Frank Grillo tweets his Workouts to prepare for CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER
Frank Grillo is playing Crossbones in the sequel to the superhit Marvel film, CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER, and is currently training hard to get in shape for the character
Grillo follows in the footsteps of Jeff Bridges, Mickey Rourke, Ben Kingsley, Tom Hiddleston, Christopher Eccleston, Tim Roth and Hugo Weaving to play the bad guy in a Marvel Film. Its a great group of actors to join and this role is Grillo's highest profile role to date.
Grillo is understandably stepping up to the plate for a role that is likely to make him a star. To portray Crossbones, the actor has been training rigorously for the past two months, since his casting was confirmed. Grillo is 47 years old and a father of two but has kept in great shape over the years. He will be putting on 20 pounds of muscle for the role and gives a taste of some of the workouts he is doing through his twitter feed. Check them out below.
Above is a picture of Grillo showing his progress.
CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER is scheduled to release on 4th April 2014. Filming begins early next year.
