My name is Steven Sims. I’m a producer and actor from Los Angeles and from 2007 to 2010 I was known as the other Jonah Hill. Now, a decade later, I am publicly discussing my life as a celebrity look-a-like with the people who were a part of it, and my good friend and co-host, Josh Larkin, who missed all of it. My Life as a Celebrity Look-A-Like is an eight-part podcast series with new episodes available every Tuesday.
