Timothy Simons is an American comedian and actor best known for his role as Jonah Ryan on HBO’s hit comedy series Veep, which returns for its seventh and final season on March 31. A prolific performer, he has also appeared in such films as Inherent Vice, The Interview, Christine, Draft Day, The Boss and Beneath the Harvest Sky, which was shot in his native Maine. He lives in Los Angeles.
On the latest episode of the Talkhouse Podcast, we mark the imminent return of Veep for its seventh and final season with a conversation between two of the show’s cast members, Timothy Simons and Brian Huskey. Simons and Huskey – who play manchild Jonah Ryan and pesky political reporter Leon West, respectively – have a hilarious and wide-ranging talk that takes in everything from the perils (and occasional positives) of social media and getting sincere in middle age, to shilling for free stuff on podcasts and, of course, their show’s swan song season. Plus, we see how long their pledge to not talk about Trump actually lasts and find out exactly what happened when Tim went to a Tony Robbins-designed Pitbull show at a celebrity golf tournament!
