Jimmy is a character in the 3D Universe who can be heard on the radio in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Jimmy played a fictional character in the show Just the Five of Us under the same name.
Jimmy is a child actor who began his acting career at some point prior to 1986 when he was one of the stars of the television show Just the Five of Us. His role on the show involved him being adopted by Mr. Chesterfield (Claude Maginot) and his wife along with Shawn and Charlotte in a "mix up". The three, who are likely adults in the shows narrative, are then treated like children by the Chesterfields with Jimmy's catchphrase being "But I'm 42!". He then explains that he has a "rare disease", which results in his child like appearance. He also states that he is an investment banker and is sexually active.
Six years later, the show had been cancelled and replaced by My Five Uncles. Despite his continued claims that he is fifty-one years old, he attends a child actor's convention at The Four Dragons Casino in Las Venturas. While attending the convention, he is arrested by the Las Venturas Police Department for possessing cocaine, which he claims is "just flour, I swear!", as he is being dragged from the casino. He is asked about "My Five Uncles" by WCTR news reporter Richard Burns, who is then punched in the groin by Jimmy who then insults Burns, calling him "a liberal media bastard".
- Jimmy is is a reference to actors wp:Emmanuel Lewis' dwarfism and Gary Coleman's kidney condition, which makes both actors look like small children even though Lewis is 43 years old (as of 2014) and Coleman who was 42 years old when he died on May 28, 2010.
