The two have only acted alongside each other once - in the February 3, 2003 episode of the WB's 7th Heaven, entitled "Smoking". They have also competed for the same role - Jeremy's first audition was for a part in the 1991 film The Man in the Moon, which Jason got, leaving Jeremy the part of his brother's stunt double.

Following the loss of family members to cancer of the lungs, he directed a documentary about the hazards of smoking. He was arrested in the spring of 2004 for allegedly driving with a suspended license and for carrying controlled substances.
