Information:

Spike Jonze

Does he look familiar to you? He should. In the late 1990s, Spike was ubiquitous. He was everywhere at once. You could turn on MTV and there he'd be dancing in the video for Fatboy Slim's "Praise You" or... if you went to the movie theatre you would see him along side of George Clooney and Ice Cube in "Three Kings".

Spike is far more than just an actor though, he is also a photographer and director. You can see some of his photographs of the Beastie Boys on the Beastie Boys Video Anthology DVD. Also on the DVD are the music videos he directed for the band. Sure Shot, Ricky's Theme, and of course Sabotage were all products of Spike's genius.

In addition to his commentary on the Beastie Boys Video Anthology DVD, Spike can also be heard on the Free Tibet Feature Film DVD. The commentary that organizer Adam Yauch and director Spike Jonze lend to the DVD is worth the money in and of itself.

When not working with the Beastie Boys, Spike keeps himself occupied with working on music videos for other bands as well as directing other movies such as the critically acclaimed "Being John Malkovich." Spike was married to Sofia Coppola but has since divorced.
