Jamie Foxx bulked up to the delight of his female (and some male) fans. The comedic actor has wowed fans with his pumped-up physique as he transforms himself into the Black hulk to portray boxer Mike Tyson in a new movie.

Jamie perfected Tyson's famous lisp as part of his stand-up routine years ago and now he's bulking up to look like Mike for the upcoming biopic Finding Mike.

Posting a shirtless photo of himself on Instagram on Friday, the 52-year-old Oscar winner added the caption: "The transformation begins... FINDING MIKE."

"It is no secret that I have been pursuing the @miketyson biopic for some time... people always ask me when is it going to happen...? things have finally lined up... A few months ago we started the journey... The first but biggest task is to transform the body... with a regiment [sic] of pull-ups dips and push-ups we are off to a pretty good start... we have a ways to go but God willing."

Jamie's fans complained about the poor quality of the images on his Instagram. One user asked if his phone was a throwback from the early 2000s.

It's going to be difficult for Jamie to bulk up at his age. Muscles naturally begin to go limp after age 45 when male hormone levels start to decline.

Sure, he can take steroids or supplements to boost his male androgens (hormones), but his huge muscles will still be soft rather than the hard, chiseled look that the ladies (and men) like.
