Jason Matthew Biggs was born on May 12, 1978, in Pompton Plains, New Jersey, to Angela (Zocco), a nurse, and Gary Biggs, a shipping company manager. Jason has two sisters, Heather, a tax specialist born in 1971, and Chiara born in 1980. He was raised Catholic, and is of English and Italian descent. Jason started acting at age 5, appearing in several national commercials. In 1991, at 13 he won a part on the FOX sitcom Drexell's Class (1991), but the show was canceled after one season. Also during that year, he made his Broadway debut opposite Judd Hirsch in the play, Conversations With My Father. The play helped earn him a spot on As the World Turns (1956), as the rebellious Pete Wendall. The role earned him a nomination for Best Younger Actor in a Drama Series at the Daytime Emmy's. After graduating high school in 1996, he studied briefly at New York University and Montclair State University in New Jersey but dropped out to pursue acting again. In 1997, he costarred in the short lived television series Camp Stories (1997). In 1999 came his breakthrough role in the teen sex comedy American Pie (1999). His performance shocked yet wooed audiences, critics, and casting agents to bring him for the first time the chance to choose new roles and scripts. He chose such roles in Loser (2000) and Boys and Girls (2000).

Personal Quotes (5)

Everywhere you turn, you see me in a movie, and I'm sorry. At this point, people must be saying, 'God, Biggs again? Can't we get away from this guy?'
In high school, I got picked on. It's funny that I got tormented for what I'm doing now - the acting thing. People would see me in a Nickelodeon commercial, and I would hear about it the next day at school. Kids would say, 'Hi, TV Boy.' They heckled. I never got beat up.
[on the American Pie sequel] "It might be fun to make it with a lemon merigue."
"I'm still never able to order pie without the server giving me a little smirk or going back to the kitchen and saying 'Oh my God, the pie guy just ordered a piece of apple pie!'" - on the effects of his role in American Pie.
[on American Reunion (2012)] A lot of us had nervous butterflies because it had been a long time since we had seen each other. It took all of ten minutes before we were back to our old ways. We have a shorthand and a comfort level with each other that we can go that long without seeing each other and it doesn't matter.
