Jack Shephard, is that you?
Former Lost star Matthew Fox appears to have undergone a seriously crazy transformation for the role of serial killer Picasso in Alex Cross, a movie based on James Patterson’s I, Alex Cross. In recently released stills from the movie, the formerly foxy Fox is ripped beyond belief — and he actually looks psychotic.
His creepy, scary-skinny appearance is reminiscent of Christian Bale’s skeletal body in The Machinist. For that 2004 psychological thriller, Bale dropped 63 pounds from his 6-foot frame via extreme diet and exercise tactics.
Fox’s new movie is set to hit theaters October 26, and hopefully he’ll be able to stay out of trouble in the intervening months. The actor was recently slapped with a DUI after getting pulled over in his home state of Oregon while driving to a fast-food restaurant in the wee hours of the morning on May 4.
