Stocky young player of TV and film who first made an impression in "Dazed and Confused" (1993), Richard Linklater's knowing chronicle of mid-1970s teen life, after some Hollywood stunt work and several small roles in exploitation films. As "Dazed"'s Don, Jenson was an incoming high school senior more concerned with girls, pot, and football than planning for the life ahead of him. His previous film credits included "Ghoulies II," "Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers" (both 1988) and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (1992). Jenson's TV appearances, meanwhile, have included small parts in the TV-movie "Moving Target" (NBC, 1988) and an "ABC Afterschool Special" installment entitled "Just Tipsy, Honey" (ABC, 1989).
