LOOK: Austrian bodybuilder to portray young Arnold Schwarzenegger in new film
It’s no secret that Arnold Schwarzenegger catapulted the sport of of bodybuilding into the mainstream, and any man would have a hard time replicating his likeness on the big screen.
The seemingly impossible task has been given to 27-year-old Austrian bodybuilder Calum Von Moger, who will portray the seven-time Mr. Olympia winner in the upcoming film ”Bigger,” according to The Huffington Post.
Dubbed as “Schwarzenegger 2.0” for his uncanny resemblance to the actor-turned-politician, Von Moger has become quite the social media influencer, gaining over 2 million followers on Instagram.
He also appeared as himself in the bodybuilding documentary “Generation Iron 2” last May.
“Bigger,” meanwhile, will highlight brothers and bodybuilding pioneers Joe and Ben Weider, and their quest to convince a young Schwarzenegger to come to the United States.
As of this writing, the film does not have an official release date. /ra
