J.K. Simmons says he's actually very nice, and it's just his Whiplash character who is not.

The actor has already won a Golden Globe, Critics' Choice Movie Award and a SAG award for playing the supporting role of the mean, band conductor, Fletcher, who yells at his students as a form of getting his students to reach their potential. So when he came on Saturday Night Live to host, he had to address his character's flaws before he really got into the role once more.

The Oscar nominee then tried to do a song with the SNL cast, but he yelled at everyone like his character would have.

With comments like, "Not my tempo," "You're rushing," and "You know what's not cute? Sucking at the drums!"-- it's no wonder that Blake Shelton, the host from last week, is missed!

SNL cast member Leslie Jones can handle him though as she says, "Do not scream at me, J.K! I am a 47-year-old woman! Do no do that! You need to pump your brakes, dude!"

And we finally do see him happy when he says that Fred Armisen's drumming is going to be "terrible," but it ends up being a great performance at the end!
