Birthday: Nov 21, 1975

Birthplace: Hackettstown, New Jersey, USA

An offbeat presence in films and on television since 2000, character actor Jimmi Simpson gave memorable performances as off-center, occasionally sinister figures in such projects as "Rose Red" (ABC, 2002), "Zodiac" (2006), "The Invention of Lying" (2009) and "Date Night" (2010). Simpson's lanky frame and intense gaze evoked memories of Christopher Walken's early career, and the two actors shared a similar path in terms of their roles, though Simpson's knack for comedy allowed him to work more regularly in that genre - most notably in a recurring role as one of the weird McPoyle brothers on "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" (FX, 2005- ). Simpson soon graduated from independent features and television to Hollywood projects like "Date Night" and "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" (2012) and the action-drama "Breakout Kings" (A&E, 2011-12), in which he played a psychologist-turned-convict who aided the law in tracking down escaped prisoners. He stayed true to his roots with smaller, oddball projects like the comedy "Knights of Badassdom" (2013), but his mainstream breakout on "House of Cards" (Netflix 2013- ) underscored his growing popularity as one of the most versatile character actors in the business.

QUOTES FROM Jimmi Simpson CHARACTERS

Bob says: Hi, I'm Bob I'm the spokesperson for the Coca-Cola company. I'm here today to ask you to continue buying coke. Sure it's a drink you've been drinking for years, and if you still enjoy it, I'd like to remind you to buy it again sometime soon. It's basically just brown sugar water, we haven't changed the ingredients much lately, so there's nothing new I can tell you about that. We changed the can around a little bit though. See, the colors here are different there, and we added a polar bear so the kids like us. Coke is very high in sugar and like any high calorie soda it can lead to obesity in children and adults who don't sustain a very healthy diet. So that's it, it's coke. It's very famous, everyone knows it. I'm Bob, I work for coke, and I'm asking you to not stop buying coke. That's all.It's a bit sweet. Thank you. Share this quote
