About.com’s Surfing guide, Jay DiMartino, posted an excellent interview with Jason about his role as the surf shop owner in the upcoming film, The Perfect Summer:
Can you tell me a little bit about this character Cody that you play?
Yeah, I fell in love with this character because I relate to him so well. Cody could be Jason. I could be this surf shop owner. What I love most about him is that he is the calming force in between it all. He is the peace maker who genuinely cares about all the kids who come into his surf shop. And like in my current stage of life, I have a daughter now, and I hang out with all the neighborhood kids and take them down to the elementary school to skate, and their parents let me take them skating. I kind of play that same role here at home in Dallas and I just feel really connected to this role.

Thanks for the find, Jasonized!
