Who could possibly play wrestler Hulk Hogan in an upcoming biopic? The wrestler nominates hunky Thor star Chris Hemsworth for the job.

In a recent interview with Cape Breton News, Hogan admitted he'd once considered his son, Nick, for the role (as he'd told TMZ) but now wants someone with acting experience.

"I said [Nick would] be perfect for it but I think we need a serious, serious actor that knows what he's doing. You know who I thought would be good? That guy that did that action movie, Thor [Chris Hemsworth]," the 60-year-old wrestler said.

While we love us some Thor, we've never thought of the elder Hemsworth brother as a "serious, serious actor," major brooding about his wayward half-brother, Loki aside.

Hemsworth certainly has the buff bod for the job, but do you really want to deface that mug with Hogan's trademark fu manchu?

Here's a little gratuitous, shirtless Hemsworth in slow-motion to prove our point. (And to banish those Monday blues.)
