German Jewish
ancestry,[3] and is the great-great-grandson of Joseph Spiegel, founder of the Spiegel catalog and grandson of Arthur Spiegel.[2] Arthur H. Spiegel III was the founder of a healthcare consulting firm.[2][4] Jonze's parents divorced when he was a young child and his father remarried.[2][5] Jonze was raised by his mother in Bethesda, Maryland,[6] where she worked in public relations,[2] along with his brother Sam "Squeak E. Clean" Spiegel, who is now a producer and DJ,[7] and his sister Julia.[5] While studying at Walt Whitman High School, Jonze spent much of his time at a Bethesda community store, where owner Mike Henderson gave him the nickname "Spike Jonze" in reference to Spike Jones.[2] A keen BMX

rider, Jonze began working at the Rockville BMX
BMX
store in Rockville, Maryland, at the age of 16. A common destination for touring professional BMX
BMX
teams, Jonze began photographing BMX
BMX
demos at Rockville and formed a friendship with Freestylin' Magazine editors Mark Lewman and Andy Jenkins.[8] Impressed with Jonze's photography work, the pair offered him a job as a photographer for the magazine, and he subsequently moved to California to pursue career opportunities in photography.[8] Jonze fronted Club Homeboy, an international BMX club, alongside Lewman and Jenkins.[9] The three also created the youth culture magazines Homeboy and Dirt,[10] the latter of which was spun off from the female-centered Sassy and was aimed towards young boys.[11] 1985–1993: Photography, magazines, and early video work[edit] While shooting for various BMX
BMX
publications in California, Jonze was introduced to a number of professional skateboarders who would often share ramps with BMX
BMX
pros.[8] Jonze formed a close friendship with Mark Gonzales, co-owner of the newly formed Blind Skateboards at the time, and began shooting photos with the young Blind team including Jason Lee, Guy Mariano and Rudy Johnson in the late 1980s.[8] Jonze became a regular contributor to Transworld Skateboarding, and was subsequently given a job at World Industries
World Industries
by Steve Rocco, who enlisted him to photograph advertisements and shoot promotional videos for his brands under the World Industries
World Industries
umbrella.[12] Jonze filmed, edited and produced his first skateboarding video, Rubbish Heap, for World Industries
World Industries
in 1989.[13] His following video project was Video Days, a promotional video for Blind Skateboards, which was released in 1991 and is considered to be highly influential in the community.[14] The video's subject, skateboarder Mark Gonzales, presented a copy of Video Days
Video Days
to Kim Gordon
Kim Gordon
during a chance encounter following a Sonic Youth show in early 1992.[15] Impressed with Jonze's videography skills, Gordon tracked down the young filmmaker and approached him to direct a music video featuring skateboarders. The video, co-directed by Jonze and Tamra Davis, was for their 1992 single "100%", which featured skateboarding footage of Blind Skateboards rider Jason Lee, who would later become a successful actor.[15] In 1993, Jonze co-directed the "trippy" music video for The Breeders
The Breeders
song "Cannonball" with Gordon.[16] Along with Rick Howard and Mike Carroll, Jonze co-founded the skateboard company Girl Skateboards
Girl Skateboards
in 1993.[17] The following year, he directed the video for the Weezer
Weezer
song "Buddy Holly", which featured the band performing the song interspersed with clips from the sitcom Happy Days.[18] The video became immensely popular and was given heavy rotation on MTV.[19] A 2013 Rolling Stone
Rolling Stone
readers' poll ranked it as the tenth best music video of the 1990s.[20] Also in 1994, Jonze directed the videos for the Beastie Boy's songs "Sure Shot" and, more famously, "Sabotage".[21] The latter parodies 1970s cop shows and is presented as the opening credits for a fictional show called Sabotage, featuring the band members appearing as its protagonists.[20] As with "Buddy Holly", the video attracted great popularity and was in "near-constant rotation on MTV."[22] In the same year, Jonze also directed videos for the hip hop group Marxman, The Breeders, Dinosaur Jr., and another Weezer
Weezer
song, "Undone – The Sweater Song".[23] Jonze made his film debut in a bit part in the drama Mi Vida Loca
Mi Vida Loca
(1994).[24] 1995–1999: In demand video director and Being John Malkovich[edit] Jonze collaborated with Björk
Björk
for the video for her 1995 single "It's Oh So Quiet", a cover of a 1951 Betty Hutton
Betty Hutton
song. The video is set in an auto shop and sees Björk
Björk
dancing and singing to the song in the style of a musical, inspired by Jacques Demy's The Umbrellas of Cherbourg.[25] He also directed the "rapid-paced" title sequence for the sitcom Double Rush and worked on videos for the likes of R.E.M., Sonic Youth, and Ween
Ween
in the same year.[26][27] Jonze sole video directing credit of 1996 was for The Pharcyde's "Drop", which was filmed backwards and then reversed.[28] In 1997, Jonze made a short film called How They Get There, starring Mark Gonzales as a man who is playfully imitating a woman's actions on the other side of a sidewalk before running into danger.[29] Jonze worked with the electronic music duo Daft Punk
Daft Punk
on the music video for the instrumental song "Da Funk" in 1997. The clip, titled Big City Nights, follows an anthropomorphic "man-dog" wandering the streets of New York City.[30] His video for The Chemical Brothers's "Elektrobank" (1997) starred his future wife Sofia Coppola
Sofia Coppola
as a gymnast instructor.[31] Throughout 1997, he also worked on videos for R.E.M., Pavement, Puff Daddy, and The Notorious B.I.G..[32][33][34] He made a cameo appearance in David Fincher's film The Game (1997).[1] Jonze's filmed a short documentary in 1997, Amarillo by Morning, about two Texan boys who aspire to be bull riders.[35] He was also one of the cinematographers for the documentary Free Tibet, which documents the 1996 Tibetan Freedom Concert
Tibetan Freedom Concert
in San Francisco.[36] Jonze developed an alter ego named Richard Koufey (alternately spelled Coufey or Couffe), the leader of the Torrance Community Dance Group, an urban troupe that performs in public spaces.[2] The Koufey persona appeared when Jonze, in character, filmed himself dancing to Fatboy Slim's "The Rockafeller Skank" as it played on a boom box in a public area.[37] Jonze showed the video to Slim, who appears briefly in the video.[38] Jonze then assembled a group of dancers to perform to Slim's "Praise You" outside a Westwood, California movie theater and taped the performance.[39][2] The resulting clip was a huge success, and "Koufey" and his troupe were invited to New York City
New York City
to perform the song for the 1999 MTV
MTV
Video Music Awards.[40] The video received awards for Best Direction, Breakthrough, and Best Choreography, which Jonze accepted, still in character.[40] Jonze made a short mockumentary about the experience called Torrance Rises (1999).[13] Jonze made his feature length directorial debut Being John Malkovich in 1999. It stars John Cusack, Cameron Diaz, Catherine Keener, and John Malkovich, playing himself. The screenplay was written by Charlie Kaufman and follows a puppeteer who finds a portal in an office that leads to the mind of actor John Malkovich. Kaufman's script was passed on to Jonze by his father-in-law Francis Ford Coppola
Francis Ford Coppola
and he agreed to direct it,[41] "delighted by its originality and labyrinthine plot".[42] Being John Malkovich
Being John Malkovich
was released in October 1999 to laudatory reviews; the Chicago Sun-Times
Chicago Sun-Times
critic Roger Ebert
Roger Ebert
found the film to be "endlessly inventive" and named it the best film of 1999,[43][44] while Owen Gleiberman of Entertainment Weekly
Entertainment Weekly
called it the "most excitingly original movie of the year".[45] At the 72nd Academy Awards, the film was nominated for Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress for Keener.[46] Jonze co-starred opposite George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg
Mark Wahlberg
and Ice Cube

