Personal Quote:

I don't want to make films that give you the answer. If there is a message to my films - and I hope there isn't - it's to be open-minded. See more »

In the opening-title sequence of Thank You for Smoking (2005), which used the graphic motif of traditional cigarette cartons, Jason's credit is accompanied by the text "Est'd 1977." This is his year of birth. See more »
