Jason Lee Professional Skateboarder, Jason Michael Lee (born April 25, 1970) is an American actor and skateboarder known for his role as the title character on the NBC television series My Name is Earl, his portrayal of Syndrome in the film The Incredibles, his role as Dave Seville in the Alvin and the Chipmunks films, and his work with director Kevin Smith.
Lee was born in Orange County, California, the son of Carol and Greg Lee. He was raised in Huntington Beach, and attended Ocean View High School.
Lee was a prominent professional skateboarder in the late 1980s and early 1990s. He co-founded Stereo Skateboards with Chris Pastras in 1992, and the pair revived the company in 2003 after it had been defunct for several years. Lee and Tony Hawk were the first two skateboarders to receive a signature shoe with Airwalk. Lee later worked with Hawk when he lent his voice and likeness to the skateboarding video-game Tony Hawk’s Project 8. Lee later appeared in another skateboarding video game in 2010 with Skate 3 as ‘Coach Frank’, a character created during development for Stereo.
He had a part in the 1991 Blind Skateboards video Video Days, shot by director Spike Jonze. In 2004, Lee’s skateboarding was featured in the film Way Out East!, a film produced by Stereo Skateboards that he co-wrote and directed.
After taking some minor acting roles in 1992, including the Jonze-directed Sonic Youth music video for “100%,” and a small part in Allison Anders’ 1993 film Mi Vida Loca, Lee left professional skating for a full-time acting career. His first major movie role was in Kevin Smith’s Mallrats, which became a cult hit. This started a friendship that subsequently led to appearances in many of Smith’s films, including Chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Clerks 2, and Cop Out. Lee won an Independent Spirit Award for his role in Chasing Amy as Banky Edwards, a comic book inker.
Lee graduated to leading man roles in Heartbreakers (with Jennifer Love Hewitt) and Stealing Harvard (with Tom Green), as well as A Guy Thing (with Julia Stiles). He has had supporting roles in Vanilla Sky, Almost Famous as a rock star, Dreamcatcher, Big Trouble, The Ballad of Jack and Rose, and Mumford, as well as a minor role in Enemy of the State. Lee also voiced the supervillain Syndrome in the animated movie The Incredibles and its DVD bonus video Jack-Jack Attack. Lee reprised the role as a “robot copy” of Syndrome in the 2006 Disney on Ice play Disney Presents Pixar’s The Incredibles in a Magic Kingdom Adventure. He is also the voice of Underdog in Underdog and plays David “Dave” Seville in the films Alvin and the Chipmunks and Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel.
