Joe Thomas is most well known for his role as "Simon Cooper" in The Inbetweeners. "Simon" is the oldest of his group which includes "Jay", "Will" and "Neil". "Simon" is the member of the group who desperately wants to impress his crush "Carly" and be with her but can't quite find a way to do it - usually making himself look a fool. Let's see what "Simon" is doing today!

The Inbetweeners (2008-2010) follows the life of suburban teenagers "Will", "Simon", "Neil" and "Jay" from Rudge Park Comprehensive School. The programme involves situations of school life, uncaring school staff, friendship, male bonding, lad culture and largely failed sexual encounters.
