J.K. Simmons

I don't know whether any fans of "Oz" will read this, but if you do, and you want to see J.K. Simmons channeling Vern Schillinger instead of playing nice (Dr. Skoda on "Law and Order", the Farmers Insurance commercials), then go see "Whiplash" if it's playing in your city, or add it to your Netflix queue. Simmons plays a music instructor called Terence Fletcher in a performance that I think is worthy of an Oscar nod (as is the performance of his student, played by Miles Teller). Oh, and the jazz that you'll hear in the film isn't half-bad, either.
