Matthew Fox has gone from brainy to brawny.
The former Lost star – who played Dr Jack Shephard in hit ABC series Lost – looks unrecognisable as a beefed up cage fighter in his new movie Alex Cross.
Fox, 45, has seemingly shed every ounce of body fat – and must have been working out hard, resulting in an impressively ripped physique.

The actor plays cage-fighter/killer Picasso in the film, which is set for release in October.
He is seen here in newly-released stills of the rebooted movie franchise, which will see Tyler Perry taking over the titular role from Morgan Freeman.

A spokesperson at the Deschutes County, Oregon, District Attorney's office said that although he was released later that day, on May 9 the actor was charged with driving under the influence (DUI) and driving without a license.
