Originally from Fort Walton Beach, Fla., Malambri strived toward anything that dealt with the influence of art. Growing up, he loved break dancing with friends, which kept him busy and out of trouble. After high school, he was pursuing a degree in Computer Animation and Digital Media when he was approached on the street by an agent with Wilhelmina. Malambri moved to New York City in 2003 to pursue a modeling career where he secured work for D&G, Tommy Hilfiger and American Eagle.
Immediately he was walking the runways of Milan, New York and Paris, and doing photo shoots around the world. Malambri has appeared in major campaigns for Abercrombie & Fitch and Ralph Lauren and has worked with some of the most notable photographers in the world.
While on a subway during the summer of 2006, Malambri caught the eyes of a Los Angeles casting director and talent agent. They introduced themselves, and the agent told him he had the It Factor, having movie-star good looks and a warm-hearted personality. Within minutes they suggested that he move to Los Angeles for a career in TV/film.
Malambri made that move, and soon afterwards he landed guest appearances on Criminal Minds, Party Down and the hit CBS series How I Met Your Mother. He was tapped for the futuristic thriller Surrogates, starring Bruce Willis, and is set to play a supporting role in the upcoming feature We Are the Champions.
