Cape Town – Jake Gyllenhaal is proving to be quite the shape shifter.

After losing 10kg to play a creeper journo in Nightcrawler he has transformed again for his new role.

For his latest role Jake packed on 6kg of pure muscle to play middleweight boxing champion Billy “The Great” Hope in Southpaw.

In the boxing drama directed by Antoine Fuqua, Jake plays a boxer who tries to get his daughter and his life back on track after facing a horrible tragedy.

The film also stars Forest Whitaker, 50 Cent and Rachel McAdams.

In the trailer Jake is bruised and battered and in fighting form.
