J.K. Simmons Talks Terminator Gynisis

October 3rd, 2014 by Todd Black Comments

Whether you know him from his talents on the big screen, or his voice via the small screen, J.K. Simmons is a well-respected actor.

And now, he’s finished filming a movie called…Terminator Genisys.

Coming Soon got to talk with him and he revealed what he could about the film.

“‘Pretty big?'” he responded before offering a few thoughts on  the project.  “It’s a gigantic movie and that was such a surprise when they sent that to me  and asked me to do it. I thought ‘Well, obviously it’s a gigantic movie and on  that level, it’s something most actors would want to be a part of, but is it  just going to be the formulaic yadda-yadda-yadda then cut to the stuff blowing  up?’ But I found the script to be really much more intelligent and fun and funny  and well-rounded and heart-felt. It’s a love story. It’s a really interesting  script. They got great actors. I wrapped that in August, so that was another  movie that ended up being really satisfying on all levels. I have a much smaller  part in that but it was really a fun thing to be a part of.”

But does he get to work with Arnold himself? Well…

“Yeah, most of my stuff was with Jai Courtney and Emilia Clarke and Arnold was  very involved or rather I was involved in a fair amount of stuff with Arnold. I  spent very little time actually with Jason Clarke, but yeah I got to work with  all four of the leads of the film and from the table read on, I was just  favorably impressed by everybody’s work. Also everybody’s attitude and what they  brought to work with them every day and how there was no BS and diva tantrums.  It was a good experience overall.”
