J.K. Simmons Says Those Gordon Muscles Aren't… by filmjunkee
J.K Simmons spoke to Business Insider recently and they asked him about the viral image of him with those bulging arms. The internet blew up with everyone excited to see him beefing up to play Commissioner Gordon for Justice League, but turns out he wasn’t. That’s just for him.
This is all coincidental. After the second and final time that I got hugely fat in my life and when I lost that weight six or seven years ago, I pretty much decided that I was going to stay in decent shape for the rest of my life.
I was not in good shape at all. I was overweight and soft and here I am playing the head of the Aryan Brotherhood in this maximum-security prison in the first-ever HBO original drama and I was watching the first season when it came out and I just thought, ‘Wow, I don’t believe this guy at all. I have to get my ass to the gym and be a believable hard-ass.’
