Actor J.K. Simmons has given us many amazing roles on the big screen, but we never would have thought that Master Roshi could be one of his best characters, as suggested by some incredible Dragon Ball fan art.
JK Simmons is without a doubt one of the best actors in Hollywood. Let’s remember that in 2015 he won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for Demin Chazelle’s Possession, though perhaps his most iconic role, or at least the most memorable for the geek community, is J. John Jameson. in the first Spider trilogy. Man and also Tom Holland. However, now the actor is about to give life to the greatest character of his career thanks to this fan art that introduces him as Master Roshi himself.
As you can see, this fun digital art beautifully depicts the actor dressed as Sensei Goku, although he’s perhaps a little “tighter” and more “cool” in that iconic outfit worn by Dragon Ball Super.
And if you’re wondering why the hell Instagram artist @samukarts featured J.K. Simmons as Master Roshi, you should know that, on the one hand, this guy was creating something like his “perfect cast” for live action” Dragon Ball.” through various fan arts that have featured, for example, Leonardi DiCaprio as Future Trunks, Hugh Jackman as Piccolo or John Cena as Reakum, so it seems that this actor now fits as one of the most important characters in Akira Toriyama’s work.
On the other hand, the idea comes from a series of photographs showing J.K. Simmons training intensely alongside Dwayne Johnson for the 2023 action film Red, in which he shares credit with both The Rock and Chris. Evans.
