9. Edward Norton
In addition to his amazing performance opposite Brad Pitt in Fight Club, he also played one of cinema’s most realistic Nazi skinhead scumbags in the movie American History X.
To get ready for that role, Ed had to gain 30 pounds of muscle in just 3 months.
To pack on all of that meat, followed a standard bodybuilding bulking diet of multiple meals, high protein and supplementary shakes and supplements combined with a boatload of big compound lifts like squats & presses performed with very little rest between sets.
In essence, he was creating the type of training regimen that he believed his character would gravitate to… “I knew this guy was going to have to be really physically fearsome and defined by rage…arming himself against his own emotional pain, and this body he’s created is the physical manifestation of that.”
Note – If I was a betting man, I would put my money on American Hixtory X Edward Norton beating the crap out of Fight Club Brad Pitt