in David O. Russell's war comedy Three Kings (1999), which depicts a gold heist by four U.S. soliders following the end of the Gulf War. Jonze's role in the film, the sweet, dimwitted, casually racist PFC Conrad Vig, was written specifically for him.[47] Jonze also directed a commercial for Nike called "The Morning After" in 1999, a parody of the hysteria surrounding Y2K.[48] 2000–2008: Adaptation and Jackass[edit] Jonze returned to video directing in 2000, helming the video for the song "Wonderboy" by the comedy duo Tenacious D.[49] Along with Johnny Knoxville and Jeff Tremaine, Jonze co-created, executive produced and occasionally appeared in the television series Jackass in 2000, which aired on MTV
MTV
for three seasons until 2002.[50] The show featured a group of people performing dangerous stunts and pranks on each other. At the request of Al Gore's presidential campaign in 2000, Jonze directed a short video about Gore at his home. The video was shown at the Democratic National Convention.[51] He collaborated with Fatboy Slim for a second a time in 2001, directing the video for "Weapon of Choice", starring Christopher Walken
Christopher Walken
dancing around a deserted hotel lobby.[52] The video won multiple awards at the 2001 MTV

Susan Orlean
and was written by Charlie Kaufman.[55] The metafilm starred Nicolas Cage

Where the Wild Things Are

The Hollywood Reporter
praised Jonze for taking an old theme "the search for love and the need to 'only connect'" and embracing it "in a speculative way that feels very pertinent to the moment and captures the emotional malaise of a future just an intriguing step or two ahead of contemporary reality."[98] Scott Foundas of Variety opined that it was Jonze's "richest and most emotionally mature work to date".[99] At the 86th Academy Awards, Jonze was nominated for three Academy Awards for Her, winning for Best Original Screenplay and receiving further nominations for Best Picture and Best Original Song for co-writing "The Moon Song" with Karen O.[100] Jonze won the Golden Globe Award for Best Screenplay at the 71st Golden Globe Awards.[101] Jonze co-wrote, co-produced, and appeared in Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa (2013), a hidden camera comedy film starring Johnny Knoxville as the vulgar grandfather Irvin Zisman.
