One of the many faces joining the “Terminator” franchise for next year’s Terminator Genisys is none other than genre favorite J.K. Simmons. ComingSoon.net spoke with Simmons yesterday and managed to squeeze in a few questions about the upcoming film, which allowed him to open up about it a little.
“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.”
