Chase grew up on the skirts of NYC, in Leonia, a small town nicknamed "The Athens of New Jersey", whose hometown heroes include the likes of Anthony Bourdain, Alan Alda, Phil Jackson & Enrico Fermi, inventor of the world's first nuclear reactor. Raised by his mother Annette DiMino Levy, a school teacher at Columbus HS (which was named by Mayor Giuliani as the most dangerous high school in NYC), and George Levy, a NYC yellow cab & black car driver, Chase developed his charisma & grit at an early age. His career in front of the camera began at the age of 6, when through happenstance and charm, he actually got himself signed with Ford models. He was soon thereafter bit by the actor's bug and his young career began including acting work commercially & theatrically. He now has 25 years of acting training and experience & has been a member of the Screen Actors Guild since 1996.
Chase plays the guys you love to hate or hate to love, booking work as a hit man with a heart, a con man, a cowboy mobster, a TV star, a creative executive, a corrupt cop, a stoner in a rock band, a Brooklyn ball-buster, a vlogger, an Anonymous hacker, and a deranged circus ringleader.
You can think of him as Kit Harrington with a comedic streak of Bill Hicks, an intense, charismatic, rascal with rugged good looks and an edge. He's got the essence of a bad boy, criminal, outdoorsman who can play an artist, an impresario, a blue collar worker or an explorer. You can also think of him as a modern day John Garfield, a young Vincent D'Onofrio, Liev Shrieber or Anthony Bourdain, or Tahar Rahim.
