Filming fraud - Actor Simmons narrates documentary on Montana investor scams

September 18, 2007View for printing

Montana State Auditor John Morrison John Morrison and J.K. Simmons http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J._K._Simmons haven't played dramatic roles together since they were both in “Oliver” in Missoula in 1977, but they found themselves on the same side of the camera Monday as they filmed a documentary designed to cut back on investor fraud.

Morrison, of course, is the state auditor, and Simmons is Missoula's most famous actor, mainly for his television roles as Dr. Emil Skoda on “Law and Order” and Vernon Schillinger on the prison drama “Oz.”

On Monday, however, Simmons played the role of narrator in a documentary called “Fraud Under the Big Sky.” It likely won't earn him an Emmy, but it's important nonetheless, said Morrison. and J.K.
