J.K. Simmons will be playing Commissioner Gordon in the upcoming Justice League movie and it’s the same role that Ben plays on Gotham right now. The actor doesn’t plan on taking notes from the other actors who have played the role though.

“Obviously, a lot of really wonderful actors have played that character previously, and most of them I saw at the time the movies came out, never imagining that I would be doing the same thing,” J.K. told Collider. “So, I can’t say that I don’t have some impression of that character in my head that’s based on what I saw, but I’m not planning on going back and watching any of the other films.”
