Jay Pharoah may have just become your new celebrity crush.

The former Saturday Night Live cast member showed off his workout results on Twitter and Instagram Tuesday in hopes to motivate his nearly 370,000 followers.

“Dropped 40 pounds over the last year no supplements just training n hard work YOU CAN DO IT 2!” Pharoah, 28, tweeted along with a sweaty, shirtless mirror selfie.

The star is prepping for his role in the upcoming Showtime pilot White Famous, executive produced by Jamie Foxx.

“One more week till we shoot and I ain’t been this weight since I was 12!!! #whitefamous #gymlife,” Pharoah first revealed on Sunday.

In early August, it was announced that Pharoah and longtime cast mate Taran Killam would not be returning to season 42 of the NBC sketch comedy show.

White Famous is a series revolving around a talented, rising African-American comedian, Floyd Mooney (Pharoah), who is trying to hold on to his credibility as he becomes mainstream popular, or “white famous.”
