Jon Foster (born August 3, 1984) is an American actor and musician. He is known for his roles in the 2004 film The Door in the Floor, the 2006 horror film Stay Alive, and co-starring opposite Jenna Elfman in the CBS comedy Accidentally on Purpose. Foster also formed the electronic soul duo badbad with his fiancee, Chelsea Tyler, the daughter of Steven Tyler.
Foster was born in Boston, Massachusetts, the second of two boys for restaurant owners Gillian and Steven Foster. He has an older brother, Ben, who is also an actor, and who has described their parents as "free-spirited, Vietnam-protesting hippies". His paternal grandparents were Celia (Segal) and A. (Abraham) Frank Foster, a prominent judge and politician in Boston; their families were Jewish immigrants from Russia.
His family relocated to Fairfield, Iowa after their Boston home was burgled while they were present. He is engaged to Chelsea Tyler, daughter of musician Steven Tyler. Together they formed an electronic soul band called BadBad.
