Cheech Marin Bio

Cheech Marin was a celebrity contestant on Season 1, Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off. He is best known as one-half of the hilariously irreverent, satirical, counter-culture, no-holds-barred duo of Cheech and Chong. Together, the duo made eight films. As an actor, Cheech has since appeared in more than 20 films, including Tin Cup, Spy Kids and Once Upon A Time In Mexico. Cheech was seen in the wickedly funny Robert Rodriguez film Machete. He also voiced characters in the animated feature films Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil, Cars 2 and the re-release of The Lion King 3-D.

His television credits include a co-starring role with Don Johnson in the popular CBS drama Nash Bridges, a recurring role on the hit series Lost and a guest appearance on Grey’s Anatomy. Cheech returned to ABC with a recurring role in the Shondra Rhimes-produced series Off the Map. He co-starred next in the CBS sitcom, Rob!, starring Rob Schneider. Cheech is also well known for his noted Chicano art collection and is the author of three children’s books and a publication of comedic essays for adults.
