TV DIVAGAL: The Real Reason Warehouse 13 Star Got Buffed!By Delaina Dixon | July 21, 2011 | Entertainment
If you’ve tuned into Syfy hit series Warehouse 13 this season, you may have noticed that its star Eddie McClintock is showing off his sculpted pecs more often than normal.
What prompted Eddie, who plays a secret service agent who chases down mystical artifacts, to get seriously buffed, working it overtime on the treadmill, stair-stepper and other sweat-inducing cardio devices at the gym?
“Last year, someone posted on my IMDB, ‘What I like about Eddie McClintock is he’s not afraid to show his average man’s body. I’m so glad he doesn’t look like he works out 24/7 like all the other beefcake guys,'” Eddie recalls with a laugh. “I was like, ‘Really?’ Because I do work out hard. This year, I pushed it further and got a trainer and was on a pretty strict diet.”
Obviously, the hard work has paid off — and the series’ PTB have noticed it too. “You’ll be seeing a lot more shirtless Eddie McClintock and [my character] Pete Lattimer,” he says proudly.
That’s fine for his wife, Lynn, who also likes to put in punishing hours at the gym. “People always say to me, ‘Eddie, it doesn’t have to be that hard,'” he shares. “And I always say ‘Why do it then?’ If I’m not going to push myself as hard as I can go every time, what am I doing there?”
Well, Eddie, all our readers are thanking you for your dedication!
