Biography

With a career spanning more than 25 years, Jason Marsden has been affectionately referred to as that guy from that show. The seasoned actor has worked in film and television with the best and the brightest, including Ridley Scott (White Squall (1996)), Robert Downey Jr. (Ally McBeal (1997)), James Woods (Shark (2006)), Billy Crystal (Mr. Saturday Night (1992)), Jim Carrey (Fun with Dick and Jane (2005)), and countless others. With more than 150 credits to his name, Jason Marsden has definitely made a dent in the entertainment industry. Originally from Warwick, Rhode Island, Jason and his parents relocated to California when he was 11 years old. After just a few weeks of his new after-school activity--scene study and commercial training--the charismatic Jason was instantly signed by an agency and saturated with auditions for film, television, voice-over, commercials, and more. After turns on General Hospital (1963), Webster (1983), and Murphy Brown (1988), Jason was cast as Eddie Munster in the revamped The Munsters Today (1987), which ran for three seasons in syndication. From there, he appeared on Tales from the Crypt (1989), Anything But Love (1989), and Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987) before landing his second series regular role as Dash X on the series Eerie, Indiana (1991). His character actor appeal soon caught the attention of Billy Crystal, who cast him as a younger version of himself in the film Mr. Saturday Night (1992). For the next few years, Jason co-starred in numerous television shows, including Baywatch (1989), Blossom (1990), Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993).
