Two J.K. Simmons is better than one right?
In Starz’s new series ‘Counterpart’ we are going to find out. A UN employee named Howard (J.K. Simmons) goes to his job every day but doesn’t really know what he does. One day he goes to walk in and he’s denied entry. As it turns out UN is hiding a portal to a parallel universe, himself. He comes from a world identical to ours that split and things turned out very differently. Howard takes this time to hang out with his other to find out why things turned out the way that they did.
Howard 2 didn’t come here for pleasantries. An assassin Baldwin (Sara Serraiocco) has come over as well, and Howard 1’s wife is a target. A lot has to be done to save his wife and maybe change the other world for the better.
The series seems like an interesting fun take on sci-fi, and J.K. Simmons is always phenomenal so I look forward to what this series could bring.
‘Counterpart’ begins January 21, 2018 at 8PM E/P on STARZ
