohio, with a Bachelor of Arts in English and Theatre in 1987. He has been married to Linda D. Eigeman since 1993. They have a son, born in 2008.

In 1992, Eigeman filmed a pilot for an American version of the British cult sci-fi television show Red Dwarf, playing the part of Arnold Rimmer; however, the show was not picked up as a series. During the mid-1990s, he appeared in a series of television advertisements for Pacific Bell that highlighted his sarcastic, straight-ahead delivery. In these spots, Eigeman always appeared in dark suit and tie, regardless of the situation.
