Grand Prize Winner - 2014 Hollywood Book Festival. Every year, thousands of people from all over the world move to Hollywood, with thing more than their hopes and an irrational sense of romanticism and fairness, to pursue their dreams of fame and fortune. Rather than wait tables, struggling actor Jason Lassen opted to perform at children's birthday parties and quickly found out how competitive and political they are. One moment finding himself at Steven Spielberg's house, hoping against hope to be discovered while sweating through a Teletubbies costume, and the next dressed as a faux-Honey Bear with a gun to his head in Compton. During his wildly event-filled journey, he discovers it doesn't matter how much money or fame you have, true happiness comes from within.
An actor with over 40 commercials to his credit, an accomplished musician and now an author, Jason Lassen resides in Los Angeles with his wife, two kids and and two dogs. Through he'll always be a New Hampshire farm boy at heart, Jason's other passions besides his family and his work are playing guitar, photography, video editing and painting. He's still waiting for his big break.
