Jim went to Thornton Fractional South High School in Lansing, Illinois, after which he enrolled at Loyola University from where he graduated with a degree in theatre.
Starting in the late ‘80s, Jim became a part of the comedy sketch group White Noise, which focused on black comedy and bizarre humor. With them he appeared in several plays, including “The Book of Blanche”, which revolved around the woman who fell through a television screen, and finds herself in a made-up world which is greatly influenced by various genres. He then worked with Tom Griffin in the play “The Boys Next Door”, which premiered at the Edgewater Theatre Center. Continuing with White Noise, Jim appeared in “Stumpy’s Gang”, and “Ad-Nauseam”, receiving rather positive critiques for both performances, and so slowly building his net worth.
Starting in the mid- ‘90s, Jim brought his acting talents to the screen, firstly in the film “Harvey” (1996), and then continued with minor roles in such TV series as “ER” (1996), “3rd Rock from the Sun” (1996), and “Ally McBeal” (1999), among many others, which helped him gain popularity, while also increasing his net worth. Then in 2000 he got his first big break, as Harv Krudup in the sitcom “Strip Mall” (2000-2001), next to Julie Brown, who was his wife in the show. He was then cast in several minor roles, and has credits in such shows as “Friends” (2004), “Boston Legal” (2004), and “Desperate Housewives” (2006), which also added to his net worth. In 2009 he was selected for the role of Jerry Gergich in the sitcom “Parks and Recreation” (2009-2015), next to Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman. The particular role significantly increased his wealth, and enabled him new starring roles even during his continued participation in the series. Unfortunately, Jim just couldn’t profit from the role, and continued with mediocre performances into the new decade, with only few a appearances worth mentioning. Some of them include the role of Bill Winters in the romantic comedy “Life in Color” (2015), and as Huck Huckerson in the comedy “Sleep Away” (2017).
