Dr. Emil Skoda

"You may also recognize J.K. Simmons from his recurring role on Law & Order as Dr. Emil Skoda -- a character type that's been tragically underrepresented on primetime TV: namely, the sardonic, cynical criminal psychologist. Skoda is a refreshing change from the previous psychologist, Dr. Elizabeth Olivet, who was always complaining about something or other and getting herself tangled up in the psychosis of the criminals she interviewed. Skoda, on the other hand, is cool like lemonade, and sometimes seems like he might have ended up as a criminal psychopath himself, if he hadn't done so well on the MCAT."

J.K. Simmons
[born 1.9.55, Detroit, MI]
Jonathan Kimble Simmons was originally a singer, with a degree in music from the University of Montana. He turned to theater in the late 1970s and appeared in many regional productions in the Pacific Northwest before moving to New York in 1983. He appeared in Broadway and off-Broadway shows and also did some television -- his early roles included the portrayal of a white supremacist responsible for multiple murders in an episode of Homicide: Life on the Street, and a turn as Vern Schillinger, the leader of an Aryan Brotherhood-type organization in prison in the HBO series Oz. In feature films, he has had parts in the thriller The Jackal and For Love of the Game, and played a leading role in Frank Todaro's low-budget comedy Above Freezing, a runner-up for the most popular film at the 1998 Seattle Film Festival. In 1997, Simmons took on the role of Dr. Emil Skoda, the consulting psychiatrist to the Manhattan district attorney's office in the series Law & Order. It was during this period that Simmons would also nurture a feature career with roles in such films as The Jackal (1997) and The Cider House Rules (1999). In addition to keeping his vocal talents in tune with work on Disney's Anastasia, Simmons began to forge a continuing working relationship with blossoming Hollywood hot-property director Sam Raimi. Following roles in Raimi's For Love of the Game (1999) and The Gift the following year, Simmons brought cigar-chomping comic-book newspaperman J. Jonah Jameson screaming to life in an all-too-brief appearance in the Raimi's massive summer blockbuster Spider-Man in 2002. ~ Bruce Eder, All Movie Guide
