JASON BIGGS quickly became one of Hollywood's most talkedabout young actors after his breakthrough role in the "American Pie” trilogy. The three films combined to make over $350 million in the United States alone and helped cement Biggs as a household face in the industry.

Biggs recently completed production in New York on "The Pleasure of Your Company” opposite Isla Fisher ("Wedding Crashers”). The film centers around a man (Biggs) who, after losing the woman of his dreams, is convinced he'll never fall in love again. At the urging of his best friend, he spontaneously proposes to a dissatisfied waitress (Fisher), and an innocent dare evolves into the kind of love that both have been looking for all along. In 2005, Biggs appeared in "Guy X” for director Saul Metztein. A black comedy set in 1979, as Ronald Reagan is gearing up his presidential campaign and the Cold War is entering its endgame, this is the story of an American soldier transferred by clerical error to the Arctic and unable to escape because he no longer officially exists. Biggs stars alongside Natasha McElhone, Jeremy Northam and Michael Ironside.

The Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey, native started acting at the age of five, with national commercials and modeling. At age thirteen, he made his Broadway debut opposite Judd Hirsch in the critically acclaimed Broadway play "Conversations With My Father.” Other Broadway credits include the U.S. production of "The Graduate,” opposite Kathleen Turner in 2002, and, most recently, Daniel Goldfarb's play "Modern Orthodox,” opposite Craig Bierko and Molly Ringwald.

In 2004, Biggs co-starred in "Jersey Girl,” written and directed by Kevin Smith, alongside Ben Affleck and Liv Tyler for Miramax Films. The fall of 2003 marked the release of the last in the trilogy of the "American Pie” series, "American Wedding.” His film credits also include the Woody Allen project "Anything Else”; the film adaptation of Elizabeth Wurtzel's bestselling biography, "Prozac Nation,” opposite Christina Ricci; the romantic comedy "Saving Silverman,” with Jack Black, Steve Zahn and Amanda Peet; the Amy Heckerling film "Loser”; and the romantic comedy "Boys and Girls,” opposite Freddie Prinze, Jr., and Claire Forlani. Biggs began his career in television on the soap opera "As the World Turns,” for which he won a Daytime Emmy® for Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series. He also appeared on the shows "Drexel's Class” and "Total Security.”
