The Talks: Mr. Simmons, do you think your appearance influences the kind of roles you’re given?

J.K. Simmons: Sure, sometimes the casting decision is as simple as, “I am who I am, I look like this, I have a low voice, and I look like somebody’s dad or somebody’s boss or the police chief.” Those are just the roles that often have happened to come my way.
