Since 1999, he has had roles in more than a dozen movies and has made a number of appearances on German TV series, such as The Old Fox and Polizeiruf 110. His popularity increased when the 2004 movie Summer Storm came to the cinemas. Marlon played a gay character named Leo. It was the second time he had appeared in a movie with Robert Stadlober (after Verschwende Deine Jugend, 2003). It was also the second time playing a gay character. His first appearance in such a role was in the short movie Freunde (The Whiz Kids, 2000). Kittel has also had roles in over 20 German television movies and shows between 2006–2013, and has been a voice actor in several audio dramas.[1]
