‘Westworld’ Star Jimmi Simpson: From Weirdo to Hero


Eagle-eyed television fans noticed the new face on Westworld this weekend. Jimmi Simpson has made a career playing outcasts, freaks and weirdos: most notably on shows like House of Cards (where he was the hacker with the guinea pig), Breakout Kings (as a gambling addict con man) or It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (where he’s part of the incestuous, milk-guzzling McPoyle clan). Coming off a limited-engagement run of Empathitrax at HERE Theater in New York, Simpson sat down with the Observer to discuss what happens when the weirdo gets to become the hero.
