Justice League: J.K. Simmons Is Looking Ripped And Ready


Actor J.K. Simmons shows off an impressive physique for the role of Commissioner James Gordon in the upcoming Justice League.

Throughout the years, we’ve seen the live-incarnation of Commissioner James Gordon take on many forms: the tall, lean professional played by Neil Hamilton in the 1960s Batman; the stout and heavy-set Pat Hingle in Tim Burton’s Batman (1989), the wiry and middle-aged Gary Oldman in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy; and the young rough-and-tumble detective on Fox’s Gotham.

Now, prepare for a retired Gordon who’s ripped to shreds. When I mean “ripped,” I’m talking vascular, lean, sinewy, beast-ness (if that’s even a word)! Via Instagram, celebrity fitness trainer Aaron Williamson shared a picture of actor J.K. Simmons hitting the weights in preparation for his role as the legendary crime-fighter for the upcoming Justice League.

At the age of 61, Simmons is probably more in shape than men a third of his age. The definition in his biceps and triceps are amazing. And that smile he’s cracking makes it even more impressive—because he’s enjoying it.

It shouldn’t a surprise that Simmons is pushing his body to the limits in a Zack Snyder film, as the director likes to have his actors don impressive physiques in all his films. If this is James Gordon retired, I’d be scared to see the good Commissioner in his prime!
