J.K. Simmons has a new career goal in mind and it has to do with every Chris in Hollywood.

Talking on People‘s Couch Surfing, Simmons said, “My career plan now is to play the father of every handsome, blue-eyed movie star stud named Chris. So I checked off my Chris Evans box, and I just finished a film [The Tomorrow War] with Chris Pratt where I play his father, so that’s number two.”

Simmons played Evans’ father in the Apple TV+ series, Defending Jacob.

He added with a plea to casting directors, “So if you’re casting out there I’m looking — Chris Pine, I’m available, and Chris Hemsworth — in either order, I mean we don’t have to go alphabetical.”

Maybe, to go all the way, he should play the father to all four of them in a weird movie where the various Chrises are brothers. You know you want it.
