Scroll down for movie list.

His father is a 30-year veteran of the LAPD.

Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

Once-popular comedy team, a casualty of the "just say no" era, who dabbled in films, almost always playing perpetually stoned hippies. The two first teamed in Vancouver, where they honed their comedic personas in improvisational theater. In the early 1970s, they released a series of comedy albums that found much favor with surreptitious members of the drug counterculture. Up in Smoke (1978), which brought them to the silver screen, became one of the highest (sic) grossing films of that year. Several quasi-sequels followed: Cheech & Chong's Next Movie (1980), Cheech & Chong's Nice Dreams (1981), Cheech & Chong's Still Smokin' (1983), Cheech & Chong's The Corsican Brothers (1984). They also appeared in It Came From Hollywood (1982), Yellowbeard (1983), and After Hours (1985). The two broke up the act in 1985, with Chong keeping a low profile, starring in and directing Far Out Man (1990) and Marin moving on to write and direct Born in East L.A (1987), in which he starred as well. He has also appeared in Ghostbusters II, Rude Awakening (a C&C-type throwback), Troop Beverly Hills (all 1989), and The Shrimp on the Barbie (1990). Marin has also appeared on the TV series "Golden Palace" (1992-93). Chong is the father of actress Rae Dawn Chong.
