According to the movie star, the role will also require him to dye his hair blonde and groom a mustache similar to that of the wrestler. In addition, Hemsworth said he will bury himself deep into learning all he can about the WWE.

He said: "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."

In a related Hollywood story, it was earlier reported that actor Jamie Fox had to undergo a freakish transformation for a role in an upcoming flick where he is set to play the legendary boxer Mike Tyson.

The 52-year-old bulked up his upper body quite impressively as he geared up for the role as a former heavyweight champion boxer in Mike Tyson’s biopic.
