Jason Lee, a highly successful entrepreneur turned angel investor, is part of a movement that has its fingers on the pulse of what's going on in global tech. Just this season, the founder and CEO of SmartThings has two investments in Uber, and recently led a group of investors in funding Kargo, which offers a logistics service for international shipping.

Jason

Jason Michael Lee (born April 25, 1970) is an American actor, director, producer, writer, photographer and former professional skateboarder who played Earl Hickey in the television comedy series My Name Is Earl, for which he was nominated for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy TV series in 2005 and 2006 by The Golden Globes, and Dwight Hendricks in Memphis Beat (2010–2011).

Jason Lee knew he was in trouble when he stepped on the set. The year was 1992, Sonic Youth were at their peak and he was starring as a doomed skateboarder in their latest video. As a music obsessed, pro skateboarder with acting aspirations, he felt he had a point to prove. To add more pressure, it was for the song 100% – the band’s classic ode to a murdered Black Flag roadie – and the video was being co-directed by one of his skateboarding friends (some guy called Spike Jonze).

He has had supporting roles in Vanilla Sky, Almost Famous, 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 Syndrome in The Incredibles and Jack-Jack Attack. He reprised the role as a "robot copy" of Syndrome in Disney Presents Pixar's The Incredibles in a Magic Kingdom Adventure.

According to interviews on the first-season DVD, he passed on the series twice before finally agreeing to read for the pilot. In the series, he stars as Earl Hickey. Lee received two Golden Globe nominations for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy in 2006 and 2007, as well as a nomination for the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series in 2006.

Lee knows all about suburbia: he grew up in Orange County. His family lived in a 70s tract home with a skate ramp out front and BMX bikes. He skateboarded to school, went to the liquor store and played video games. “It was just that typical 70s and 80s American suburban upbringing; staying out all night, causing trouble, going to the arcade and getting slices of pizza at the strip mall,” he says.
