Oscar winner J.K. Simmons talks about his memorable roles, from ‘Juno’ to ‘Whiplash’

“Aside from the obvious that the director is my lovely spouse, it was great to work on. I was around, of course, as she and [co-writer] Tony Cummings were writing, which they do on the phone, and, as has been the case when I’ve worked with her in the past, I prefer not to be part of that process until they’re very far along. Once I saw the first draft I was very drawn in to the character of Steve and all three of the periods of his life we see. It’s actually easier to work [with my wife] because of the relationship. There are always challenges in collaborating on a film, but there’s an intrinsic level of faith and trust and love. That really simplifies the process.”
