J.K. Simmons Reflects On His Role As J Jonah Jameson From Spider-Man

J.K. Simmons is one of the most recognizable actors today. Simmons has played many great characters like B.R. from Thank You For Smoking and Cave Johnson from the game Portal 2. He’s been in so many projects and the role that really got his career going was J Jonah Jameson from Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy. In fact, he’s taken on the character many times and in my opinion, no one else can fill the shoes of that grouchy, webslinger-hating, miser we all love.

Simmons On His Role In Spider-Man

In an interview with Den of Geek, J.K. Simmons shared how he felt about his career with the Spider-Man trilogy and about his return to the character:

Those movies with Sam will always be big highlights of my career and my life. Sam is one of my favorite directors and human beings.

When asked to return as Jameson in Spider-Man: Far From Home, he was more than happy to:

To have the opportunity to kind of do a reboot of the character, I was eager to hang on to the things I really loved about it and totally open to letting go of some of that, and realizing we are in a more updated version of that universe. Hopefully, we found the sweet spot there.

J Jonah Jameson has more or less remained the same and Simmons agrees:

For a lot of characters, that evolution is a really important aspect. I like the lack of evolution of that character. There are ways that he’s evolved, but he’s the same blowhard… and that’s what I enjoy doing.

It was such a shocking moment seeing J Jonah Jameson at the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home. I freaking loved it and I’m so glad he’s back. Jameson is such an amazing character and I think he brings the story of Spider-Man up to an eleven.
