Actor Peter Sarsgaard warms up for his nightly appearances in a Broadway play by playing topless table tennis in his New York apartment.
The actor has a special gadget that fires balls back at him, meaning his partner Maggie Gyllenhaal doesn't have to participate in the bizarre spectacle.
Sarsgaard, currently starring in Chekhov's The Seagull, says, "It's my pre-show warm up. I'm in there frequently playing ping pong against a robot, topless and wearing shorts."
