J.K. Simmons meets his double in trailer for sci-fi series Counterpoint

One J.K. Simmons is already pretty amazing, but two? It doesn't get much better than that, unless...there were three? Nah, that would definitely be too much of a good thing. Starz's upcoming sci-fi series Counterpoint stars J.K. Simmons as Howard Silk, a lowly cog in a bureaucratic UN agency who is turning the last corner of a life filled with regret. Despite working for the agency for three decades, Silk doesn't have a clue what his employer does, until the day he's introduced to his near-identical double and discovers that the agency has been guarding a secret crossing to a parallel dimension. Thrust into a shadow world of intrigue, danger, and double cross, the only man Silk can trust is his counterpart.

I've been looking forward to this series since it was first announced, and I'm delighted to see that the trailer paints an extremely promising picture, plus, getting to see J.K. Simmons unleash his bad-ass side is always something special. Counterpoint also stars Olivia Williams, Harry Lloyd, Nicholas Pinnock, Nazanin Boniadi, Sara Serraiocco, and Ulrich Thomsen, and, Starz has ordered two ten-episode seasons of the series, which will debut on Starz on January 21, 2018.
