Jason Behr Biography (492 words)
Brown-haired, with a mixture of traditional All-American good looks and a brooding punk appeal, Jason Behr made his starring debut with a regular role as one of three aliens masquerading as high school students in the science fiction drama series "Roswell" (The WB, 1999-2001; UPN, 2001-2002).
No newcomer to The WB, Behr previously guest starred on the network's popular "Buffy, the Vampire Slayer" in 1997, and had a recurring role during the 1998-99 season as the overconfident but somewhat goofy school stud Chris, pal of the ultra-obnoxious Abby, on "Dawson's Creek".
Behr made his film debut with a small part in "Pleasantville" (1998) before taking on a challenging starring role as a young gay man unexpectedly reunited with his estranged brothers and father under tense and potentially dangerous circumstances in Victor Salva's small-scale independent "Rites of Passage" (1999).
