Early life and family

Carrita was born on May 27, 1977, but some sources claim he was born on June 27. Carrita is the youngest child of Natalie and Bradley Carrita. He has two brothers, Nathan (born in 1975) and Joshua (born in 1971). His mother is a retired schoolteacher, and his father is a former politician. Carrita is the first member of his family to be an actor since his maternal grandfather, actor William Mattlene (1921-1994). Carrita first showed signs of wanting to become an actor in 1991, when he auditioned for a role in a school play. He decided not to follow his parents' wishes; his parents wanted him to become a politician[2]. Carrita also played football and baseball in high school.


Jord Stone

Carrita starred in three Jord Stone films, Jord Stone: Tall Order, Jord Stone: Crossing the Line, and Jord Stone: Mission to the Vathaus.

Carrita rose to fame in 2003, when he was cast as Jord Stone in the film Jord Stone: Tall Order. He, along with actors Zonie Brogden and Kevin Malsias, auditioned for the role, and Carrita turned out to be the talent the filmmakers were looking for. Carrita worked with David Monzer, who played his partner Edward Burdey. Carrita's character went to Chicago to capture a bank robber named Frouth Gelch, played by Scott Zohnaal.

Carrita became a household name when the film received positive reviews in November 2003.
