  1. i like mr. simmons and his work . i would like to contact him as a fan and someday meet him . we are the same age and same backround. i was born in flint michigan in 1955 and later grew up in ohio and am an OSU fan.

  2. I watched the movie on Prime video last nite (2/27/2023) with J.K. Simmons called, “The Bachelors”
    Must have been an older movie he played in. Was a very good movie and presented well. Was sad at the end where he thought he was going to die and really missed his “movie” wife after she had died before the movie came on. Very well played by all characters.
