Jason Vail is an American actor who has garnered many roles in film and television over his twenty years plus career. All due in part to his diverse range of character playing. He has portrayed historical figures such as John Wilkes Booth and has also played a wide range of lead and supporting roles on TV and film such as police detectives, military types, FBI agents, lawyers, an oil CEO, a D.A., bartender, hit man, reporter, doctors, sports agent, hostile redneck, psychotic killers, vampires, flawed everyman types and many more. He is often cast in roles that have a dual personality to them. Example, the good guy that later turns out to be the bad guy or vice versa. Though he admits bad guy roles are truly his favorite characters to play.
Jason's acting career began in the early 1990's and since then he has amassed over 50 films and three dozen television appearances in nearly every genre in film and television. He most recently acted opposite Melissa McCarthy and Susan Sarandon in feature comedy, "Tammy" also opposite Jon Hamm in sports drama, "Million Dollar Arm" and Gabrielle Union on "Being Mary Jane" a new B.E.T. TV series coming soon. Look for them all in theaters and on TV next year, 2014!
