JK Simmons on Terminator sequels: “I’ll be back!”

July 4th, 2015 by Dave Bowling Comments


It’s kinda agreed that one of the highlights of Terminator Genisys was JK Simmons’s turn as scattered LAPD detective O’Brien.

While there’s never any excuse needed for more Simmons, it’s a great thing to hear that the character has been confirmed for two more movies. Based on his brief appearance, it seems that O’Brien could become a dependable ally for the little band of heroes in the future.

Simmons was speaking about the role and has confirmed his story is still ongoing: “There are a lot of ways we could go with O’Brien, and we’ve actually have had those discussions already, so I do know where it goes — but that’s part of the fun of the character, he’s the only guy in 2017, in the regular world, that has a clue what’s going on. Nobody believes him, but he does sorta know what’s up, or is beginning to figure out what the whole story is here. So I think if we make the sequels as they continue, I think O’Brien’s credibility level will develop.”

So, allies in the ongoing fight against Skynet? Cool. Question is, can they get Dr Silberman on board…?
