J.K. Simmons is going from "brutally ripped Santa Claus"

to just a regular ol' run-of-the-mill "mall Santa" for his next blockbuster film.

The Oscar-winning actor, known for his roles as

J. Jonah Jameson in the 'Spider-Man' franchise and Commissioner Gordon in 'Justice League',

is joining Dwayne Johnson in his upcoming Christmas action franchise,

which is headed to Prime Video next year.

Johnson announced J.K. Simmons' role as Santa Claus on Instagram, writing:

"AWESOME & SO MUCH FUN to officially start the production of our new Christmas franchise,

known as 'RED ONE'. And introducing the one and only, Santa Claus

played by the one and only Academy Award winner,

JK Simmons - who can also pass as my twin.
