He has two sisters, Marylin and Stephanie, and a brother, Christian. He attended Taft High School in Woodland Hills, California.

Valderrama got his start performing in numerous plays, including "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and "Rumors." He made his professional debut in a Spanish-language Pacific Bell commercial. At his drama teacher's suggestion, he got an agent and was immediately cast in the CBS miniseries "Four Corners" and in "Omba Makamba" on the Disney Channel. He made his big screen debut starring opposite Freddie Prinze Jr., Brittany Murphy, Matthew Lillard and Jessica Biel in the Warner Brothers film "Summer Catch."

Valderrama played Fez on "That '70s Show" from 1998–2006. He also played DJ Keoki in the 2003 film "Party Monster" alongside Macaulay Culkin, Chloë Sevigny, Wilson Cruz and Seth Green. He produced and hosted the MTV series "Yo Momma" from 2006 to 2007, and appeared (involuntarily) as many as three times on another MTV mainstay, "Punk'd," hosted by fellow "That '70s" alumni Ashton Kutcher.

In April and May 2003, Valderrama appeared in the Los Angeles Times critic's choice play "Blackout," an adaptation of the feature film "Drunks," and on April 4, 2004, starred opposite Anjelica Huston and Ben Kingsley in the Actors' Fund of America one-performance only reading of Sunset Boulevard. He filmed the short film "La Torcedura," in which he played the lead, and appeared in The Darwin Awards, an independent film directed by Finn Taylor, starring Winona Ryder and Joseph Fiennes.

In animation work, Valderrama voiced Rodrigo in "Clifford's Really Big Movie," playing alongside John Ritter, Wayne Brady and Jenna Elfman. He also voices the main character, Manny, in Disney Channel's "Handy Manny" series for preschoolers (He even starred in a minisode featuring his acting counterpart). He had a starring role in "El Muerto," an indie film directed by Brian Cox and based on the successful comic book created by Javier Hernandez. In January 2007, Valderrama launched his own men's fashion label called "Calavena."
