Chris Hemsworth chats taking on role of wrestler Hulk Hogan for Netflix biopic

“I’m going to be blonde, probably balding and with a ‘tache.”

Chris Hemsworth makes up half of the Hemsworth brothers who are both very well known for their gorgeous…acting skills and their stunning… acting skills and of course we cannot forget about their sexy… acting skills!

The Australian actor has signed up to take on the role of infamous WWE wrestler Hulk Hogan and will have to completely transform his whole look for the part, he told Total Film about his “insanely physical” transformation to play WWE wrestler.

Talking about the film Hemsworth said – “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.”

“There is the accent as well as the physicality and the attitude. I will also have to do a deep dive into the rabbit hole of the wrestling world, which I’m really looking forward to doing.”

The Avengers: Endgame actor will star in a forthcoming Netflix biopic, which is being directed by Joker’s Todd Phillips.The film will look at Hogan’s rise to fame through wrestling from newcomer to the household name he is now.

The film hasn’t started filming just yet but when lockdowns ease a bit more this one will start rolling, back in April Chris said he hadn’t yet read a finished script.”This movie is going to be a really fun project,” he told Total Film.

When Hemsworth was asked about the movie a few months ago he told Screen Rant “It’s sort of in the process now. I’m just fascinated by that world, and I think they’re pretty keen to show a side of the world that people haven’t seen before. I’m as intrigued as you are.”
