A young Denzel? (We’ll keep our fingers crossed!) Check out Jimmy V, this week’s #CastarSpotlight…
Jimmy is originally from Boston, MA where began performing in front of crowds as a dancer at a young age. No stranger to dance circles and center stage, Jimmy made the move to LA. He’s studied the acting craft and enjoys performing in front of the camera or on stage. Jimmy, like most Castar members, has had a wide range of work. One of his biggest and recent roles was as young LL Cool J in Showtime’s docu-series Shangri-La. You can catch his vibrant attitude and charming quirks on Power After Show as co-host, interviewing stars of the Power series.
Jimmy’s diligent training in acting, hosting , and modeling, has taken him far in Hollywood and will continue to. The past few years he has worked on creating his own content. From directing and producing short form sketch comedy, Jimmy has pushed himself into bigger projects. He is currently working on his own independent project: “Waiting Room”, the story of a police officer, drug dealer, and drug user in a therapist waiting room.
