Former Underwear Model to Star in Warcraft Movie
Duncan Jones’ film adaptation of Blizzard’s Warcraft universe has found its leading man, according to Variety. He is none other than Vikings star Travis Fimmel, who was once an underwear model for Calvin Klein. Though Fimmel has been doing the acting thing for a while now, his claim to fame remains that he was one of the rare male models to take on a sort of celebrity status a decade ago. Allegedly, a billboard in London featuring his sexy bod had to be taken down because commuters were to busy gawking at his hotness to continue progressing down the road at a reasonable speed.
But, yes, he’s an actor now. Aside from History Channel’s Vikings, he also co-starred in cop drama The Beast with Patrick Swayze during the aughts. And now he will possibly be propelled to stardom as the lead in a megabudget movie based on a video game. Let’s just hope he’s better at being a movie star than fellow Aussie Sam Worthington.
Movie goes into production in early 2014.
