The STARZ original comedy Survivor’s Remorse follows the meteoric rise of Cam Calloway—hard-working, young basketball star. Cam’s portrayer, Jessie T. Usher, is enjoying a similarly stratospheric career. (In addition to the second season of Survivor’s Remorse, premiering August 22, Jessie is starring in next summer’s highly anticipated Independence Day: Resurgence.) Jessie stops by the MEN’S FITNESS studio and chats with digital director Mike Simone about life imitating art, gaining 22 pounds of muscle in 7 weeks, an Independence Day preview, and more.
