Christopher Kennedy Masterson (born January 22, 1980) is an American actor known best for his role as Francis on Malcolm in the Middle. He is the younger brother of That '70s Show cast member Danny Masterson. Coincidentally, both shows were initially broadcast on the FOX Network.


Masterson played Geoff in the direct-to-video movie Dragonheart: A New Beginning in 2000. The movie is a sequel to the award-winning movie Dragonheart starring Dennis Quaid and Sean Connery. Masterson is best known for playing the character of trouble-making Francis in the award-winning sitcom Malcolm in the Middle. He took on the role for six years, from 2000–2006. In 2003 he played Edward Linton in MTV's Wuthering Heights. Masterson was also a lead character in the films Scary Movie 2, Waterborne, Made for Each Other and Intellectual Property.[1] He guest starred in several episodes of That '70s Show, alongside his brother, Danny. In the USA Network television series White Collar, he played Josh Roland in the episode "Where There's a Will". He also played Scotty O'Neal in the movie My Best Friend's Wedding. In 2012, Masterson had a guest role on the TBS series Men at Work as a concierge named Archie. His brother, Danny Masterson, plays Milo, on the show, although the two did not share any scenes together. It has also been announced he will guest star in Elementary.[citation needed]
