J.K. Simmons Says He's Open To Playing J. Jonah Jameson In THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2

J.K. Simmons, who famously brought the role of Peter Parker's Editor In Chief, J. Jonah Jameson, to life in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy says that he is open to exploring the character again in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.


J.K. Simmons is famous for a lot of things, perhaps the role that has made him famous to most fan-boys is how perfectly he acted a J. Jonah Jameson in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy. To most people he is the definitive version of the character having voiced him in the new Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon as well. While chatting at The Television Critics Association Press Tour, via Crave Online Simmons was asked if he would ever do the role again for the new set of Spider-Man movies that Marc Webb just stared. “Oh, I’m open to anything. Obviously that was enormous fun playing that character. A big part of the fun was doing it with Sam and with Tobey. Like I said I literally have not seen the movie. I don’t even know tonally how different it may or may not be. I’m a fan of the actors, the director and everything else. Yeah, I’m always open,” he said. Along with saying that he hasn't seen the new film going on to say that he said goodbye to J.J. along time ago. He also said that he feels like the carpet got yanked out from underneath the first franchises feet, although he says it's water under the bridge.
