An American actor and musician. He is known for his roles as a child actor in Daddy Day Care, Hostage, Poseidon, Evan Almighty, Orphan and as young James T. Kirk in the 2009 film Star Trek. He also starred on the ABC series No Ordinary Family as JJ Powell, a teenager gifted with vast intelligence after a plane crash.
James 'Jimmy' Bennett was born on February 9, 1996 in Seal Beach, California. He has appeared in guest starring roles on The Guardian (2001), Judging Amy (1999), CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (2000) and recently Everwood (2002), and has been cast in some of the most successful productions in that decade.
At age six Jimmy said he wanted to be on TV. This aspiration soon came true when he began booking commercials, doing nine in two years; major motion pictures weren't far from reality now.
Jimmy has also enjoyed doing voice-over roles, a fun aspect of the television and movie industry. He has lent his voice to Rerun in I Want a Dog for Christmas, Charlie Brown (2003), Roo in Winnie the Pooh: Springtime with Roo (2004), Lonely Boy in The Polar Express (2004) and repeated as the voice of Roo, this time for Pooh's Heffalump Movie (2005).
Jimmy completed Hostage (2005), a crime thriller starring Bruce Willis, and The Amityville Horror (2005), an update to the 1979 horror classic.
In February 2006, Bennett appeared in the thriller Firewall, where he played the son of Harrison Ford's character. He also played an abused boy named Jeremiah (aged 7) sharing the role with Dylan and Cole Sprouse playing the older Jeremiah (aged 11) in The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things, an independent film that was released a month after Firewall. Also in 2006, he voiced Roo in the Disney/Square-Enix video game Kingdom Hearts II and appeared in Poseidon, a remake of the 1972 film The Poseidon Adventure. His 2007 roles included South of Pico, an independent film, and Evan Almighty, a sequel to the 2003 film Bruce Almighty. He appeared as a young James T. Kirk in the 2009 film Star Trek. He also starred in the 2009 film Orphan and the TV series No Ordinary Family.
Bennett also starred in the film Bones, featuring him alongside famed Ozzy Osbourne guitarist and Black Label Society frontman Zakk Wylde. Bones is described as a "heartbreaking coming-of-age story of four teens growing up in 1989 blue-collar Long Island, New York, and the bond that would tie them together for life." It is noteworthy that in 2009, Jimmy Bennett starred in the leading role of the film Alabama Moon.
In August 2011, Bennett released his debut single "Over Again" and the accompanying music video.
