Here is a list of all movies by American actor Jimmie Walker.

James Carter Walker Jr., born on June 25, 1947, is a well-known American actor and comedian, most notably recognized for his portrayal of James Evans Jr. ("J.J.") in the CBS television series "Good Times," running from 1974 to 1979. Walker's character became iconic, using the catchphrase "Dyn-O-Mite!" which also featured in commercials and continued in a 2021-2023 Medicare commercial. Born in Brooklyn, New York, and raised in the Bronx, Walker's journey into entertainment began after attending Theodore Roosevelt High School and pursuing radio engineering through the SEEK program. He started as a vendor at Yankee Stadium during the 1964 World Series and later worked full-time with WRVR, a radio station affiliated with the Riverside Church.

His breakthrough came when he ventured into stand-up comedy, catching the eye of the casting director for "Good Times" after appearances on shows like "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In" and "The Jack Paar Show." Walker's fame skyrocketed with "Good Times," where his character's catchphrase became a sensation, even though he was considerably older than the role he portrayed. Despite the show's success, Walker faced conflicts with some cast members due to the direction of his character. This tension resulted in the departure of key cast members, leaving Walker as the show's main star.

Beyond "Good Times," Walker's career includes numerous guest appearances on various TV shows, such as "The Tonight Show," "Match Game," "Fantasy Island," "The Drew Carey Show," "Scrubs," and others. He appeared in several films like "Airplane!" (1980), "Water" (1985), and "Plump Fiction" (1997). He also had stints in radio hosting and made cameo appearances in movies and TV shows like "Big Money Rustlas" (2010) and "The Bold and the Beautiful" (2023).

Walker's personal life and political views have been a subject of public interest. He has never been married but has had many girlfriends. Politically, he describes himself as a "realist independent" and holds conservative positions on various issues, including opposition to affirmative action and gay marriage on moral grounds, despite believing in its legalization. Walker has elaborated on his political beliefs in his autobiography, "Dyn-O-Mite: Good Times, Bad Times, Our Times: A Memoir," identifying as a "logicist" who values logic and common sense.
