Jason Lee: Pro-Skater, Actor, Entrepreneur

Trivia for actor Jason Lee, the young-looking actor who made millions laugh for 4 seasons with his role as Earl in the comedy series My Name is Earl- a series about an ex-con who decides to make up for all his bad deeds (in the name of good karma) after winning the lottery.

If you have young kids, there is a chance you saw him as the “adoptive” parent of the three crazy, talking chipmunks in the Alvin and the Chipmunks series. If you like your comedy offbeat and a little unconventional, you might have enjoyed watching the TV series My Name is Earl where Jason Lee played the title character, an ex-con who decides to make up for all his bad deeds (in the name of good karma) after winning the lottery.

But what separates him from the rest of Hollywood is his skating background. Born in California, he quit high school to pursue a career- as a skateboarder. He became one of the most successful and famous skateboarders of his generation, started a skateboarding company which he is still successfully running, got his first acting job after his first acting audition. Oh, and did I mention he has a baby with his wife, a Turkish/Australian model?

So why don’t you take a look at the facts from Lee’s life, which is not exactly your waited-tables-till-acting-paid-the-bills resumes.

1)      He was born in 1970, two years younger than the famous skateboarder Tony Hawk- who is also from California.

2)      He started skate-boarding in his pre-teens.

3)      He stands at 6' 1½" (1.87 m).

4)      Although his movie genres include fantasy, drama, comedy, animation, family, thriller, horror and romance, he most often stars in comedies.

5)      Ceren Alkac, his Turkish/Australian partner, is his second wife. They had a baby in 2008 and got married the same year.

6)      His first marriage was to actress Carmen Llywelyn. They were married for 6 years.

7)      He has another baby, from actress Beth Riesgraf (Parker of Leverage). Their son is called Pilot Inspektor, while Jason’s daughter from Ceren is called Casper. Yes, apparently he likes having fun when naming his children.  

8)      He has been appearing on the screen since the early 90s.

9)      He was nominated for Golden Globe twice, in the years 2006 and 2007 for his performance as Earl in the series My Name is Earl.

10)   He has worked with directors Lawrence Kasdan (Dreamcatcher, Momford) and Cameron Crowe (Almost Famous, Vanilla Sky) twice.

11)   His co-stars include Ben Affleck, Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, Kurt Russell (Vanilla Sky),Timothy Olyphant (Dreamcatcher), Giovanni Ribisi, Amy Smart, Kevin Pollack, Selma Blair, Beau Bridges (Columbus Circle) Kate Hudson, Billy Crudup (Almost Famous), Milli Avital, David Schwimmer (Kissing a Fool), Daniel Day-Lewis (The Ballad of Jack and Rose), Julia Stiles, Selma Blair (A Guy Thing.)
