  • While attending New Mexico State University on a football scholarship, Chisum broke the record for the most sacks of a quarterback in Division I.
  • Has broken his nose six times on the basketball court.
  • Long before Chisum and Melissa Archer (Natalie) became co-stars, his wife, Aishah, worked with Archer at a M.A.C counter in the Glendale Galleria in California.
  • The actor's father and sister both have retinitis pigmentosa, a degeneration of the rods and cones in the retina. The disease has no cure, but Chisum hopes to raise money for research of it.
