JASON LEE is solidly establishing himself among critics, directors and peers alike. Lee made a strong impression as Jeff Bebe, the lead singer for the rock band Stillwater in Cameron Crowe's "Almost Famous," and then as Brian Shelby, the best friend to Tom Cruise's character, in Crowe's Golden Globe award-winning "Vanilla Sky."

He next stars as the romantic lead in the comedy "A Guy Thing." He plays a marketing executive who fears he may have committed the ultimate betrayal to his fiancee (Selma Blair), when he wakes up the morning following his bachelor party next to a tiki dancer (Julia Stilles). He also appears in director Lawrence Kasdan's upcoming ensemble thriller "Dreamcatcher."

Born and raised in Huntington Beach, California, Lee turned a childhood pastime of skateboarding into a professional career. After moving to Los Angeles in his early twenties, however, he he developed an interest in acting.

Lee's big break came in 1995 with the lead role in writer-director Kevin Smith's comedy "Mallrats," in which he deftly portrayed the inconsiderate slacker, Brodie. He 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 Ben Affleck's insecure, outspoken roommate, Banky. He next showcased his intuitive timing as the demonic Azrael in smith's supernatural comedy "Dogman," and he reprised his Chasing Amy role in "Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back."

His additional feature credits include: director Barry Sonnenfeld's ensemble comedy "Big Trouble;" the comedy "Heartbreakers' with Sigourney Weaver and Jennifer Love Hewitt; Kasdan's ensemble comedy "Mumford;" the political action-thriller "Enemy of the State;" "Kissing A Fool;" and "American Cuisine."

Lee has most recently established the non-profit Jason Lee Foundation for the Arts, to support artists and artistic projects.
