Marc grew up as a child actor thanks to his parents, who helped him become a child model and then an actor at the age of five. He steadily became enamoured with acting ,and although it was not really his choice but his parents’, he still eventually chose it as a full-time job and a career. After matriculating from a local high school in New York, Marc decided to completely focus on his acting career, and didn’t enroll at college.

Career as an actor – movies

Marc’s career was officially launched in 1995 when he got to play the lead role in the “Losing Isaiah” movie. His next role came in 2000, when he played Will in “Stuart Little 2” – in the same year, he appeared in “Brown Sugar” and “Friday After Next”.

Marc could have then been seen in “Spiderman 2”, “Get Rich or Die Tryin’”, and “Keeping Up with the Steins” shot in 2004, 2005 and 2006, respectively.

He took a three-year long break after the shooting of “Keeping Up with the Steins” movie was completed, and won his next role in 2009 when he played Lil’ Cease in “Notorious” – six years after that, he played Bunch in “Brotherly Love” in 2015, Wes in “Nerve” in 2016, and “Carlton” in “Chocolate City: Vegas Strip” in 2017 which is also his latest role.

TV series

His debut TV series appearance was in 1995, when he played Kevin Wolfred in the “New York Undercover” detective series – in 1997 he appeared in “Cosby” and “Homicide: Life on the Street”, and in 1998 in “Trinity”.

Love life and wife

Marc is one of the most secretive people in the film industry as he hasn’t mentioned a single detail regarding the girls he might have dated in the past.

Rumor has it that the popular actor might be gay – it began circulating the internet only because of the fact that Marc doesn’t usually talk about girls, and is rarely seen in their company – he hasn’t commented on the rumors and therefore nothing about his sexual orientation can be claimed with certainty.

He is rumored to be currently dating an actress whom he worked with on the set of the “Law and Order: Special Victims Unit” in 2015, however, neither of them have addressed the rumors, and so judging by his social media accounts and his secrecy, Marc is currently single, hasn’t married, and doesn’t have kids.

Interests and hobbies

Marc is mainly focused on his acting career, but there are still things he enjoys doing in his free time.

Marc is very keen on keeping up with the latest fashion trends, and often uploads pictures of his clothes onto his Instagram account – he started his career as a model, and would like to become a popular model one day as well. He is not much of a traveler, but has still been to several US states and is planning on visiting Europe in 2020.

Marc was very sporting in high school, as he played both baseball and football but stopped once he matriculated – today, he only watches sports games on TV, and occasionally live at stadia, and has a couple of training sessions at a local gym. He is a big fan of winter, as he’s an avid skier, while he also knows how to snowboard. Marc likes cars, especially vintage, but nevertheless prefers to use a bicycle to get around the city.

Appearance and net worth

Marc is currently 29 years old. He has short black hair and brown eyes, and is 5ft 3ins (1.6m) tall while his weight is not known. According to authoritative sources, his current net worth has been estimated to be more than $600,000, and is steadily rising thanks to his acting career.

Social media presence

Marc is quite active on several popular social media networks as this is somewhat important for his acting career. He launched his Twitter account in January 2014 and has since gathered over 12,000 followers and tweeted more than 1,000 times. He is a bit more popular on Instagram, on which he has gathered more than 80,000 followers, and uploaded over 600 pictures onto his account – he is running a Facebook page as well, and it currently counts nearly 600 people following him.
