You know J.K. Simmons up there, right? Hilarious and charming Oscar-winning actor. He's also the only person who should ever play J. Jonah Jameson in any Spider-Man movie and casting him in anything automatically makes that project better. That's a scientific fact and you should trust us because we are scientists.

If you saw Whiplash, you know that Simmons is actually pretty cut. He wore tight black t-shirts and flexed his arms in rage throughout the whole movie, so it was hard to miss his arm muscles. But even if you saw Whiplash, you will not be prepared for what Simmons looks like now.

Fitness pro Aaron Williamson uploaded a couple photos of the actor working out on his Instagram page and OH. MY. GOD. Look at the insane muscles Simmons is sporting now:

Look at those arms! Look at that beard! We're not sure if we're more impressed with the bulging biceps or his on-point facial hair game. 

Oh, and did we mention he was 61 years old? J.K. Simmons is 61 years old and could probably crush you with just a clap of his hands. And now we want to see him arm wrestle Chad from The Bachelorette because our money is on good ol' J.K.

We assume Simmons is getting buff for his upcoming role as Commissioner Gordon in the Justice League movie. By the look of those muscles, we assume Gordon is set to fight alongside Batman, Superman, etc.? Probably not, but if we were a superhero, we wouldn't mind having that jacked up dude next to us.

So next time you don't want to get to the gym, just remind yourself that if J.K. Simmons can get insanely pumped at 61, you can probably hit the elliptical for 30 minutes every once in a while.
