Ty Simpkins is joining the cast of THE NICE GUYS. Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling star in the crime thriller as a recovering alcoholic and a private investigator who are brought together by the suicide of a fading porn star. Together, they launch an investigation after the girl’s aunt swears she saw her niece after her “death” and find that the conspiracy is more far reaching than they expected. Simpkins will play Bobby, a young boy whose shocking discovery ignites the mystery Crowe and Gosling are forced to solve.
Although Simpkins is young, he already has an impressive resume of acting roles, including films like War of the Worlds, Little Children, Revolutionary Road, and Insidious. Most recently, Simpkins has appeared in Insidious: Chapter 2 and Iron Man 3. His upcoming projects are just as impressive – Simpkins has been cast in Reed Morano’s drama Meadowland and Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World.
Simpkins is repped by ICM.
