JASON ALEXANDER (Boris Badenov) starred in 180 episodes (over nine seasons) of the wildly popular sitcom, Seinfeld, portraying the hapless schlep, George Costanza, making this neurotic, devious, unscrupulous character one of the most memorable in television series history. The crowning glory of a 20-year acting career, the role earned Alexander six Emmy and four Golden Globe nominations, an American Television and two American Comedy Awards as Best Supporting Actor, and a Best Actor honor (despite the supporting role status) from the Screen Actors Guild. He also directed several segments, collecting a D.G.A. nomination in 1993.

Born-and-raised in New Jersey, Alexander first found an audience among his school classmates. At sixteen, he earned his first professional job -- performing on a local New York children's program after being spotted in a children's theatre group. Winning a scholarship to Boston University's drama program, Alexander left his studies to pursue his craft. He won a small role in the horror yarn The Burning (produced by Harvey Weinstein), then landed a supporting role in the Stephen Sondheim musical, Merrily We Roll Along, his Broadway debut.

In 1984, Alexander played four roles in the Broadway musical The Rink, then created the role of Stanley Jerome in Neil Simon's semi-autobiographical play, Broadway Bound. From that triumph, he moved back into musicals, and Jerome Robbins' Broadway, his theatrical capstone. For his starring role as the show's Emcee (he also authored the book's narration), Alexander danced off with the Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Circle Critics Awards as Best Actor in a Musical. Other stage credits include Rupert Holmes' Accomplice, Promises, Promises for the Reprise! Broadway's Best in Concert series, and the one-man show, Give ‘Em Hell, Harry, for which he received the Dramalogue Award for his portrayal of Harry Truman.

In addition to Seinfeld, Alexander's television work also encompasses the CBS series Everything's Relative, the Elliott Gould comedy series, E.R., the miniseries Favorite Son, two ABC musicals, Bye, Bye Birdie (playing the rock star's manager), and Cinderella (as the prince's valet) and HBO's comedy, Dream On, for which he won another Emmy nomination for his guest-starring role. Alexander was nominated for an American Comedy honor for hosting duties on the 1994 Emmy Awards and most recently performed with the Boston Pops on PBS. He returned to the director's chair for an episode of the AMC comedy series, Remember WENN in 1997.

A triple-threat performer, Alexander's extensive movie work includes roles in Brighton Beach Memoirs, Mosquito Coast, Jacob's Ladder, White Palace, Coneheads, Blankman, The Last Supper, Rob Reiner's North, Ron Howard's The Paper, Gary Marshall's Pretty Woman, I Don't Buy Kisses Anymore, Dunston Checks In, Denial, the big-screen version of Terence McNally's Tony-winning play, Love! Valour! Compassion! and the OscarÒ -nominated live-action short Down on the Waterfront. He made his motion picture directorial debut on For Better or Worse and recently helmed his second feature, Just Looking, with Patti LuPone and Gretchen Mol.

Alexander's voice has become equally as famous in animated features and television series. He starred in USA Network's critically-acclaimed adult animated series Duckman for four seasons and lent his vocal talents to the Disney features Aladdin, The Return to Jafar and Hercules as well as Hugo the gargoyle in The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
