Jim Meskimen Biography

As a professional actor for nearly thirty years Jim has appeared in the films "Apollo 13," "The Grinch," "Frost/Nixon," "The Punisher," "Not Forgotten," "There Will Be Blood" and many others. Some of Jim’s TV credits include "Friends," "Whose Line is it, Anyway?," "Fresh Prince of Bel Air," "Castle," "Lie to Me" and "Rules of Engagement."

In the 1980s & '90s he had a thriving career as a man-on-the-street interviewer for improvised TV and radio campaigns for grocery stores, bank cards, coffee makers and a host of other clients that won awards for several major advertising agencies.

As an impressionist, his impressions of political figures in the 2004 election were showcased in animated cartoons by Jibjab that were among the most popular items on the Internet. His viral video, Shakespeare in Celebrity Voices topped three-quarters of a million views in 2011 and his subsequent impressions videos have cemented him as a major YouTube talent.

The Australian Today Show dubbed him, “The World’s Greatest Impressionist.”

Meskimen lives in Los Angeles with his wife, actress and founder of The Acting Center school, Tamra Meskimen. His daughter, Taylor, is also a performer, and his mother is actress Marion Ross, who was Emmy- and Golden Globe-nominated for her work on "Happy Days" (as Richie’s mom) and "Brooklyn Bridge."
