Jason Biggs is an
American actor who is best known for his role as Jim Levenstein in the American
Pie trio of teen sex comedies.
Biggs began acting
at the age of five. In 1992, he made his television debut in the short lived
Fox network series Drexell's Class. He also made a one-off HBO special, The
Fotis Sevastakis Story, but due to licencing arguments, it was never aired.
That same year, Biggs debuted on Broadway in Conversations with My Father,
which helped pave the way for Biggs to participate in the daytime soap opera,
As the World Turns. He was nominated for the award of Best Younger Actor at the
daytime Emmy awards for his role in that soap.
He went on to make
American Pie, which went on to become an international hit that has spawned two
sequels. After that, Biggs accepted starring roles in movies such as Loser in
2000, and others. In 2004-2005 season Biggs portrayed an Orthodox Jew in Daniel
Goldfarb's comedy, Modern Orthodox, staged at Dodger Stages theater in New York
City. In 2006, Biggs was seen in the MTV reality show Blowin' Up with Jamie
Kennedy and Stu Stone and was for the most part viewed as the antagonist,
creating a beef of sorts with Kennedy and Stone. However, when Kennedy and
Stone had a minor feud, Stone befriended Biggs, leading Stone to record a
hip-hop diss record against Kennedy entitled "Fuck Jamie Kennedy".
The song featured Bay Area rap artist E-40 and Biggs himself. Jason will be
returning to the stage in the fall of 2008 when he stars in Howard Korder's
Boys' Life at Second Stage Theatre in New York City.
Born May 12, 1978,
his primary personality traits are represented by the Chinese Zodiac elemental
animal sign, the Earth Horse. No one would accuse the Horse of being a down to
earth sign. Thus, Earth gives him some needed practicality. He is more plodding
and methodical but also more indecisive than other Horses. His being a less
excitable Horse helps to make for happy relationships.
