Yeah, I saw him on TV about a week ago. He was on Entertainment Tonight, I think (or one of those Hollywood shows that comes on right around 7). I couldn’t believe it was him.
They asked him how he did it and I can’t remember all of the details. The only thing I remember in particular was that he said he gave up red meat. That one caught me off-guard.
Well that just sucks. I haven’t seen him recently, but I really don’t think Hollywood needs any more ‘average’ looking guys.
My favorite thing about Duncan was that his size was unique and rare.
I hope his weight loss was for health reasons, and not for the ability to fit into more roles.[/quote]
He dropped weight for The Island initially. He still had some size on him (obviously bigger than everyone else), but he was down to about 260lbs for that one (from a high of over 340lbs for DareDevil which was the heaviest he had been in a movie role).
I haven’t seen him since that movie so I have no idea if he’s lost even more. I hope he isn’t going that route either. The Rock has shrunk to the point that he looks like everyone else lately. It sure hasn’t related directly with ‘better movies’.
