JK Simmons On Why He Has Gotten So Jacked For Justice League

A month or so ago JK Simmons' personal trainer shared photos of him in the gym pushing the metal, gaining the muscle, and becoming jacked like Ben Affleck if not more. Many rightly assumed it was for his role for Justice League which is Gotham's Commissioner Gordon, but were amazed at how buff he had gotten for it.

Recently however JK talked to Business Insider and explained why he looks more like Superman's fun uncle and not like the average Joe like Gordon. "This is all coincidental," Simmons explained, while doing press for the Blu-ray release of "Kung Fu Panda 3," in which he voices the villain, Kai. "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."

The photos were actually taken at the end of April. He has since shaved the beard, which was for his role in the movie his wife wrote and directed, "I'm Not Here," before "Justice League."

Simmons said that his Jim Gordon will look very much like the other versions of the character we've seen.

"I'm not going to mess with something that iconic," he said.

Simmons chuckles about the attention the pictures got.

"Those were shot at the end of April. I'm huge now!" Simmons joked.

Recently during the set visits for Justice League it was said that JK's Gordon will be more like the animated version above. So don't expect a hulking mass version of Comissioner Gordon.

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy.  Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat.  But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Directed by Zack Snyder, this marks the big screen debut of the Justice League, featuring an all-star lineup: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher. With JK Simmons as Comissioner Gordon, Amber Heard as Mera, and Willem Dafoe as Vulko.
