“Coach don’t want to hear about this”

Posted in Articles on January 10, 2012 by oldcountrystrong

The other day me and Z were having a conversation about the new Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises, and how much we were pumped for it. Well during this discussion we started in on a critical issue for the Filer boys, Tom Hardy’s portrayal as the main villain Bane. Bane in the comics is….well fucking huge. He uses a super steroid called Venom for crying out loud. Anyway we debated whether or not Tom Hardy was big enough to play. Z mentions that he had just watched Warrior starring Tom Hardy and said he was jacked in the movie (his traps are so big you could see them from space). Z also remembered that he saw a picture of Hardy in another movie called Bronson in which he was massive and decided it should probably work. I agreed with Z and than made the comment which birthed this post.

“Yeah he puts on a shit load of weight ’cause he pretty skinny”

Z was incredulous of this statement but I assured him that Hardy puts on a ton of muscle but that generally he ain’t a big guy all the time. Don’t believe me here’s the evidence.

So, the guy goes from what 160 (maybe) to 190-200. That’s a pretty dramatic change. How did he do it? Train, take his vitamins, and say his prayers? Anyway this lead to me and Z wondering about other actors getting huge for their roles. Remember these actors aren’t the most jacked ever, these actors Hulked up the most.

Gerard Butler

Gerard Butler was just another Scotish actor trying to get by. He had a couple opportunities as the leading man in a couple movies but I’m going to be honest most of those movies were crap  and he was running out of chances. So when he got the lead in 300 as King Leonidas he decided to go all in and decided to get yoked out of his mind. I mean he got so big and cut up that he could be in the running for buffest characters in a movie ever. I mean look at the guy, that’s not normal. And what did he do with all the momentum? He blew it again by making a bunch of stupid rom-coms, idiot. Alas, poor Gerard is the runner up. The winner is…

Ed Norton

 Make way for the champ, folks. Again Ed Norton was not the biggest mofo ever in American History X but the man got swolled up up maybe more than anyone else. I mean have you ever seen Ed Norton? Look at Fight Club, he had his shirt off for a decent amount of time in the movie and he wasn’t even skinny ripped. He is naturall so skinny that he played Bruce Banner in the last Incredible Hulk movie. He got so big for American History X that Arnold called him up and asked if he used steroids. Ed’s response was that lifted for 3 months and ate a lot of protein? I’m not sure who he’s trying to fool with that BS, us or himself. Regardless, anyone who goes from looking like the scrawny kid getting sand kicked in his face to looking he just took the Super Hero Serum wins this contest hands down.

Now these choices are just like my opinion man, there are plenty of others out there. If you feel there is someone else who fits this criteria (male or female), post your pick or picks in comments.
