Birth Name: Jon Foster
Foster was born Aug. 3, 1984 in Fairfield, IA, into the liberal, Jewish household of Gillian and Stephen Foster, restaurateurs transplanted from Boston, MA. With their father often on the road, Foster developed a close relationship with Ben, four years his senior, and shared his predilections for the arts, with both brothers winning roles in local theatrical productions from an early age. At age 16, Ben sent an audition tape to a Hollywood casting agent, at the urging of whom he dropped out of school to relocate to Los Angeles, quickly making it onto television in the short-lived ABC sitcom "Flash Forward" (1996) and appearing in his first film, the indie "Kounterfeit" in 1997.
