Trivia that mentions this person:
Terminator Genisys [2015]
  • Even though most of the cast play characters with American accents minus Arnold Schwarzenegger (T-800), most of the cast are not American themselves. Emilia Clarke (Sarah Connor) and Matt Smith (T-5000/Skynet) are British, Jai Courtney (Kyle Reese) and Jason Clarke (John Connor/ T-3000) are Australian, Byung-hun Lee (T-1000) is South Korean and Dayo Okeniyi (Danny Dyson) is Nigerian. Only J.K. Simmons (Detective O'Brien) and Courtney B. Vance (Miles Dyson) are the only two real Americans in the main cast.
    The Amazing Spider-Man 2 [2014]
  • The humorously hateful news boss J. Jonah Jameson, one of the most iconic characters in Spider-man's mythos, was never mentioned in The Amazing Spider-Man. In this sequel he is spoken of frequently but never appears. The producers claimed they could not find an actor to measure up to J.K. Simmons' legendary portrayal of this character in Sam Raimi's Spider-man films. Stan Lee, the writer who came up with the idea for these characters and makes cameo appearances in all the films, has often said he would volunteer to play Jameson if he (Lee) were 30 or 40 years younger.
    Kong: Skull Island [2017]
  • Michael Keaton and J.K. Simmons were originally attached to the film, but both had to drop out, due to scheduling conflicts. John C. Reilly took over Keaton's role, while Samuel L. Jackson replaced Simmons.
    Spider-Man: Homecoming [2017]
  • J.K. Simmons had previously expressed interest in returning to the role of J. Jonah Jameson (the role that he played in the Sam Raimi trilogy, and also voiced the character in Ultimate Spider-Man). However, once he was cast as Comissioner Gordon in Justice League, all discussion of this happening ceased.
