His favorite bands are Guns N' Roses, AC/DC and Black Sabbath, and he is teaching himself to play their songs on the guitar. Bennett loves to watch horror films. A Nightmare On Elm Street and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre are among his favorites. Bennett appeared in nearly 30 commercials (27 of which were in his first year of acting), as well as in episodes of the television series The Guardian and Strong Medicine, before being cast in the role "Tony", the boy who wants to be The Flash, in the Eddie Murphy comedy Daddy Day Care.

He has also appeared in Judging Amy, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and Everwood, and lent his voice to characters in the animated films The Polar Express, "Winnie the Pooh: Springtime With Roo" and "I Want a Dog For Christmas, Charlie Brown". He has been nominated for Young Artist Awards three times.

The films were released in March and April, respectively. He was called "Jimmy Two-Takes" on the set of "Hostage", because of his ability to deliver his lines perfectly. In February 2006, Bennett appeared in the thriller Firewall, where he played the son of Harrison Ford's character. He also played an abused boy in The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things, an independent film that was released a month after Firewall.
