Johnny Simmons is quickly gaining momentum in his burgeoning acting career. With a handful of auditions to his credit, Simmons impressed Tom Shadyac enough to win the role of Evan Baxter's eldest son and make his acting debut in Evan Almighty.
Born in Dallas, the 19-year-old arrived in Los Angeles prepared. At the early age of 12, the acting bug bit him. Even at that age, he knew he would come to California when he turned 18. He spent his teen years finding an agent who would help him get his SAG card, so he would be able to work immediately upon his arrival in L.A.
Only after a handful of auditions, Simmons has found himself breaking down doors that it takes most actors a lifetime to open. Getting down to the wire on a few huge franchise studio pictures before landing his current gig makes Johnny definitely one to watch as Hollywood's newest rising young star.
Currently, Simmons is in production on the horror film Boogeyman 2.
