JK Simmons open to star in 'Spider Man' again
(7 months ago)
Washington D.C. [U.S.A], November 9 : Oscar-winning actor JK Simmons has revealed that he would happily return as the J. Jonah Jameson in Marvel's new franchise.
The 62-year-old-actor has shared that he loved playing Jameson and would very much like to make a return to the character in Tom Holland's Spider-Man films, according to Contactmusic.
While speaking in an interview to a entertainment channel, Simmons said, "I never say never. I mean, you know, obviously I had an amazing time with Sam Raimi on those movies and Tobey Maguire and everybody. That was a great, great time and huge for my career and my life, and just pure fun."
Adding, "If there were an opportunity to revisit that, I don't know though. How old is 'Spider-Man' going to be if J. Jonah Jameson is this old?"
J.K Simmons' J. Jonah Jameson was so true to the character that Marc Webb's 'The Amazing Spider Man' films never even attempted to cast the cantankerous newsman.
At the moment J.K. Simmons finds himself on the other side of the comic book aisle in the DC side of things as he takes on the role of Commissioner James Gordon in Warner Bros' 'Justice League'.
Helmed by Zack Snyder, the flick is slated on November 17.
