Jon Foster (born August 3, 1984) is an American actor and music producer for the band "badbad". He is perhaps best 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.
The music project, badbad, is an electronic soul duo, lead by vocalist Chelsea Tyler.
Foster was born in Boston, Massachusetts, the son of 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 emigrated from Russia.
His family relocated to Fairfield, Iowa after their Boston home was burgled while they were present. He is currently in a relationship with Chelsea Tyler, daughter of Steven Tyler. Together they formed an electronic soul band called badbad.
