Profile Bio Text
Jason Michael Lee (born April 25, 1970) is an American actor and professional skateboarder. Lee was born in Orange, California and raised in nearby Huntington Beach. He attended Ocean View High School, though he did not graduate.
Lee was a prominent professional skateboarder in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Notable tricks performed by Lee included: 360 flips, kickflip backside tailslides, and curb cut launched Japan airs. He was co-founder of Stereo Skateboards with Chris Pastras in 1992; the pair revived the company in 2003 after it had been defunct for several years. Chris Pastras` first Stereo Skateboard was famously thrown into a sulfur pit as part of the company`s edgy advertisement campaign.
Lee and Tony Hawk were the first two skateboarders to receive a pro model shoe with Airwalk. He had a part in the 1991 Blind skateboards video Video Days, shot by Spike Jonze. He also lent his voice and likeness to the skateboarding video-game Tony Hawk`s Project 8.
After taking some minor acting roles, including the Jonze-directed Sonic Youth music video for "100%," in 1992 and a small part in Allison Anders` 1993 film Mi Vida Loca, Lee left professional skating for a full-time acting career. His first major movie role was in Kevin Smith`s Mallrats which became a cult hit. He remained a close friend of Smith and has appeared in most of the director`s works, including Chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Jersey Girl and Clerks II. Lee won an Independent Spirit Award for his role in Chasing Amy as a comic book inker.
Lee graduated to leading main roles in Heartbreakers (alongside Jennifer Love Hewitt) and Stealing Harvard (alongside Tom Green) as well as A Guy Thing (alongside Julia Stiles). He has had supporting roles in Vanilla Sky, Almost Famous as an egotistical rock star, Dreamcatcher, Big Trouble, The Ballad of Jack and Rose and Mumford, as well as a minor role in Enemy of the State. Lee also voiced the supervillain Syndrome in the animated movie The Incredibles and its DVD bonus video Jack-Jack Attack. Lee reprised the role as a "robot copy" of Syndrome in the 2006 Disney on Ice play Disney Presents Pixar`s The Incredibles in a Magic Kingdom Adventure. He is also the voice of Underdog in Underdog , and plays David Seville in the upcoming film Alvin and the Chipmunks.
Lee was offered the lead role in the 2005 NBC sitcom, My Name Is Earl. According to interviews on the first season DVD, he passed on the series twice before finally agreeing to read the pilot. In the series, Lee stars as Earl Hickey, a petty thief who finds karma and sets out to put right all his past wrongs. The series received critical acclaim and strong ratings on its debut (September 20, 2005). A hit for NBC, the show was quickly ordered for a full season — the first sitcom of the season to do so. Several months later, it was renewed for a second season. Lee received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series — Musical or Comedy as well as a nomination for the Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Actor in a Comedy Series. My Name is Earl is currently in its third season, once again receiving high ratings from viewers. The third season is also seeing appearances from past cast members as well as celebrities such as comedian Howie Mandel.
Earl`s brother Randy is played by Ethan Suplee, with whom Lee previously appeared in the movies Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma and Clerks II.
He is a fan of the indie rock band Midlake, and his support of the act has led to new levels of success for them. He even produced and directed the music video for their song, "Balloon Maker" .
