The All Nighter – Trailer 

The All Nighter looks pretty amusing.  The role J.K. Simmons plays–a concerned father who’s daughter has gone missing-vaguely reminds me of Liam Neeson’s character in the Taken movies, but geared toward comedy.

Speaking of Simmons he’s perhaps one of the more versatile character actors working today, with an enviable ability to elevate whatever he happens to be starring in (a quality that used to be shared by Robert DeNiro, till a lack of discrimination in choosing parts killed it). 

You may not have like Vern Slesinger from O.Z.–truth be told, nor were you supposed to–but portrayal of a Neo-Nazi stayed with you.  

Or his portrayal as a UFO abductee from Dark Skies, a performance that resonated with a quiet intensity that elevated the material.
