Resurfaced Spider-Man Test Footage Shows J.K. Simmons Was Always Perfect For J. Jonah Jameson

In addition to playing J. Jonah Jameson in Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man 3, J.K. Simmons also vocally reprised the character in various animated series, like Ultimate Spider-Man and Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. As far as the cinematic realm goes, Jameson was absent from the Amazing Spider-Man film series, with his presence only being felt in an email he sent to Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Then in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, after sitting out Spider-Man: Homecoming, Jameson finally made his grand big screen return in Spider-Man: Far From Home’s mid-credits scene. Rather than hire a new actor, director Jon Watts wisely brought back Simmons to play the MCU version of the character, who’s bald rather than boasts the flattop hairdo.
