James Joseph "Jimmy" Wolk (born March 22, 1985) is an American actor.

Born in Farmington Hills, Michigan, to Edie (Elson), an art teacher, and Robert Wolk, a shoe store owner. His family is Jewish. Wolk graduated from North Farmington High School, and worked in his father's store as a teenager. He graduated from the University of Michigan drama school in 2007, and won the role of 'Brad Cohen' in CBS/ Hallmark Hall of Fame's Front of the Class. Based on the book of the same name, Wolk beautifully portrayed Brad, who has been challenged with Tourette Syndrome from a young age but defied all odds to become a gifted teacher.

In 2009, he landed the title role in the ABC pilot Solving Charlie directed by Gregory Hoblit. Wolk plays a young detective who, after his estranged father passes away, learns he has an 11 year old half-brother by the same name. His father's last wish is for Charlie to raise his younger brother.

Wolk played the lead role of 'Robert/Bob Taylor' in the 2010 FOX pilot Lone Star, directed by Marc Webb. Wolk played a con man who has wives in two different Texas towns and leads a double life. The cast included Eloise Mumford and Adrianne Palicki as Bob's two wives, veteran actor David Keith as Bob's con-artist father, and Oscar winner Jon Voight as a powerful Texas oilman whose daughter is one of Bob's wives.

Wolk also appeared in the 2010 Disney feature film You Again with 'Kristen Bell', 'Jamie Lee Curtis', 'Odette Yustman', 'Sigourney Weaver', and 'Kristin Chenoweth'.

In 2013, Wolk joined the Season 6 cast of Mad Men, playing mysterious junior account man Bob Benson. As the season progressed, Benson became one of the most talked-about characters on the show. In the 2013-14 television season, Wolk was part of the cast of the CBS sitcom The Crazy Ones, starring 'Robin Williams' and 'Sarah Michelle Gellar'. Wolk plays a womanizing creative at the Chicago ad agency headed by Williams and Gellar, marking his second role as a worker at an ad agency after Mad Men.

In November 2014, Wolk was cast in the starring role of the CBS summer drama Zoo, based on the novel by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge. Zoo premiered in June 2015.

Wolk is on the Board of Directors of the 'Brad Cohen' Tourette Foundation. He also volunteers at "Camp Twitch and Shout," which is a camp for children (ages 7–17) with Tourette syndrome in Georgia.

He resides in Los Angeles
