J.K. Simmons Already Signed for Spider-Man 3

J.K. Simmons, who reprises his role as J. Jonah Jameson in the upcoming Spider-Man 2, told SCI FI Wire that he's already on board for Spider-Man 3. "I am absolutely signed up and ready, willing and able and excited about doing Spider-Man 3,"...
Simmons said in an interview, "I think the original plan was to do them every other year, but then [Spider-Man 2] ended up getting a little bit delayed, so we're doing a late June release instead of May. They like that Memorial Day slot, so I think that's the reason for doing a [May 4] 2007 release."

Simmons joked that he'd be happy to play the blustery Jameson every other year for the rest of his life. So far as developing the character, the actor explained that he actually didn't want to know too much more about Jameson. "You have to stay within the confines of what the character's relationships are," Simmons said. "Certainly, the comic books took him to some interesting places over the years. I don't see Triple-J ever being the focus of a Spider-Man movie. I'm not campaigning for that. I don't think that's the function the character serves. Having said that, it's always fun to have a little more to do and a little more screen time and to get to interact with more characters. But in this world I'm very happy to be one of the guys in the background helping to keep the thing afloat." Spider-Man 2 opens June 30.
