How Josh Brolin got ripped to play Cable in Deadpool 2
Josh Brolin has acted in mainstream movies since he was a child, but like a lot of actors who got their start and achieved their first breakthrough at a young age, he's weathered his fair share of career ups and downs as an adult—and it's really only over the last 15 years or so that he's truly broken through to the mainstream and achieved a larger presence as a grown-up Hollywood star. And we're not talking screen presence—we're talking physical, actual, holy-cow-that-guy-is-huge presence. So how did Brolin develop from the slimmed-downed frame he had as a young man in The Goonies to the bulked-up muscle grandpa look he's sporting for his portrayal of Marvel Comics' Cable in Deadpool 2? As you might imagine, it's a little more complicated than concentration curls and boiled chicken. Whether you want to look like a real-life Cable or are just looking for some extra inspiration between reps, read on to see exactly how Brolin got so jacked.
