This footage is poor quality, but quite frankly, I’m surprised it still even exists at all. J.K. Simmons originally studied acting at the University of Montana and in 1979, he performed in this Montana-based musical stage production called Life is a Low Budget Musical. At the end of this ultra-obscure handheld clip, the cast list pops up onscreen and you can see that he’s credited as “Kimble Simmons”. So, yes, here’s your rare chance to see J.K. Simmons with a full head of hair singing a musical number! Oh, and for more J.K. Simmons singing footage, be sure to check out the ultra-bizarre musical episode of Oz!
