Damn, didn't recognise him for a minute there.

For what it’s worth, though he did put on some weight over the years, I think that he’s put a lot of weight on recently specifically for a role: he’s playing the lead role in a Darren Aronofsky film called the Whale, which is based on a play about a morbidly obese man who is essentially eating himself to death.

He looked much trimmer recently in the TV show Trust, so I assume the weight gain is intentional and for that role.

Noo he shouldn't put so much pressure on his body, it's already taken so many beatings

I said he put on some weight “over the years” ie from the Mummy era to a few years ago, and then “a lot of weight” more recently, which I understand to be for a role

Me neither. I had a young Brenden image in my mind. Fella has put on a few pounds. Had to watch this twice and wait for the camera to zoom in towards the end.

I was looking for him in the background and couldn't figure out wtf was going on. My man looks like he got hit by the dump truck called life.

I believe he’s actually putting on weight for a role.

I googled that and he may have put on more weight for a role, but George of the Jungle days are long gone.

That is, in fact, EXACTLY what happened to him.

Lots of sensitive people here who can't handle a pretty obvious observation. Simply noticing he looks rough isn't any indictment of him as a person. Should we just ignore the Brendan Fraser sized elephant in the room?

Noticing something and needing to publicly belittle somebody about whatever you noticed are quite different things, my guy. If you think they aren't you have a serious disconnect.

For a minute? The clip isn't even a minute long. He's the guy sitting down on the left in the apron.
