Memphis Beat Star Jason Lee Talks Video Games

Long before he grew out his stache and became a lovable mainstream fixture as Earl Hickey on NBC’s hit sitcom, “My Name Is Earl,” Jason Lee fell in love with skateboarding.

Jason Lee is a fantastic actor. I really hope he stars in some future movies, not just TV shows.

Loved him and Mark Gonzales in 'Video Days' true skateboard geniuses, still got the Transworld Skateboarding Mag where Jason Lee was introduced, these guys were true originals/good guys/talented artists that helped establish skateboarding culture and made it into what it is today.

He was in a lot of Kevin Smith movies. He's great. I liked him in Earl too. Haven't seen memphis though.
