karma, he sets out to right all the wrongs he's inflicted on people.

In addition to Jason Lee's recent award nominations he has received an Independent Spirit Award for his performance in writer-director Kevin Smith's film "Chasing Amy" and appeared in memorable roles in multiple features for such directors as Smith, Cameron Crowe and Lawrence Kasdan – and now he is solidly establishing himself among critics, directors and peers.

Jason Lee wrapped production on Sony's "motion-capture" feature "Monster House," about three teenagers who discover their neighbor's house is a monster. The film also stars Steve Buscemi and Maggie Gyllenhaal and is scheduled for release July 21, 2006.

In addition, Jason Lee co-starred as the voice of Syndrome in Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar's Academy Award-winning animated feature "The Incredibles."

Born and raised in Huntington Beach, California, Jason Lee turned a childhood pastime of skateboarding into a professional career. However, once moving to Los Angeles during his early 20s, Jason Lee began developing an interest in acting. "After watching Steve Buscemi as the bellboy in 'Barton Fink,' I knew I wanted to be in movies," said Lee.

Jason Lee's big break came in 1995 with the lead role in writer-director Smith's comedy "Mallrats," in which he deftly portrayed the inconsiderate slacker Brodie. Jason Lee then went on to star in Smith's "Chasing Amy" (for which he won an Independent Spirit Award for Best Supporting Male for his role as Banky) and as the demonic Azrael in Smith's supernatural comedy "Dogma." He reunited with Smith in the Dimension Films comedy, "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back." Jason Lee recently filmed a cameo role in Smith's upcoming "The Passion of the Clerks."



Jason Lee also co-starred in Cameron Crowe's Golden Globe-winning ensemble feature, "Almost Famous," in the role of Jeff Bebe, the lead singer of a 1970s rock band called Stillwater. He then re-teamed with Crowe on the writer-director's film "Vanilla Sky."

After working with director Lawrence Kasdan's ensemble comedy "Mumford," Jason Lee reunited with Kasdan for the director's suspense thriller, "Dreamcatcher."

Among Jason Lee's film credits are writer-director Rebecca Miller's feature, "The Ballad of Jack and Rose" (with Daniel Day-Lewis and Catherine Keener), director Barry Sonnenfeld's ensemble comedy "Big Trouble," "Enemy of the State" and "Kissing a Fool."

Jason Lee also has several projects in the works with his production company, Niva films, which he launched in 2003 with partners Beth Riesgraf, Scott Martin and Chris Pastras.

Jason Lee is a photographer as well as an avid supporter and collector of the arts. He is also actively involved with his skateboard company, Stereo Skateboards. In his leisure, Jason Lee enjoys spending time playing guitar, writing and recording music, and listening to his classical and jazz favorites.
