There are very few sports entertainers that transcend into Hollywood and become multifaceted stars. Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is arguably the most well known to do it, being one of the most successful people in TinselTown to date. But, before him, there is one wrestler who was a true American icon taking not only the squared circle, but the silver screen by storm: ‘The Immortal’ Hulk Hogan. The Hulkster was an international superstar, a larger than life hero who told people to say their prayers and take their vitamins. Now, he’s getting his very own biopic, and he’ll be played by another ‘immortal’ in Thor portrayer, Chris Hemsworth.
Curious how it may look? Well, check out this face swap to see for yourself.
WWE Insider, Ryan Satin, shared a face swap video with Hemsworth’s face on Hogan. It definitely makes you excited to see Chris take on the role as ‘Hollywood’ Hulk Hogan. Taking the role of a legend whose is on nearly everyone’s Mt. Rushmore of wrestling is no easy task. Especially considering that Hogan’s career has not been without controversy. The story will be an epic one to behold, as Hogan’s career is chocked full of interesting and dynamic stories that spanned his decades long illustrious career.
As the world gets back to normal, albeit slowly, Hollywood is getting back to work. It’s unclear exactly when Hemsworth will be able to shoot this project, considering that everyone’s plates are extra full with the backlog of films in the works, but one thing is for sure, Hemsworth is working on getting himself those 24 inch pythons to help seal his look. Biopics are an interesting medium, especially when the person who is the basis for the movie is still alive.
Even the greatest actors can have some trouble with these films, based solely on their looks not always matching up. But, regardless, thanks to this video, it looks like Hemsworth was definitely the right choice to play one of the greatest wrestlers of all time.
