Since then, he has co-starred in several films with various well-known actors, such as Billy Bob Thornton in One False Move (1992). In 1994, he took his creative talents to another level when he established "Little Bridge Productions", a production company he formed and ran with his brother and best friend, actor Todd Bridges. During this time, Jimmy successfully co-directed and produced the full-length feature films: Big Ball'n (2007), Flossin (2001), Black Ball (2003) and Foster Babies (2007). He also produced the movie, Frankie D (2007), which received several awards at the New York Film Festival. Jimmy now serves as the Head of Artist Development and Management for "DV Filmworks", a production company he helped form with fellow actor, Shashawnee Hall, and brother Todd Bridges, in 2006. Jimmy continues to act, direct and produce and, as Head Screenwriter for "DV Filmworks", had his first screenplay optioned in 2007. In 2010, "DV Filmworks" has sold several reality shows and has his brother's life story slated for early 2012.
