Jay Johnston

Jay Johnston (born October 22, 1968) is an American actor and comedian best known for his work as a writer and cast member on the HBO sketch comedy series Mr. Show and for playing the role of Officer Jay McPherson on The Sarah Silverman Program.

He voiced Bob's archenemy Jimmy Pesto.

It emerged in December 2021 that Johnston was reportedly banned from voicing Pesto following allegations that he took part in the January 6, 2021 capitol insurrection. Johnston was arrested and charged in connection with the Jan. 6 attack on June 7, 2023.[1] He was replaced by Eric Bauza as the voice of Jimmy Pesto. His trial for the crimes committed is set to begin on July 15, 2024. Johnston initially maintained his innocence until pleading guilty on July 8, 2024.[2]
