Mini Bio (1)

Jason began his career with his memorable portrayal of the dark, but likeable villain, "Peter Blake", on NBC's long-running drama, Days of Our Lives (1965), for which he garnered Soap Opera Digest's coveted Best Villain award.

After leaving "Days" to pursue other projects, Jason continued to work consistently in leading roles in television and film, including Alibi (1997), opposite Tori Spelling for ABC, Three Secrets (1999), with Jaclyn Smith for CBS, and The Darwin Conspiracy (1999) (Pilot/MOW) for UPN. He then landed a recurring role warming up the ice cold "Miss Parker" on ABC's hit drama series, The Pretender (1996), opposite Andrea Parker.

Soon after, Baywatch (1989) producers approached Jason to replace David Hasselhoff in the series' new incarnation, Baywatch (1989) Hawaii, shooting on location in the island paradise. After two seasons, the series wrapped up its syndicated run and Jason returned to Los Angeles, where he became the father to his second son with wife, Corinne Olivo Levin, a literary talent manager. Jason was then cast in numerous indie film roles such as The Rose Technique (2002), with JoBeth Williams, Flying Virus (2001) (aka "Buzzed"), with Gabrielle Anwar and Rutger Hauer, Purgatory Flats (2003) and Submission (2006), opposite Aussie star, Simmone Mackinnon. More recently, he appeared in the films: Star Trek (2009), directed by J.J. Abrams, Burning Palms (2010), Accused at 17 (2009), Christmas Spirit (2011), Home Invasion (2012), and this summer's upcoming Super 8 (2011), again for director J.J. Abrams.

Throughout his career, Jason continued to guest star and repeat on numerous network television hits offering his unique presence in drama, comedy, sci-fi and action. Some of his more notable guest star credits include: Friends (1994) (memorably as Phoebe's hot massage client), Charmed (1998), The Practice (1997), CSI: Miami (2002), NCIS (2003), JAG (1995), The Suite Life of Zack and Cody (2005) (as the dashing "Indiana Jones"-esque "Dakota Smith"), Boston Legal (2004) (as a recurring guest star), CSI: NY (2004), The Closer (2005), Las Vegas (2003), Without a Trace (2002), Castle (2009), Ghost Whisperer (2005), Big Love (2006), CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (2000), Criminal Minds (2005), No Ordinary Family (2010) and Torchwood (2006) (Starz). He is currently recurring on Switched at Birth (2011) for ABC Family.

Some of his other pilot appearances include: Pepper Dennis (2006) (for which he was a recurring guest star), War Stories (2003) (NBC), Day One (2010) (NBC), "Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior (CBS) and the new Madison High (2012) for the Disney Channel.

Jason has also starred in many award-winning theater productions. Some of his favorite leading theater roles were in the productions: "Death of a Salesman (winning the Robby Award for Best Actor), "Myron" (a touching AIDS drama) and the L.A Times' acclaimed "Johnnie on the Spot".

You might also remember him as the ultimate sporty-yet eternally handsome, "Old Spice guy" of 2009, as he slid around the bases into an award-winning ad campaign.

Jason currently lives in Santa Monica with his wife of 24 years and their two sons.
