After eight grueling weeks
of shooting in Jordan, Liam Brody returns to the States today and to the girl
waiting back home, Amanda Nathan — who celebrates her 23rd birthday
tonight! Hosted by new PR queen Wendy Krentz, Nathan will be reuniting with her
soldier sweetheart at booze-free hotspot, Agno (reportedly chosen to
accommodate friend and recent rehab graduate, Ian Marsh).
Since an early visit to set
in the Jordanian city of Amman, Nathan has gone a near three months without
seeing on-again beau, Brody, who sustained several ghastly on-set injuries
while filming the Terrence Rambis biopic
Reports allege that Nathan, who visited
Brody following his first injury, spent much of the past few weeks pleading
with her boyfriend to utilize a stunt double.
Unfortunately for the worried girlfriend, those pleas fell
upon deaf ears as Brody opted to perform each of his own stunts, continuing his
strong lobby for an Academy Award.
As most Rambis films are,
is already an Oscar frontrunner and has
reportedly gleaned from Brody the most powerful and transforming performance of
his career – a portion of which can be seen in the actor’s extra hunky
new build! According to on-set trainers, the already-built Brody packed on over
ten pounds of pure muscle during his eight weeks in Jordan, which allegedly
included impossibly difficult training exercises from the actual pararescue
training pipeline! According to sources on set, Brody impressively completed
actual combat, diving, airborne, and basic survival skills during his character
bootcamp and acquired both the physical and mental state of an elite Special
Hopefully, the convincing
act will shoot Brody to the A-list’s elite! Along with a possible Oscar,

Well, now you’re actually

Because Liam Brody.
From the looks of it, the
guy spent his time in Jordan eating a Costco-sized carton of raw eggs a day
while bench-pressing Terrence Rambis and a stack of crew members between
Seriously though, we’re
hearing that production had to install an especially sturdy exercise bar on-set
because Liam so often spent his down time doing 100-pound weighted
You heard me.
While I can only do one pull-up of
questionable authenticity, Liam can apparently do a set of ten with two
fifty-pound weights strapped to his midsection (yes, this is an exercise that
people do for non-torture reasons).
So, yeah, all signs point toward Liam Brody being a descendent of
Hercules, and Rambis agrees.
Said director, Rambis,
“Liam’s unreal work ethic is part of why
has become my proudest piece of work in a twenty plus-year career.
I have been living, eating and
breathing this film and I can confidently say that Liam has too.
He has mastered the type of impossible
training that an actual airman would have to complete to become pararescue, and
that in itself is an accomplishment to be proud of for life.
But in addition to that, I truly
believe that Liam should win an Oscar for his efforts in

He gave 110% to this film.”

plus a good chunk of his own health and personal safety, apparently.
While shooting, Liam broke his hand and
dislocated a shoulder within the first week and kept on truckin’, even through
some nasty, stitch-requiring lacerations, only stopping when a shattered elbow
took him down for a few weeks.
Even then, Liam reportedly got agitated with doctors and insisted on
continuing production, nearly getting his way until new BFF Rambis stepped in
to insist on rest and rehabilitation – after all, he’ll be needing Liam
in full health to take the starring role in the highly anticipated action-thriller,
