Academy Award-nominated actor Jake Gyllenhaal is set to star in a drama about a boxer who loses everything. The trailer for the upcoming summer blockbuster Southpaw was released last week.
In it, the 34-year-old Gyllenhaal plays Billy Hope, a beaten and broken down boxer who loses his wife to a stray bullet and his daughter to protective custody. Our only question: How did he get so ripped? (You can fool yourself shredded in 24-hours with these tips.)
Southpaw will hit theatres on July 31 and is directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day), and written by Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter. Rapper Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and Rachel McAdams will also star in the film alongside Gyllenhaal.
