Jason Liles was born in Memphis, TN on July 4th, 1987. Although he and his older brother, Jordan, made short films regularly as kids with a handy cam, it wasn’t until 2008 that he began studying theatre in college. He moved to New York in 2009 to pursue a career in the arts. The first gig that Jason booked was with 7-time Oscar-winning makeup artist Rick Baker on Men In Black III playing several aliens throughout the production. Jason joined the union shortly after when he was cast in a national Allstate commercial just before the SAG-AFTRA merger in 2012. This also landed him his first representation, both theatrical and commercial. Jason’s roles in MIB III and height of 6’9″ helped him realize his niche as an actor specializing in roles in SFX makeup, creature suits, and performance capture. This helped him booked several “creature” roles the following year including getting to work side by side with his hero, Doug Jones (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy, Falling Skies, Hocus Pocus). Jason now lives in Hollywood, CA often performing in roles too tall to be human.
