Jamie Campbell Bower Not Only Bulking Up for New Role but Learning Extreme Martial Art of Krav Maga
Jamie Campbell Bower's need to learn Krav Maga shows how far actor preparations for a role have come since John Wayne's unconvincing performance as a hockey player and Mickey Rooney's lack of believability as a race car driver.
Isn't it enough to expect actors who don't have the physical presence to play a specific character to increase their muscle mass without asking them to get in good enough shape to qualify for consideration by the Israeli armed forces? Ask Jamie Campbell Bower. Bower is taking a left turn from the recent rash of news stories about actors transforming their bodily appearance. Not only is he hitting the gym and downing protein shakes with equal abandon to get in shape for his role in "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" but he is learning the martial of Krav Maga.
Bower's role in "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" is Jace Wayland, Shadowhunter. Shadowhunters are trained from early on in the ways of battling what can broadly be described as demons attempting to enter the worldly realm. Since Jace is supposed to be one the premier Shadowhunters in the story, you can clearly see why learning such a distinctive martial art as Krav Maga would be necessary.
Or can you? The job of an actor has come a long way since the Golden Age of Hollywood. Fencing was about the only special martial art that most male actors were required to learn to lend authenticity to a role. In fact, fencing has been a staple of actor preparation for the stage since at least Shakespeare's era and doubtlessly long before. A look at classic movies reveals that any movie star who appeared in a role where swordplay was required has obviously trained enough to at least make the close-ups believable. In many cases, long shots may have substituted a fencing specialist.
News that Bower is bulking up his physique through protein shakes and gym work is nothing new. In fact, such preparation has almost become routine. What lends Bower's preparation for his role as Jace Wayland a new level of interest is the additional training in Krav Maga. This highly specialized martial art differs somewhat from the traditional Eastern martial arts that place as high an emphasis on philosophy, peace of mind and not utilizing fighting skills as they do on learning how to defend yourself. Krav Maga is basically learning how to do as much damage as possible to an opponent in as short an amount of time as possible. This is serious stuff to learn for the purpose of simulation.
Bower being required to learn these mad fighting skills definitely puts him at odds with the philosophy of old time Hollywood. John Wayne clearly did not put in long hours on the rink in order to convince audiences he was a professional hockey player in "Idol of the Crowds." Any number of actors who played boxers seemed to limit their preparation to learning how to look tough in the ring. And if Mickey Rooney ever tricked anyone to thinking he could actually have been a race car driver in "The Big Wheel" chances are that person has never actually watched an automobile race.
The really strange part is that back in those days the technological gimmickry was severed limited and the authenticity of an entire movie often rose or fell on the back of the ability of the actor to bring realism to the screen. Today, of course, the technology necessary to convince audiences not only that Bower is bulky but that he actually has been training in martial arts most of his life are almost unlimited. What a strange kind of irony it is that the less filmmakers have come to depend on acting for lending realism to a film, the more that is being required of them to create that very realism.
