• Chris Hemsworth Putting On Size To Play Hulk Hogan

Australian actor Chris Hemsworth is set to play the role of “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan in a Netflix biopic about the life of the biggest name in the history of Professional Wrestling.

During an interview with Total Film, Hemsworth said the following about this upcoming project:

“This movie is going to be a really fun project. 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.”

Chris Hemsworth As Hulk Hogan

Some wrestling fans had issues with Chris playing this role as they thought he isn’t big enough to play the role of the Hulkster.

Chris addressed that and said he’s working very hard to gain size:

“I put on a lot of weight — I put on about 20 pounds at one point. It was purely eating, eating, eating, working out and working out, trying to sleep as much as you can — that’s the other third of the equation.”

Chris then revealed his diet:

“Chicken breasts and protein shakes, boiled chicken… clean meats, the right carbs. Sickly stuff.”

Chris noted that the production of the film has a long way to go, as he hasn’t even seen the script yet.
