Trivia

Jason Lee's favorite actor is Burt Reynolds.

Lee played the role Paul Morse in A Guy Thing (2003).

For Kevis Smith's 2001 movie Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Lee reprised his role as Brodie.

Jason Lee (on My Name Is Earl): I can be out on location, it feels just like being on a film set. So it definitely took a lot for me to decide, but I’m glad I decided to do it.

Lee quoted about his role in Almost Famous: "I know how to play guitar, and I watched a lot of documentaries. Plus I got insight from Peter Frampton, one of our consultants."

In 2001 Lee co-starred with Tom Cruise in Vanilla Sky.

Lee's decision to leave professional skating for mainstream acting took the skateboarding world by surprise.

Lee's part in the 1991 Blind skateboards promotional video Video Days remains very influential to this day.

Lee was one of the first skateboarders to receive a pro model shoe.

Jason is a follower of Scientology.
