Simon Pegg has shocked fans by showing off his new physique.

The Mission Impossible star has clearly been inspired by his co-star Tom Cruise at his peak, as he is now completely ripped for a new movie project.

Have a look at his new photo via Instagram:

The rather shocking post, uploaded by fitness professional Nick Lower, is captioned: "#SimonPegg 6 month body transformation for #InheritanceMovie. The brief for this role was lean, VERY lean. It required a specific body shape & look.

"Body weight: 78kg (down to) 69kg. Body Fat: 12% (down to) 8%. A mix of strength, circuits, core & 60km p/w trail runs! A sound nutrition plan that worked for him and his goals. 6 months of hard work has paid off and I tip my hat to you sir..."

There's hard work, and then there's seemingly impossible work.

We'll have to wait and see exactly what all this hard work is for, other than it's for a movie called Inheritance.
