Check Out The Actor Who Just Got Cast As Hulk Hogan

The Hollywood Reporter says that Thor actor Chris Hemsworth will play legendary wrestler Hulk Hogan in a Netflix biopic produced by Bradley Cooper and former WCW head Eric Bischoff. Todd Phillips, director for the upcoming DC Comics release The Joker, will direct.

The film will follow the rise of Hulk Hogan, born Terry Bollea, from 1970's circuit wrestler to wrestling phenom. Sources say Hulkster will be pleased with the film.

The film will not address Hogan's most recent scandals. No word yet on a release date for the film

Enjoy this 1988 promo clip I found for Hogan''s Bay Area appearance at the Cow Palace. Hulk Hogan cuts a promo for his tag team match on March 5th, 1988. The match is Hogan teaming with Hacksaw Jim Duggan to take on the Million Dollar Man and Virgil, with Andre the Giant in their corner.
