I really like his performance in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man Trilogy. Too good for a small character (in the series) to be honest. But I fell in love with him in Whiplash. He can make a very simple drama to be the most frightening and twisted roller coaster. For me, Terence Fletcher (the character he played in Whiplash) is one of the best super villains, like Dr. Lecter (Anthony Hopkins) and The Joker (Heath Ledger). Happy For you Mr. J.K. Simmons.
