It was recently confirmed that CBS military drama series SEAL Team has been renewed for a fifth season, and one of its leading actors just shared a throwback photo on Instagram illustrating just how much has changed in the last four years.
Max Thieriot posted a “before and after” picture which shows the weight loss and muscle transformation he has undergone since getting the role. Thieriot, who starred in the Point Break reboot and Bates Motel prior to getting the role of Clay Spenser on SEAL Team, revealed that one Men’s Health cover star in particular inspired him on his fitness journey.
“Pre SEAL Team vs. headed into season 5… the work doesn’t stop when you leave set,” he wrote. “I have pushed myself mentally and physically for this TV show. I’ve literally bled for it, more than once. Many things in life are beyond your control… physically being in shape is not! Took me five years to get where I am… @ryanphillippe on the cover of @menshealthmag was the tipping point for me strangely enough. At the time I thought he looked great and decided I too could look like that and be on that cover. I believe I’ve accomplished 1/2 of my goal.”
Thieriot’s famous friends chimed in on his transformation in the comments. “Holy Thor!!! Give this man a COVER!!!” wrote Jensen Ackles. “You’re always my cover boy,” said SEAL Team co-star A.J. Buckley, while actor Ethan Suplee, who has been on his own weight loss journey, commented: “Bro, you look INCREDIBLE!!”
