THE LAKE: J.K. Simmons Joins Luc Besson's Navy SEAL Treasure Film
Deadline is reporting that J.K. Simmons (Whiplash) has joined the cast of Luc Besson's Navy SEALs action thriller The Lake. It will not be a large role for the recent Oscar winner but no one is probably better suited to play a Rear Admiral than he right now. 

Joining the cast of leads with recent addition Sullivan Stapleton on the ground in war-torn Siberia will be Charlie Bewley (Twilight) and Diarmaid Murtaugh (Sons of Liberty). 

Simmons has a smaller role as the Rear Admiral and leathery boss to the SEALs who doesn't exactly approve of what his team is doing but supports them nevertheless... Bewley is playing the soulful Stanton who has a love interest (yet to be cast) and daydreams about what life would be like outside of the military while Murtagh is playing Duffy, the more introspective SEAL who is a bit more mysterious.

Production begins next month.
