Celebrity Travel: Go away with Jocko Sims

Jae-Ha Kim, Tribune Content Agency on

A: My first television series was Starz’s first original series, “Crash,” and I played opposite the late great Dennis Hopper. The show was loosely based on what was my favorite movie of the time of the same name. We shot it in Albuquerque, New Mexico, for two years.

Q: This pandemic has made everyone think differently about how we spend our free time. What have you been doing?

A: My favorite thing that I discovered during the pandemic was my love for cycling. I purchased a bike and now I’m an avid cyclist all throughout Manhattan.

Q: How do you feel about not being able to just hop on a plane without restrictions for work?

A: Right now, I feel good about it, because I have the best job right here in New York City.

Q: If you had travel plans that had to be canceled because they coincided with the pandemic, where were they to?


A: “New Amsterdam” was going to take the entire cast and many of our producers and crew to the Dominican Republic to film our season two finale. COVID-19 hit us all and that plan quickly went away.

Q: If you could only pick one place to eat, would you choose a casual meal at a street cart or fine dining at a nice restaurant?

A: I would pick Pappadeaux. It is a chain, mainly in the south of the U.S., like in Texas and Georgia. It’s Cajun seafood and everything on the menu is amazing.

Q: Do you speak any foreign languages?
