You might know J.K. Simmons as "that guy."
That guy who played the dad in Juno, that guy who won the Academy Award in Whiplash, that guy from the Spiderman movies. Basically, he's a character actor who's been in a lot of stuff.
You may have also heard him referred to as "that bald guy," but likely never "that insanely ripped sexagenarian."
Yep, the pic above is J.K. Simmons, not Santa Claus on steroids.
And yes, the long white beard is new, too, but it's the muscles that are making jaws drop.
Simmons is training with fitness pro Aaron Williamson, who has been sharing pics of the transformed actor to Instagram.
"Every time we train together I forget he's 61 years old," Williamson wrote. "So much respect for this guy. #JKSimmons #OldManCranking"
Here's another photo he shared:
"Saturday morning, 61 years old & making the young generation jealous," the trainer captioned the pic.
"This is what dedication looks like. #JKSimmons," he added.
Dedication, indeed. *Puts down brownie*
The always-working actor is possibly getting buff in preparation for his upcoming role in Justice League, in which he plays Commissioner Gordon.
Looks like Zac Efron and his muscles may have some competition.
