18 March 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Miles Teller has revealed his incredible transformation for his forthcoming role as world champion lightweight boxer Vinny Pazienza.

The 28-year-old Whiplash star shared a picture of his bulked up physique and impressive six-pack during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Speaking about being offered the role in the boxing biopic Bleed for This, Teller joked: "When they offered me the part, I was like, 'I can't grow a moustache, I'm not in very good shape..' I literally said, 'Are you sure?'"

Fallon produced a before-and-after shirtless snap of Teller flexing his biceps in the gym... which Teller let slip that Fallon had asked for.

When teased about his facial hair, he laughed: "I take a long to grow some... Facial hair, man! Everyone has their strengths - I'm a great dancer, I have great hair, I don't have weird body hair.
