JASON LEE (Dave Seville) has a flourishing career that includes an Independent Spirit Award for his performance in writer-director Kevin Smith's "Chasing Amy" and memorable roles in features for noted directors like Smith, Cameron Crowe and Lawrence Kasdan.

Lee starred in and produced the half-hour NBC comedy series, "My Name is Earl," about a hapless crook who has an epiphany after winning a small fortune in the lottery. Lee received two Golden Globe® and SAG Award™ nominations for his role of Earl Hickey. In 2007, Lee starred in the blockbuster comedy "Alvin and The Chipmunks," for Twentieth Century Fox.

Previously, he co-starred as the voice of Syndrome in Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar's Award-winning animated feature "The Incredibles." Lee also voiced a character in Sony's animated feature "Monster House" about three teenagers who discover their neighbor's house is a monster. He also voiced the title character in "Underdog," Spyglass Entertainment and Walt Disney Pictures' live-action adaptation of the classic 1960s cartoon.

Born and raised in Huntington Beach, California, Lee turned a childhood pastime of skateboarding into a professional career. After moving to Los Angeles, he developed an interest in acting. Lee appeared in commercials and music videos, before his 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. Lee 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. Lee then showcased his intuitive timing as the demonic Azrael in Smith's supernatural comedy "Dogma." He reunited with Smith in the comedies "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" and "Clerks II."

Lee starred in writer-director Cameron Crowe's ensemble feature "Almost Famous," in the role of Jeff Bebe, the lead singer of a 1970s rock band called Stillwater. The film won the Golden Globe award for Best Film. He then re-teamed with Crowe on the writer-director's "Vanilla Sky.”

After working with director Lawrence Kasdan in the ensemble comedy "Mumford," Lee reunited with Kasdan on the suspense thriller "Dreamcatcher." Other film credits include writer-director Rebecca Miller's "The Ballad of Jack and Rose" with Daniel Day-Lewis and Catherine Keener, director Barry Sonnenfeld's ensemble comedy "Big Trouble," plus "Enemy of the State" and "Kissing a Fool." In summer 2006, Lee wrote and directed the short film "The White Door," starring Giovanni Ribisi and Beth Riesgraf.

Lee is a professional photographer, as well as an avid supporter and collector of the arts. He is actively involved with his skateboard company Stereo Sound Agency, which recently celebrated its 15-year anniversary.
