Jason Lee Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Jason Michael Lee, commonly known as Jason Lee, is a famous American actor, film and television producer, comedian, as well as a businessman. To the public, Jason Lee is perhaps best known for his appearance in Greg Garcia’s comedy series called “My Name Is Earl”. The series first aired on television screens in 2005, with Lee, Ethan Suplee, Eddie Steeples and Nadine Velazquez in the main roles. Over the years, the show proved to be a decent success, and even inspired the creation of a comic book based on the series. However, since “My Name Is Earl” was cancelled in 2009 after four seasons, the comic book project was abandoned as well. Aside from the latter series, Jason Lee is known for his appearances in “Alvin and the Chipmunks” film series, where he plays one of the main characters by the name of Dave Seville, as well as his voice work in “The Incredibles”, “Underdog” and “Jack-Jack Attack”. More recently, in 2014 Jason Lee has starred in a comedy film entitled “Behaving Badly” with Nat Wolff and Selena Gomez.

Jason Lee Net Worth $18 Million

A well-known actor and a voice actor, how rich is Jason Lee? According to sources, Jason Lee’s net worth is estimated to be $18 million, most of which he has accumulated due to his appearances on television screens, as well as his many business ventures.

Jason Lee was born in 1970, in California, United States, where he studied at the Ocean View High School. As a teenager, Lee expressed an interest in skate-boarding, as a result of which he became a prominent professional skate-boarder, which earned him a variety of sponsorships, including “Dekline Footwear”, “Stereo”, as well as “Airwalk”, which also sponsors Tony Hawk. In addition to that, he established a company called “Stereo Skateboards” with Chris Pastras.

Lee debuted in the film industry in 1991, when he appeared in a skateboarding video directed and produced by Spike Jonze entitled “Video Days”. Several minor roles followed, until in 1995 he was cast to play the main character in Kevin Smith’s romantic comedy film entitled “Mallrats”. Lee’s friendship with Smith gained him numerous appearances in his films, including “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back” with Jason Mewes and Ben Affleck, “Dogma” and “Chasing Amy”. For his role in the latter film, Jason Lee was rewarded with an Independent Spirit Award. Prior to his success with “My Name Is Earl”, Lee starred in “The Ballad of Jack and Rose”, “Enemy of the State” and “Vanilla Sky” among others. In 2013, Lee guest starred in Breckin Meyer’s comedy series entitled “Men at Work”.

Jason Lee is also notable for his voice acting in such video games as “Disney Infinity”, “Skate 3” and “Tony Hawk Project 8”.

In regards to his personal life, Jason Lee celebrated his marriage to Carmen Llywelyn in 1995, yet the couple split-up in 2001. Afterwards, Lee was involved with Beth Riesgraf, with whom he has a child. Upon their separation in 2007, he started dating Ceren Alkac, whom he married in 2008. Together, they have two children, namely Casper and Sonny Lee.

#Quote
1(2000 quote on his acting success) The day I become the jaded, cynical, asshole actor that takes it all for granted, doing parts just for money, is the day I get the fuck out of acting for good. I'll never let that happen.
2[on acting work before landing Mallrats (1995)] The most I ever did, really, was a small walk-on part in Mi vida loca (1993). I had done a Sonic Youth video that Spike Jonze shot where I was skateboarding. I flew to Malaysia to do skateboarding double work for a British Petroleum commercial. Other than that, I had headshots over the years here and there, and nothing ever came of it.
3[2010, on My Name Is Earl (2005) being canceled and landing Memphis Beat (2010)] I definitely miss "Earl" and working on the show. It was a shame the way they canceled it. We didn't get to finish the series. I was devastated; we were all confused. But I guess life goes on and now here I am working on something entirely different.
4(On My Name Is Earl (2005)) I was apprehensive about doing TV, because I didn't want to be known for a certain character. When I did Kissing a Fool (1998) with David Schwimmer, I realized how trapped he was by his role on Friends (1994). Everywhere we'd go, people would shout out to him, "Ross! Hey, Ross!" It's difficult to get away from the shadow of a TV character. I hope I've done enough movies that I won't be pigeonholed as "Earl" for the rest of my life.
5(On retiring from skateboarding) When I decided to retire, I thought I was getting a little too old to be skating for a living. There was a lot of pressure to be at the top of my game all the time, and my heart just wasn't in it anymore. But I haven't given up skating completely. I still cruise around now and then just for fun. I'm way past my prime, so nobody expects much from me anymore.
6(On getting into acting) I was just curious about it, in much the same way you might be curious about how cars are made or how to get to the moon. It was naiveté. My girlfriend's mother was a talent manager, and when I told her I wanted to do movies, she said, "Okay, let's give it a shot." So many people would have said, "Oh, I don't know. Let's get you into some acting classes first and see how it goes." That would have been a bit deflating, and I think I would've lost interest.
7(On My Name Is Earl (2005) and the perks of doing TV) The best thing about Earl is the steady income. I can do films if and when I want, as opposed to doing a film I don't really believe in because I have to pay the bills. I've never been at a Vince Vaughn or Ben Stiller level, so I don't get offered a lot of starring roles in comedy blockbusters. I've done some independent films that I'm proud of, but it's seven weeks of work for not much money. So then you have to find as many acting jobs as you can, just to keep up financially. "Earl" came along at the right time for me.
8(2006 quote on fame) When you reach a certain status in Hollywood, you have to play a lot of games to stay in the limelight. It becomes more about being famous than being an actor. It's a cult of personality. Who's the It person this week? Who has the hottest girlfriend and the most bling-bling? Who showed up at the MTV Video Music Awards in a Hummer limousine? For me it's always more rewarding when people come up to me and say, "I loved you in Mumford. What's your name again?" That's how I've always wanted it to be.
9(On skateboarding injuries) I have scars on my knees from smashing into the corner of cement benches. I have scars on my pelvis from jumping off my board and sliding like Superman down a hill. One time I snapped my wrist in half and had to get a cast on my arm. Like an idiot, I skated before the cast was taken off, and I fell again and broke my other arm. For the next three months I had to brush my teeth using only my thumb and pinkie.
10On his performance as a rock star in Almost Famous (2000): "I wanted to be very serious about being a musician -- a guy who cares a lot about the music and the band and why we did it in the first place. We wanted to show an actual passion on stage with the intent of turning on the audience."
11On working with Lawrence Kasdan and Cameron Crowe, and Writer-Directors in general: I'd love to establish relationships with other writer-directors, too, but Chasing Amy (1997) is what got things going for me, and I'll always stick by Kevin.
