Jackson dropped the weight for a role in the upcoming film Things Fall Apart, in which he plays a star football running back who has been diagnosed with cancer.  He definitely achieved the look.  Jackson, who co-wrote the film, lost over 50 pounds to get into character.

The grammy award winning star reportedly went on a nine week strict liquid diet and spent three hours a day on a treadmill walk regimen to go from 214 to 160 pounds. 

“I was starving,” he told, “I’ve been eating. I’ll be back in shape in no time!”

Jackson is no stranger to finding a way to attract a great deal of media attention at the perfect time.  The release of the photos came just days before the launching of his 21-city U.S. tour, “The Invitation”, which kicks off Saturday in Detroit, MI.
