Being the Ricardos Director Always Wanted J.K. Simmons as William Frawley

March 12, 2022

One excellent example of spot-on casting would be J.K. Simmons in Being the Ricardos. While some of the film’s casting had been the subject of debate with fans prior to release, it was pretty clear to everyone as soon as the news was first announced that Simmons was perfect for Fred Mertz actor William Frawley. The actor has since proven that to be true by turning in an acclaimed performance that has him up for Best Supporting Actor at the Academy Awards. However, one person who wasn’t surprised to see Simmons take to the role so well was director Aaron Sorkin.
