Hollywood hasn’t fazed this great guy, who isready to share his experience as a REAL working actor in Los Angeles with YOU. Jim Hanna was born and raised in Lincoln and graduated from UNL in 1991. After, he moved to LA to get an MFA at USC and has been here ever since. After years of the “starving actor” routine, he began working and has carved out a steady career in TV, film, and commercials.
He’s appeared in 100+ commercials and has dozens of film and TV credits, including roles in FRIENDS, WILL & GRACE, THE X-FILES, WAR OF THE WORLDS, RAY DONOVAN, PARKS AND REC, MOM, BATTLE OF THE SEXES, JANE THE VIRGIN and LA’S FINEST. Most recently he has appeared in ABC’s STATION 19 HBO’s upcoming PERRY MASON, and the Nebraska-set ABC comedy BLESS THIS MESS where he plays…a New Yorker visiting Nebraska.
He’s also appeared often in LA’s small theaterswith award winning roles in OTHELLO and EQUUS, among others. He’s a regular contributor to The Hollywood Fringe Festival as an actor, writer, and producer. His most recent effort, THE MAYOR’S DEBATE OF TRANQUILITY, NEBRASKA, was nominated for 7 awards including Best Comedy, and won the Theatre Unleashed Award for Top Ensemble Production. Even after nearly 29 years in LA, his Nebraska upbringing continues to influence his life and work.
