Having already played Thor in the Marvel movies, Chris Hemsworth is expecting to get even bigger for his upcoming role as Hulk Hogan in Netflix's upcoming film about the wrestler.
While discussing his role in the upcoming biopic recently, the Australian actor described the role as “insanely physical”:
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.
While training for his role as Thor, Hemsworth had previously been eating six meals a day consisting of chicken, eggs, steak, fish, vegetables, among other high protein foods with one meal every three hours according to his trainer, while also training for one to two hours a day five days a week.
The movie is expected to show Hogan’s journey to not only the top of the wrestling world but also his rise to becoming the first professional wrestler to transcend the sport and become a household name outside the industry.
Hemsworth’s increased muscle won’t be the only physical change he will undertake for the role as he also confirmed he will be dying his hair blonde and donning a blonde moustache for the role.
"I’m going to be blonde, probably balding and with a 'tache," he said.
