J. Jonah Jameson Casting for Reboot!

That is link to article, AP or one of the other mods if you can quote the story that would be great. Darn site link isnt loading correctly for me.

If they thought finding Andrew Garfield for the Spider-Man redo was a bitch, I'd imagine finding a new J. Jonah Jameson, in the eyes of many fans, will be an almost-impossible task to pull off. J.K. Simmons' portrayal was one of those rare cases where a character stepped out of the comic-book panels and came to life. But it has to be done especially with the December start of filming looming.

Among the reported dozen or so actors in contention as the cigar-eating, Daily Bugle editor (via WHAT'S PLAYING) are Mad Men star John Slattery, who in a "Six Degrees of Stan Lee" connection, just played Tony Stark's deceased 70s era papa in Iron Man 2. Also name-dropped is Sam Elliott, who trumps Slattery in the bad Marvel movies department having appeared in Ang Lee's Hulk misfire and Ghost Rider.

Having an easier time imagining Elliott (A friend of mine thinks of him as the sexiest thing on two legs – curious to see her reaction were he to be cast) than Slattery. Although truthfully neither fully gel in my mind as Jonah. I'd be shocked as all Hell if it happened, but Hugh Laurie gets my vote and my buddy/MOVIE MOAN partner-in-crime Phil wants James Woods, also a strong choice.

Then again, they could always throw caution to the wind and just rehire Simmons.
