Though best known for his award-winning, nine-year stint as the now iconic George Costanza of television’s Seinfeld, Jason Alexander has achieved international recognition for a career noted for its extraordinary diversity from lauded performances on stage, screen and television to his extensive works as a writer, composer, director, producer and acting teacher.
Jason began as a teenager doing commercials for television and radio. While still in college, he made his Broadway debut in the original cast of the Hal Prince/Stephen Sondheim musical Merrily We Roll Along. He continued starring on Broadway in the original casts of Kander and Ebb’s The Rink, Neil Simon’s Broadway Bound, Rupert Holmes’ Accomplice and his Tony Award-winning performance in Jerome Robbin’s Broadway. Jason also authored the libretto for that show, which won the Tony Award for Best Musical.
His many films include Pretty Woman, Jacob’s Ladder, Love Valor Compassion, Rocky and Bullwinkle, Dunston Checks In, The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Shallow Hal. Additionally, he directed the feature films For Better or Worse and Just Looking. He also directed television episodes of Seinfeld, Til Death, Everybody Hates Chris, Mike and Molly, Criminal Minds and Franklin & Bash. His direction of Brad Paisley’s “Online” video won him a Country Music Award.
Aside from Seinfeld, Jason has starred and produced the series Bob Patterson, Listen Up and Hit the Road. Other notable roles are in Friends, Two and a Half Men, The New Adventures of Old Christine, Criminal Minds, Monk, Curb Your Enthusiasm and Young Sheldon.
Jason tours the country as a speaker, comedian and symphony artist.
