      I would love to see the Hulk v Andre wrestlemania body slam play out here.

    I think Chris Hemsworth is an interesting choice to play the Hulk. I am not sure how much the two really look alike, but i'm sure some makeup and what not will make it close enough. Chris does have a ton of charisma and I could see him ham it up here.

    Todd Philips also has some great chops directing with the Hangover series, War Dogs, Due Date, Old School, and Road Trip under his belt. Given his track record, I am going to assume this will be more of a comedy as opposed to a more straight laced biopic.

    I am interested to see how it shakes out.

      The internet is way ahead of you, it seems. Just add that classic Hogan bleached blonde hair and goatee to Hemsworth and the resemblance would actually be rather uncanny, IMO.
