He was "discovered" when his older sister, a former trampoline champion, was searching for an agent after she landed a role in a Pringles commercial.
He acquired wider notice while starring in Fox Family Channel's television series Higher Ground in 2000, portraying a teen who was sexually molested by his stepmother, and then turned to drugs in his despair.
During the meeting, Christensen alleges, he was never informed that a similar program was in development.
Although a federal judge at first dismissed Christensen's lawsuit in 2011, in June 2012 the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals decided to reverse the lower court's decision and remand the case back to the district court for further proceedings, in what was considered a big victory for Christensen.
Lucas agreed, and a suit was engineered to fit Christensen's frame, even including extensions to allow for the actor to attain Vader's 6 ft 6 in (1.98 m) height.
His voice as the "robotic" Vader, however, was dubbed over by James Earl Jones, who first made it famous in the original trilogy.
Christensen's critically acclaimed portrayal of a misunderstood teenager in Life as a House (2001) earned him Golden Globe and SAG Award nominations as well as the National Board of Review's award for Breakthrough Performance of the Year.
The suit alleges that Christensen met with USA to pitch a similar series entitled Housecalls.
Stock footage of Christensen was used in the 2004 DVD-release version of Return of the Jedi, where he was inserted to replace Sebastian Shaw as the ghost of the redeemed Anakin Skywalker. Christensen insisted this was done without his knowledge, an act that was confirmed by Lucasfilm itself in the featurette "Return of the Jedi: What has changed?
" as seen on the official website to commemorate the 2006 DVDs.
His performance in both Episodes II and III received generally negative reviews by critics Christensen next co-starred with Samuel L.
Jackson, Jamie Bell and Rachel Bilson in the film Jumper, the story of a young man who discovers he has the ability to teleport; the film was released on February 14, 2008.
