Describe J.K. Simmons h-
WHAT IS THIS, EHARMONY? I DON'T NEED A DESCRIPTION, I NEED PHOTOS! HERE'S WHAT YOU CAN GIVE ME A DESCRIPTION OF: SPIDER-MAN! IN PHOTO FORM! OUT!

Jonathan Kimble "J. K." Simmons (born January 9, 1955) is an American actor and voice actor. Though active since 1986, his current rise to fame began in 1994 with his 53 appearances as consulting psychiatrist Dr. Emil Skoda across the Law & Order franchise. Since 2001, he has become memetic for certain acting roles, especially as J. Jonah Jameson across Spider-Man media (most notably in the Sam Raimi film trilogy), as possibly insane business tycoon Cave Johnson in Portal 2 and as the sadistic music teacher Terence Fletcher in his Academy Award-winning role in Whiplash. He played the role of Tenzin in The Legend of Korra. Oh, and he's also the voice of Yellow in the M&M's commercials as well as Professor Nathaniel Burke of the University of Farmers in commercials for Farmers Insurance Group.

Tropes describing J. K. Simmons' roles

  • Badass Baritone: He has a very deep, instantly recognizable voice.
  • Badass Grandpa: For a 61 year old, he is absolutely physically ripped in this workout pic and this still from Whiplash. After they leaked, he dispelled rumors that he was getting into shape to play Commissioner Gordon, and mentioned he just keeps that fit all the time after having lost a good deal of weight.
  • Badass Mustache: Several of his roles feature one of these, most notably J. Jonah Jameson.
  • Ink-Suit Actor:
    • To the point that many Spider-Man fans are not sure if he is J. K. Simmons, or if he is, in fact, J. Jonah Jameson.
    • While his younger and older selves look much more different, the middle-aged Cave Johnson is basically him with hair and side burns (and possibly a mustache if you find the hidden portrait).

These lemons are not quite my tempo. Cave Johnson, we're done here.
