Benicio Del Toro to Play 390 lbs Undercover FBI Agent

Posted: March 5th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Benicio Del Toro to Play 390 lbs Undercover FBI AgentSubmit Comment
Deadline is reporting that Benicio Del Toro (The Wolfman) has signed on to play daring undercover FBI agent Jack Garcia in a movie called "Making Jack Falcone," to be directed by Steven Soderbergh (Che, Ocean's Eleven, Traffic).

Before he retired, Garcia took down 39 members of New York's Gambino Crime family. The Cuban-born agent was so convincing while pretending to be Italian that he was invited to become a made man before the feds were forced to shut down the case.

Garcia is a big man, standing 6'4 feet tall and weighing north of 390 lbs. Chances are that Del Toro will have to put on a good amount of weight to play the part, but this is nothing new for Soderbergh who had Matt Damon recently gain weight for "The Informant."

Garcia had previously appeared on "60 Minutes" to talk about his preparation to go undercover and what finally forced the feds to get him out. Check out the video below.

that guy in real life has balls to do that sh*t and then go on TV about it.

Impossible - Del Toro said several times that he will never gain weight for the role. He said, he felt "disgusting" in the role of Acosta.

Never say never I guess. Losing weight for a role is far more impressive than gaining it. For some reason the minute I read this all I could see was Vince from Entourage in the fatsuit playing Pablo Escobar. That looked too much like a fatass Del Toro :)

yeah, i've always heard its VERY unhealthy to gain weight and lose it like that. doing that in the 90's aged benicio so much. watch a pre-fear and loathing and watch a post-fear and loathing benicio movie and you can see it put 10+ years on him. i doubt he'll gain that much weight again.

I think his best roles are in snatch and sin city small but f*cking hilarious roles.

no way someones gaining like 300 lbs for a role, that would be pure stupidity. fat suit all the way.

@Dillinger
COMPLETELY agree.. watching that and soon as he said only 12 years?! i was thinking was it really worth going DEEP undercover for 2 decades just to put a BOSS in jail for only 12 years?! id be so pissed... guarantee a week before DePalma get gets out, I'll see an article talking about Jack Falcone being whacked... even though Henry Hill is SOMEHOW still alive today... last time i heard he was arrested thought for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest lol

The dude has no neck It's just a head who sticks to the body because of the fat that glues it together. And there's no way Del Toro can gain weight enough to look like that. Doesn't John Goodman need any new parts?

Ted: It says that this guy had nearly 40 mobsters put in jail because if his going undercover. So it wasn't just the mob boss.

However, I don't understand why this guy isn't close to death. He is nearing 400 lbs so his heart must be over worked.
