Oscar-winning actor J.K. Simmons is once again getting rave reviews for his latest performance, this one coming in Aaron Sorkin’s Being the Ricardos. In the film, which focuses on a week in the life of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz during the height of I Love Lucy’s popularity, Simmons plays William Frawley, who played Fred Mertz on the legendary sitcom. That, Simmons told us, proved to be a challenge, because there was very little information about Frawley to go on outside of his on-air persona. (Click on the media bar below to hear J.K. Simmons)
