Christopher Collet (//; born March 13, 1968) is an American actor who is perhaps best known for his portrayal of Jake Livingston in the 1984 movie Firstborn and for his lead role in the 1986 film The Manhattan Project.
Collet decided to enter show business during his teens and acquired an agent. His first film role was "Paul" in the 1983 horror Sleepaway Camp. Collet remained in touch with his co-star Jonathan Tiersten and they auditioned together for shows. Collet eventually landed the role of "Neil Oxley" in the 1984 CBS after school special Welcome Home Jellybean. Following this success Collet landed numerous roles in television and film including "Jake Livingston" in Firstborn, "Richard Jahnke Jr." in the 1985 TV film Right to Kill?, "Paul Stephens" in the 1986 film The Manhattan Project, and "Albert Kaussner" in the 1995 Stephen King miniseries The Langoliers. His television appearances include guest roles on Magnum P.I., The Cosby Show, The Hitchhiker (1983), The Equalizer (1985), L.A. Law (1986), and MacGyver (1985). He also starred in several Broadway theatre productions. Collet has also been the voice director for many 4Kids television productions, and voiced the character of Orbot in the video game Sonic Unleashed.
Two of the stars of Sex and the City have played his girlfriend: Sarah Jessica Parker in Firstborn, and Cynthia Nixon in The Manhattan Project. Collet and co-star Cynthia Nixon were both attending Hunter College High School at the time they filmed The Manhattan Project.
Collet met his wife Nicole Dooley in 1998 when they played husband and wife on an episode of Silk Stalkings. Both are Pilates instructors and co-own The Pilates Boutique in Brooklyn, New York. They have one son, Julien.
