In the same year that Jimmi Simpson was cast in the role of mentally unstable computer hacker Gavin Orsay on House of Cards, he starred opposite Tom Hanks in Steven Spielberg’s Catch Me If You Can. Ten years later, he appeared in two high-profile movies, portraying dissimilar characters. In Black Panther, Simpson played N’Jobu, an anti-war rebel who was killed by his own brother T’Chaka after being convinced to join Ulysses Klaue’s terrorist organization. Jimmi Simpson’s Most Memorable Roles
Not many people would guess that Jimmi Simpson is one of Hollywood’s most sought-after actors, but he is. His standout role was as Gavin Orsay in Mr. Robot, which immediately established him as an actor to watch. But what are his most memorable roles? Here are five examples
House of Cards
One of Jimmi Simpson’s most recognizable roles is Gavin Orsay on House of Cards, where he played a hacker that works secretly with Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly) in exchange for help escaping out of country. For his portrayal, he received wide acclaim from critics and viewers alike, leading to his comeback as Noah Solloway on HBO’s Westworld. Recently, he appeared alongside Zachary Quinto and Ellen Page in The Parts You Lose—the first film ever funded through crowdfunding platform Seed & Spark. While it hasn’t been announced yet, Jimmi Simpson has been hinting at making an appearance in season 4 of Hulu’s 11/22/63 series based off Stephen King’s novel of same name.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D
The star has a recurring role as Bobbi Morse, aka Mockingbird, an S.H.I.E.L.D spy and assassin extraordinaire who’s on a bit of a downward spiral after her breakup with Lance Hunter (Nick Blood). We’re looking forward to seeing how she and Lance work together—and not together—in future episodes of Agent Carter Season 2 when it returns in 2016 on ABC (or if you have Netflix, right now!).
