J. K. Simmons Excited To Work With Ben Affleck In DCEU
Oscar-winning actor J. K. Simmons will work with superstar Ben Affleck in DC Extended Universe. Simmons said that he is very delighted to work with the Live By Night actor. He further stated that he is looking forward of working with him in future films in DCEU.
In an interview, when asked whether he loved working with Ben, Simmons said, "Oh absolutely, yeah. And I worked with Ben a couple of years ago on The Accountant and I met him years before that. So yes, I'm excited to work with him and hope to work with him on the other side of the camera at some point, as well."
He added, "He's obviously a talented filmmaker in addition to being the movie star that he is and the good actor that he is, which I think will continue to develop as we see Batman and Commissioner Gordon not be spring chickens and we get into some interesting stories about these weathered kinds of guys." Simmons also said that while he is confident that there will be more 'Justice League' films in the future, he believes that Commissioner Gordon's role in the forthcoming Justice League is only a brief introduction of the character. "Commissioner Gordon, my incarnation of Commissioner Gordon, in the first Justice League movie of what we hope will be a handful is a kind of don't blink or you'll miss it introduction of the character. I didn't spend all that much time. We shot it here in London, which was great, it's always fun to be here, but I still haven't seen the finished thing put together," stated Simmons.
'Justice League' is directed by Joss Whedon and features Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher and Henry Cavill in important roles. The film will release on November 17.
