JK Simmons Joins "Terminator: Genesis"

JK Simmons Joins "Terminator: Genesis"Submit Comment
"Spider-Man" actor JK Simmons is in talks to join the cast of "Terminator: Genesis," the upcoming reboot that stars Jason Clarke as John Connor, Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese and Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Terminator.

According to THR, Simmons will play a weary and alcoholic detective who has followed a bizarre case involving Sarah Connor and robots for more than three decades (since 1984, which is the year the original "Terminator" movie was released).

Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World) is directing "Terminator Genesis," which will begin shooting this spring. It's set to hit theaters on July 1st, 2015.

Damn good actor

Great actor, surprisingly versatile, but this is how stupid I feel Hollywood is. They cast Jason Clarke as the son of Emilia Clarke just because their last names are the same. LOL Just like I'm almost certain Marc Webb was picked for "The Amazing Spider-Man" just for his last name. That is how little of faith I have in any rebooted franchises.

He would've made a damn good Terminator once upon a time.

So this isn't a reboot?

@Sleuth

No, that's not true.

JK Simmons looks a lot like the actor that played the psychotherapist in the first 3 films. Maybe in this alternate timeline the character is a detective instead.

@Deaft0ne
Maybe if you had read my post you have noted I said he is incredibly versatile. I have complete faith in Simmons as an actor and playing a good character...but the franchise itself not so much. The last two Terminators weren't exactly masterpieces. T3 was good cult sci-fi fun and T4 had some moments but an awful story that could have at least had a trippy ending but that got ruined by stupid internet leaks of the script.

@Sleuth

I meant the Spider-Man/Mark Webb, Emilia/Jason Clarke thing is not true.

JK Simmons is a very good actor and my bet is that he is playing an alternate universe version of that psychotherapist character.

Dude looks like Dr Silberman, who was a police psychologist in the first film and an institutional psychiatrist in the second.

What he was in the third film I do not know nor do I care.

In any case, the details revealed here add interest to what was, up until recently, a terrible plot and an even worse concept.
