J.K. Simmons & 'Counterpart' Cast Celebrate Season Two Premiere - Watch Trailer!

J. K. Simmons is dapper in a suit while hitting the carpet at the season two premiere of his hit show Counterpart held at the ArcLight Hollywood on Monday (December 3) in Los Angeles.

The 63-year-old actor was joined at the event by his co-stars Sara Serraiocco, Betty Gabriel, Harry Lloyd, Christiane Paul, Nazanin Boniadi, Olivia Williams, Laura and Sarah Bellini, Lawrence and Gregory Zarian, as well as creator Justin Marks and producer-director Jordan Horowitz.

Season two of Counterpart is about a mysterious world hidden beneath the surface of our everyday existence. Howard Silk (Simmons) is a lowly cog in the bureaucratic machinery of a Berlin-based United Nations spy agency. When Howard discovers that his organization safeguards the secret of a crossing into a parallel dimension, he is thrust into a shadow world of intrigue, danger, and double cross… where the only man he can trust is his near-identical counterpart from this parallel world. The show explores themes of identity, fate and lost love, posing the eternal question, “what if our lives could have been different?”

Counterpart returns Sunday, December 9 on STARZ – Watch the trailer below!

Hugh Jackman Gives Teary Speech at Santa Barbara Film Festival Honor - Watch Here!

Hugh Jackman happily hits the red carpet alongside his wife Deborra-lee Furness while attending the 2018 Santa Barbara International Film Festival at The Ritz-Carlton Bacara on Monday (November 19) in Goleta, Calif.

The 50-year-old actor was also joined by his Front Runner director Jason Reitman and co-star J.K. Simmons who helped honor him with the Kirk Douglas Award at the ceremony.

Hugh hit the stage and teared up while talking about his wife Deborra, saying she taught him that life is “not defined” by highlight reels, like the ones shown throughout the night’s tribute.

“Life actually happens in between that. Life happens when the camera is not going,” Hugh expressed (via Variety). “You believed in me when I couldn’t. You’ve loved me with a passion and a depth that I didn’t even know existed — and I don’t think I felt that I deserved. You have pushed and encouraged me when I was scared to venture out. You have smiled me into smiling. You have sung me into singing. You have loved me into loving and like everything I do in my life, I share this with you. I love you.”
