He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, actress Jeanne Syquia, who has a role in “Buddymoon.” When Inland 360 caught up with Simmons for an update he said he’d recently returned from India where he was filming a documentary for the clothing company Patagonia and he’s at work developing more movie and TV projects with his friends Giuntoli and Borg. More importantly, he noted, he and Syquia are expecting their first child this summer.
