Dolph Lundgren Thinks Channing Tatum Or Chris Hemsworth Would Make A Good HE-MAN
Dolph Lundgren had the honor of being the first live-action He-Man in 1987's Masters of the Universe, and when asked which young actor could fill his loincloth he initially thought of Magic Mike's Channing Tatum.
While promoting The Expendables 2 Dolph Lundgren was interviewed by the Huffington Post and asked if there were any young actors that he thought would be a good fit for the role of He-Man.
It came out this week that there might be a new "Masters of the Universe" movie. Who would you pick to take over as He-Man?
Well, let's see. You need somebody who's well built and charming, I suppose. And he can deliver a couple of lines of dialogue, I guess more than I had [laughs]. I mean, Channing Tatum? I don't know. I don't know that many young actors. But he's got a pretty good body. He's got a naturally athletic body which you need, unless you make the guy wear a suit, like Batman. But if you need real muscles, you need somebody who is built.
What about Chris Hemsworth?
Yeah! That's a good idea. That's a cool idea, yeah.
So you're on board?
I'm on board. I second that opinion.
Channing Tatum doesn't seem like such an odd choice seeing as though director Jon M. Chu is said to be in final negotiations to helm the new Masters of the Universe. Chu worked with Tatum on his most recent film, G.I. Joe: Retaliation. While Chris Hemsworth seems like a perfect choice for He-Man, but that's because we've already seen him in a similar role as Thor in two Marvel films, the last being The Avengers.
