Gyllenhaal, who was considered as a replacement for Tobey Maguire in the currently-shooting SPIDER-MAN sequel, has been working his hardest to maximise his muscles for the role.
A source at Hollywood's EASTON'S gym says, "He's become quite a regular over the past few weeks - and you can already see the results. He's pretty bulky compared to how he was before.
"I'm sure he'd be really disappointed if they gave the role to one of the other guys after all his hard preparation. You can see he's really determined to land this one."
The movie is expected to go before cameras in February (04).03/09/2003 21:27
