Actor and comedian Kumail Nanjiani shared a series of thirst trap photos of himself and it caused the internet to short circuit.
The 41-year-old “Silicon Valley” star posted the photos of himself looking ripped on Instagram on Monday, writing, “I never thought I’d be one of those people who would post a thirsty shirtless, but I’ve worked way too hard for way too long so here we are. You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.”
Nanjiani will take on the role of master samurai Kingo in Marvel’s “Eternals” next year.
“I found out a year ago I was going to be in Marvel’s Eternals and decided I wanted to transform how I looked,” he wrote.
However, Nanjiani mentions that he would not have been able to look the way he does for the movie without all the resources made available to him by Marvel.
“I would not have been able to do this if I didn’t have a full year with the best trainers and nutritionists paid for by the biggest studio in the world,” he continued. “I’m glad I look like this, but I also understand why I never did before. It would have been impossible without these resources and time.”
Simu Liu, Shang-Chi in Marvel’s “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings,” joked about Nanjiani’s new body on Twitter.
