Jason Paul London (born November 7, 1972) is an American actor, best known for his role as Randall "Pink" Floyd in director Richard Linklater's film Dazed and Confused.

Personal life[edit]

London was born in San Diego, California, the son of Debbie (née Osborn), a waitress, and Frank London, a sheet metal worker.[1] He was raised in Oklahoma, near Tuttle and DeSoto, Texas. His identical twin, Jeremy London, is also an actor. In 2003, the two acted together in an episode of 7th Heaven titled "Smoking". Jeremy was Jason's stunt double in The Man in the Moon.

On February 18, 1997, London and actress Charlie Spradling married in Las Vegas, Nevada. They divorced in March 2006, and are the parents of a daughter, Cooper, who shares her father's birthday. Jason and Cooper can be seen at the 2009 Hero Awards.[citation needed]

In November 2010, London became engaged to actress Sofia Karstens. They married on July 16, 2011 at the home of his wife's parents, William and Judith Karstens, in North Hero, Vermont.[2]

About January 26, 2013, he was arrested on suspicion of assault and disorderly conduct after an altercation at a Scottsdale bar.[3]

Career[edit]

London has enjoyed moderate success starring mostly as a rebellious, edgy young addict in feature films such as Broken Vessels and $pent. He also starred as Jason in the 2000 NBC miniseries Jason and the Argonauts. He also starred in Poor White Trash playing sleazy ladies' man Brian Ross.

London portrayed Mark, the local newspaper editor, in the 2010 Hallmark Channel television movie, The Wishing Well, which also starred Jordan Ladd and Ernest Borgnine.
