Zac Efron Goes FULL WRESTLER With RIPPED Muscles for 'The Iron Claw'
Sean Durkin is the director of The Iron Claw, a drama in which Zac Efron plays Kevin Von Erich, the only son left of the famous pro-wrestler Fritz Von Erich, who was famous in the 1950s and 1960s.
Jeremy Allen White from The Bear will play Kevin's brother Kerry, Maura Tierney will play their mother Doris Von Erich, and Holt McCallany from Mindhunter will play their father Fritz Von Erich.
The name "The Iron Claw" comes from Fritz's famous finishing hold, which was later used by all of his wrestler children.
The Daily Mail recently released photos of Efron filming The Iron Claw that show how much he has changed physically for his upcoming role. Efron is seen walking into his trailer with nothing on but a towel around his waist.
He has gained a lot of muscle under his golden tan, and he has a retro bowl-cut haircut. This isn't the first time the actor has changed his body for a role. Efron recently talked about how he changed his body for the 2017 movie Baywatch and how it affected both his mental and physical health.
Back in September, the actor talked about how his "unachievable" level of fitness made him sad and keep him up at night. Even though it was bad, Efron's role in The Iron Claw seems to be worth the risk.
He looks like wrestler Kevin Von Erich at the height of his career in the 1970s and 1980s. Von Erich used to be the WCWA World Heavyweight Champion. He was 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighed 222 pounds.
In his acting career, Efron has shown that he isn't afraid of a challenge. Since High School Musical, the actor has done some risky things with his career.
He has tried to get away from his image as a sweet teen idol by playing dark characters in movies like The Paperboy and as serial killer Ted Bundy in Netflix's Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile.
So far, The Iron Claw looks like it will show a new side of the actor. The movie is currently being filmed in Louisiana, and Efron hasn't said anything about how much he's changed.
The true story of the rise and fall of the Von Erich wrestling dynasty is told in "The Iron Claw," which also stars Jeremy Allen White, Lily James, Harris Dickinson, Maura Tierney, and Holt McCallany along with Efron.
Fans have been talking about how much Efron changed physically for the role on social media in response to the photo.
Some people have been amazed by his muscles, while othershave said that his new look reminds them of Ned Flanders from "The Simpsons" and Lord Farquaad from "Shrek."
