Jonathan Majors Goes ‘Beast Mode’ With His Workouts (And It Shows)! – BlackDoctor.org
Actor Jonathan Majors is definitely a star to watch. Since making serious waves on screen for his roles in movies like Spike Lee’s Da Five Bloods and in HBO’s Lovecraft Country and Netflix’s The Harder They Fall, he’s received praise and accolades. Another thing he’s done since those breakthrough performances is seriously toned his body. He’s preparing for high-profile roles including Kang, the next big villan in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (he made a cameo in the role last year in Loki and will be in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania). Quantumania director Peyton Reed compared Majors to “a young Marlon Brando,” bringing an “energy and…presence” that raises the movie to new levels of excellence.
He’ll also play the new adversary to Adonis Creed in Creed III, and he will also play a bodybuilder in the drama Magazine Dreams.
Majors told Men’s Health that he gained ten extra pounds for Creed, five more for Kang, and six more for Magazine Dreams, for a grand total of 21 pounds all while getting keeping his body fat percentage below 10 percent. “When you see these guys, it’s like, Yeah, they’re f**king fit,” Majors told Men’s Health. “But if you look at it, there’s a story there.”
