JOHNNY SIMMONS (DAVE) is set to become one of the most sought after
young actors in Hollywood. Hailing from Texas, it did not take long for
Simmons to get his first role opposite Steve Carrell in the Universal feature film,
“Evan Almighty.” Soon thereafter, Simmons booked the Lion’s Gate feature film,
“The Spirit,” based on the graphic novel of the same name. Simmons worked
opposite Samuel L. Jackson, Eva Mendes and Scarlett Johansson in the role of
the Young Spirit in this visionary film, which opened Christmas Day in 2008.
Simmons can also be seen later this year playing the lead role of Chip in
“Jennifer’s Body,” Academy Award® winner Diablo Cody’s follow up to “Juno.”
Produced by Academy Award® nominee Jason Reitman and directed by Karyn
Kusama, the film also stars Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried. This dark comedy
tells the perilous tale of teenage life in a small town where a zombie disguised as
the most popular girl in school eats and kills the student body.
Simmons recently wrapped production on the independent character
drama “The Greatest” opposite Susan Sarandon and Pierce Brosnan.
He currently resides in Los Angeles.
