This Lansing actor left the area nearly 20 years ago soon after playing Fagin in Riverwalk’s Oliver! He’s had some success and some struggles in L.A. since, and now plays a recurring, small, but notable role as barfly “Kermit” in Showtime’s Shameless, AND is having a documentary made about his life…https://www.actinglikenothingiswrong.com AND also just got laid off from his “day job” at Weight Watchers.
Now he’s getting all electronic on us in these new virtual times. You can purchase a “Cameo” personalized message from him for birthdays or any occasion, https://www.cameo.com/search?q=Jim Hoffmaster&nodeType=user&nodeId=5dcefa1eaa0dc401701bb3b0
AND he has just started a Podcast, which is free to listen to, but I think he may get some money from ads or such? https://anchor.fm/jim-hoffmaster/episodes/Artistic-Expression-vs-Entertaining-Myself-eemsod
So — check it out, if you remember Jim — or even if you don’t. He’s an interesting guy!
