The actor lost 50 pounds for the role, which is based on Ron Woodroof, who extended the 30 days to live given by his doctors to more than seven years, through a mixture of experimental treatments and drugs,unapproved by the US government. He defied the bans and shared his imports with other sick people through a semi-legal buyers club. Critics say the breakout role will sure bring the actor and the movie Academy Award nominations.
