James Raymond “Jimmi” Simpson was born on November 21, 1975 in Hackettstown, New Jersey, USA as James Raymond Simpson. Jimmi is the youngest of three brothers. His parents encouraged him and his two older brothers to do “whatever makes you happy”. They supported his acting aspirations, including the move from New Jersey to New York, where he could concentrate on theatrical roles. Jimmi used to do theater in High School. He had excellent SAT scores. When he graduated high school he chose an affordable state college. Originally he had attended for a business and english. Jimmi has admitted in various interviews that he wasn’t a motivated student in high school or his early college years.

While at Bloomsberg University he signed up for an Introduction to Theatre class at the end of his sophomore year, thinking it would be easy: a mass lecture class he could skip whenever he wanted. And that’s what he did until his theatre arts professor Karen Anselm, who he insists is “one of the greatest teachers in the world,” told him he could pass the course only if he worked hard on the final. “The final was the first time I put my heart and soul into it.” And he loved it. “I spent my junior and senior years as a theatre major. I worked hard the last couple years of college.” Outside of class, he appeared in BU Players productions, including his role of John Wilkes Booth in Assassins, directed by the late Michael Collins.

After graduating from Bloomsburg University with a Bachelor of Arts in theater, he worked in theater at the Flat Rock Playhouse in Flat Rock, North Carolina. He then spent four seasons at the Williamstown Theatre Festival in Massachusetts where he met Charlie Day and Sterling K. Brown. “I went and got an apprenticeship at the Williamstown Theatre Festival where I had to pay them. I had a motorcycle, and I sold it for two grand and gave the money to Williamstown. In return, they let me build their set along with like 50 other young actors who had no experience and just wanted to be close to the business.” He first met his agent during a master class held by a comedian. His stand-up routine was seen by the comedian’s agent, who signed him. “I took a stand-up class taught by Lewis Black. As we were performing our ridiculous bits in front of our friends, [Black] came in with his agent, who was there to see him do a play. It was this lucky situation where [the agent] happened to see me, liked what I was doing, and said, ‘I’d like to send you out for work.’”
