Kevin Smith’s Mallrats, that became a cult success, would be his first significant film appearance.

Lee was nominated for such an Independent Spirit Award for his performance as Banky Edwards in Chasing Amy.
Lee went on to play prominent parts in films such as Heartbreakers, Stealing Harvard, as well as a Guy Thing.

In Disney Presents Pixar’s The Incredibles in a Magic Kingdom Adventure, he reprised his role as Syndrome’s “robot duplicate.” Lee also voices Underdog inside the movie Underdog and plays Dave Seville within live-action/CGI Alvin as well as the Chipmunks flicks.
Lee was given the leading role in My Name Is Earl in 2005. He passed on the series twice before agreeing to read for the pilot, according to interviews on the first-season DVD. Earl Hickey is his character in the show.
