Chris also guest-starred on a memorable 2002 episode of Trading Spaces and in 2007 was voted their Funniest Home Owner. In 2005 Chris pranked American Idol, posing as a rapping nanny.

While in D.C., Chris starred as Woof in Hair, alongside Tracie Thoms.

In 2009 Chris Wylde was named Best Actor at the New York City Horror Film Festival for his work in "The Revenant". He shared this award with co-star and B.F.F. David Anders.

When Chris joined the Screen Actors' Guild, there already was a Chris Noll on the memberhip rolls, so he became Chris Wylde. He asked his brother, Dave Noll, for advice on what to call himself and Dave was sitting under a movie poster for the film Wild Things at his VH1 office.

I had to think of a new name right on the spot. So I went through a whole list of names, like family names. My middle name is Scott. Scott Noll, didn't like it. Chris Scott—Nee. If I wanted to keep my real name, I would have had to be C. S. Noll or Christopher Scott Noll which just sucks. For a comic to have a name that's so long is just ridiculous, you know? So I went through this whole family list and I finally found a name I like, which was my grandfather's middle name, which was his mother's maiden name, and it was Sands. I was like "Chris Sands, cool; I sound like a Vegas lounge singer guy." That was taken too. I was like Jesus Christ! I'm on the phone with my brother trying to decide my future name and he's got this big movie poster for Wild Things, cause he's a known-pedophile. So he was like, how about Chris Wild? Chris Wild, I thought it was kinda corny. So I was saying Chris Wild and the woman was like, "OK, how do you want to spell that?" I was just like I don't want to do it Wild, so I'll do it Wyld, and that I realized that is Chris Wyld (Rhymes with guild), so I said throw an "e" on it and that's the story of the Hollywood phony you see before you today, Chris Wylde. It was definitely weird. It totally took a while to get used to.

Chris was married on October 10, 2009 in Greenville, South Carolina. The ceremony was both United Methodist and Hindu.

Chris' wife gave birth to their son Kiran on October 17, 2010. Kiran means "beam of light" or "sun rays" in Sanskrit.
