Nicole Weaver over at Cheatsheet.com asked Jimmi 7 questions about Westworld and Black Mirror. You can view the original article over at this link. I have copied/pasted the questions and answers below as well as logged it into our press archive.

Q: You already did Westworld,which is kinda sci-fi futuristic, and now you’re doing this show, which is kind of in the same vein, but very focused on something else. How do those two things differ for you?

Jimmi Simpson: I think they’re both real close actually. If I’m being honest, [Westworld creator] Charlie [Brooker] won’t watch Westworld until he’s done with Black Mirror and vice versa. [Jonathan Nolan] and [Lisa Joy] over at Westworld won’t watch Black Mirror until they’re done with Westworld.

They both believe, and I do as well, that material is pertinent, and it’s all talking about VR or artificial intelligence in general. So I think that both are very much fantastic. Westworld is just a little bit more fantasy and Charlie’s scratching the surface of what is. So it’s kind of a little more immediate.

Q: How did you get involved with Black Mirror?

Simpson: I got an offer to do Black Mirror. I’m not an offer, lot of offers, kind of guy, so I did assume that it would be a very tiny little role, which I would have flipped to do. I assumed, then I read the role, and saw that it was actually — it was gorgeous. It was a role I would have chosen if I was given the choice, and so I couldn’t believe it. I don’t know exactly why that happened. Whose idea it was and why it was approved. I’m so grateful!

Q: It seems like a lot of actors are interested in [Black Mirror]. We just saw Bryce Dallas Howard start off last season and everything like that. Do you think it’s because it’s one episode and it’s more movie quality, even though it’s for television?

Simpson: I think that definitely kind of bolsters it, when you think about committing time to it, but the real draw is Charlie [Brooker] and his brains. I think the story is, like I said, just how pertinent things are and then you get to be part of that discussion. You know, most of us artists are trying to comment somehow or off of something, and Charlie’s kind of giving that too.

Q: Most of your recent projects are about technology. How has that shaped how you now view technology?

Simpson: I think it’s given me more a little more awareness. I think [Jonathan Nolan], Lisa [Joy], and Charlie [Brooker] are infinitely more intelligent than I am and they’re aware and know what’s happening. And so just by proximity, I feel like I know a little bit more, a little bit more than last by asking ‘What is happening? What is actually possible? And what would I do?’

Q: Can you give me a little description of your Black Mirror character?

Simpson: So he’s kind of the Jonathan Frakes Next Gen Star Trek. He’s the first, he’s subordinate to the captain, played by Jesse [Plemons], kind of Kirk-inspired.
