Dolph Lundgren Wants Chris For “He-Man” Reboot

Recently it was announced that a He-Man remake was in the works from G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu. In the 1987 original, the title hero was played by famed action star of then and now Dolph Lundgren, not to mention also starring Frank Langella as Skeletor. There are high stakes for the remake to match, though Lundgren has some casting ideas that could spice up the planned feature. In an interview with the Huffington Post to promote The Expendables 2, he rattled off a few attributes the new star should have, and put his endorsement behind Channing Tatum and Chris Hemsworth as possible princes of Castle Greyskull.

According to Dolph, the kind of man who can take up his mantle needs to be “well built and charming.” He adds that the actor must be able to deliver dialogue as well. When Channing Tatum (Magic Mike) was mentioned he has this to say, “He’s got a naturally athletic body. You need real muscles, you need somebody who is built.” Later on in the interview, he was asked if he thought Chris Hemsworth (Thor) would be a good pick, to which he replied, “Yeah! That’s a good idea. I’m on board.”

I’ll go with whatever you feel is right, Dolph. (Source)


  1. He’d be great as He-Man! I will be there if you get this role, Chris, front and center at the movies on opening day!

  2. Oh that one they did in the 80’s was TERRIBLE.. Chris would be an awesome He-Man if they do it I hope it’s better than the one they made with Dolph…. Chris would be a HHOOOTT He-man
