J.K. Simmons Shares 'wonderful memories' of Luke Perry on "Oz"
Actor J.K. Simmons visits "The Talk" Wednesday and remembers Luke Perry with whom he worked on the drama "Oz." "Wonderful memories of that time and for people that don't know "Oz," it was the first drama on paid cable," recalls Simmons. "It was a real tough guy kind of environment, and when word got around that 'pretty boy 90210' was gonna come do a guest role arc on 'Oz,' there was a fair amount of eye-rolling from some people. But I'll tell you, when Luke showed up, first of all, such a solid guy, such a good actor, and such a team player, that he was immediately everyone's best friend that whole time, and knocked it out of the park... He's a great guy and obviously he's going to be missed, and my heart goes out to his family."
