Turns out, Hulk Hogan is even more of a physical specimen than a superhero — ’cause Chris Hemsworthis beefing up beyond God of Thunder size to play the legendary wrestler.
Chris says he has to get more jacked than ever for the upcoming biopic … and that includes all the ‘Thor’ flicks, where CH already resembled a Norse god.
Chris told Total Film … “As you can imagine, the preparation for the role will be insanely physical. I will have to put on more size than I ever have before, even more than I put on for Thor.” He added, “There is the accent as well as the physicality and the attitude.”
It’s supposed to be a full-blown transformation, and BTW … Chris said he’d probably be balding in the movie. Of course … he’ll also be sporting Hulk’s iconic ‘stache.
The movie tracks HH as he skyrocketed to wrestling fame in the 1980s. As wrestling fans know … Hulk transformed the sport into family-friendly entertainment and the popularity of professional wrestling exploded.
