Ben McKenzie Slept in a Bunk Bed When He First Moved to NYC!

Ben McKenzie carries his suit inside the Jimmy Kimmel Live! studios before making an appearance on the show on Wednesday (February 17) in Los Angeles.

The 37-year-old Gotham star chatted with Jimmy Kimmel about his first years in New York City as an unemployed actor.

“I love New York…I started off there. I was an unemployed actor. I actually shared a bunk bed with my old roommate. I was 23 years old,” Ben said. “I had to share a room.”
