With the start of the ‘90s, his career started improving, and in 1992 he had his first starring role, as Avik in the romantic drama film “Map of the Human Heart”, with Anne Parillaud, and Patrick Bergin.
Rise to Prominence
Jason was on the rise now, and in 1993 he was cast in his career role, as Bruce Lee in the biopic film “Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story”, for which he received good reviews and also earned a couple of award nominations. The following year, Jason had another tremendous accomplishment as an actor, when he was selected for the role of Mowgli in the film “The Jungle Book”.
Before the ‘90s ended, Jason featured in a couple more popular films, such as the thriller drama film “Murder in Mind” (1997), then the fantasy horror “Tale of the Mummy” (1998), and also co-starring with Kurt Russell and Jason Isaacs in the Paul W.S Andersen sci-fi drama film “Soldier” (1998).
With the start of the 2000s, Jason’s career started declining, although he kept pushing until the middle of the decade. His most memorable role in this period was as Father Uffizi in the horror film “Dracula II: Ascension”, which he reprised two years later in another sequel “Dracula III: Legacy” (2005).
Also, in 2003 he starred in the sci-fi action film “Timecop: The Berlin Decision”. Through to 2010, Jason also appeared in the films “Balls of Fury” (2007) and “Dance of the Dragon” (2008), but then failed to secure any noteworthy role until the mid- 2010s, as he returned to the big screen with a role in the action-adventure film “Seventh Son”, starring Ben Barnes, Julianne Moore and Jeff Bridges. In recent years, Jason has featured in several films, including the action-adventure “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny” (2016), then in the comedy-drama “Burn Your Maps” (2016), and co-starred in the action-drama “Mulan”, with Yifei Liu, Donnie Yen and Jet Li among other stars.
