After Getting Jacked For The Tomorrow War, J.K. Simmons Says The Best Compliment Came From ‘Arnold’s Daughter’ Katherine Schwarzenegger

There are more than a few reasons to be impressed by The Tomorrow War. If you like movies where guys fire machine guns and a nearly constant pace, it has that. If you like creative alien creature designs, the look of the white spikes is pretty cool. If you're a fan of Chris Pratt, then you kinda need to see it. But even if you don't care about any of those things, you might want to watch The Tomorrow War anyway, just to get a look at J.K. Simmons' arms. They're so amazing even the Schwarzenegger family is impressed.

J.K. Simmons plays the father of Chris Pratt's character in The Tomorrow War. He's a Vietnam vet who has become estranged from his son since coming home. It's unclear exactly what he's been doing in the years since, but he's certainly kept himself in fighting shape because Simmons looks absolutely amazing. He looks like he could fight one of the vicious alien creatures with his bare hands. And the actor received some amazing compliments on his physique from somebody who would know. According to USA Today, Chris Pratt relayed his wife's thoughts to the actor, which were "Oh, my God, J.K. Simmons is jacked." Simmons response was...

That's all I need from Arnold's daughter.

Katherine Schwarzenegger, being Arnold's daughter, would certainly know jacked when she sees it. Her father was able to built an incredible professional life that started with him as a professional bodybuilder. He transitioned that into a career as one of the biggest action movie stars of the 80s and 90s. If Arnold's daughter is impressed, then J.K. Simmons has every reason to be feeling good.

It's always impressive to see what actors can accomplish when they put the time and the work in for a role. While it might make some of us feel like we really need to go the gym more often, it's also somewhat inspiring as it shows that it really can be done. If you put the work in and stick with it you can absolutely transform yourself. J.K. Simmons has never really been obviously out of shape, but when he looks like this he looks like a whole different person.

We'll have to wait and see if J.K. Simmons decides to keep this particular build going forward. While it's likely a lot of work, it sounds like Simmons appreciates the compliments he gets from it. None of his upcoming roles would necessarily require him to be this bulked up, but at the same time none of them would necessarily require him to lose the muscles either. If you haven't seen J.K. Simmons go full action hero, The Tomorrow War will always be there on Amazon Prime Video so fans can experience, or reexperience, a super jacked J.K. Simmons.
