J.K. Simmons Talks His “Justice League” Filming

Now that he’s done with his work, beloved actor J.K. Simmons has shed some light on what it was like to film his role of Commissioner Gordon with director Zack Snyder on the upcoming “Justice League” movie.

While many debate the merits of Snyder’s DC films to date, Simmons is mostly just enjoying himself in the role. Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, he confirms most of his scenes are with Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight:

“Yeah, mostly with Ben. In this first installment of the Justice League, Commissioner Gordon is not a particularly sizable part. We just kind of introduce him and see a little bit of his interactions with Batman — and with most of the Justice League.

That was a really fun set. Zack [Snyder] runs sort of a big, happy family and it’s obviously, in many ways, a very different work environment when you’re working on a big, giant movie like that than a relatively small movie like The Meddler.

But at the end of the day, the director is the one who sets the tone. And one of the things that Zack and Lorene have in common is they’re just nice, smart, competent, fun people that you don’t mind spending a 12-hour day with. My part is done. They are filming that for basically most of 2016, so some of the superheroes are still at work in jolly old London, but I’m back home with my family.”

“Justice League” is currently slated for a November 2017 release.
