J. K. Simmons adds star powr to every film or television project he touches, so why not add him to the already highly-anticipated box office hit? This seems like a slam dunk in the casting department, so it should come as no surprise that the Hollywood Reporter (not to mention all of comic book fandom and internet land) were eager to jump on this news piece. That’s right. The hardest working man in show business has been reportedly cast as Commissioner Jim Gordon in Justice League, and, presumably, for the solo Batman film(s) to follow. Happy Monday, everyone. Hope your day is a little bit better now.
