Academy Award Winner J.K Simmons (“Whiplash”) is reuniting with director Damien Chazelle for Lionsgate music “La La Land”, says Variety.
The film stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone as a jazz pianist and aspiring actress, respectively, who fall in love but face difficulties as they become more successful.
Chazelle wrote the script.
Simmons, currently in “Terminator : Genisys”, plays a character called ‘The Boss’. No relation to Springsteen.
