Hi, I'm Jimmy Hager, character actor. I was born in North Carolina, but grew up in Charleston, SC. Family and friends throughout the southeast, I have learned all the native dialects, as well as how to flatten my voice for a typical mid western non-accent. I started my stage career playing Atticus Finch in To Kill A Mockingbird at The Dock Street Theater, then worked onstage in over 35 stage productions through out the theater district in Charleston SC I have been in two dozen films opposite stars like Julia Ormond, Sam Shepard, Joe Anderson and Jim Caviezel , over 100 TV commercials, most of them National, as a Radio Host, TV Broadcast Host and Journalist, Public Speaker, and most recently as an audio book reader. I have a small home studio and access to two professional recording studios here in Columbia SC. I am a natural mimic and feel confident I can reproduce any dialect provided an example is available. I only speak variations of English fluently but I can copy any language phonetically. I will gladly send an audition .mp3 file to anyone who requests one.
