The brothers, who co-founded the Mr. Olympia bodybuilding contest that is International Federation of Bodybuidling, discovered Arnold Schwarzenegger and they encouraged him to come to the U.S. Prior to being two times Governor of California and one of the most venerable action heroes of all time in history. Schwarzenegger won Mr. Universe title at the age of 20 and then continued on to win seven Mr. Olympia titles.
When George Gallo first set out to make his film Bigger that was about the-top lives of Joe and Ben Weider, the founders of the Mr. Olympia bodybuilding contest, then the entertainment industry predicted one tough casting: Who the hell could ever play a young Arnold Schwarzenegger?
Luckily for all bodybuilding and fitness fans everywhere, it appears that Gallo has finally found the perfect actor to portray a young Schwarzenegger in Mr. Universe 2014 winner Calum Von Moger.
The 27-year-old fitness enthusiast is a Mr Universe winner from Australia who has already been deemed ‘Schwarzenegger 2.0’ for his similar uncanny resemblance to the former professional bodybuilder.
Callum Von Moger As Young Arnold Schwarzenegger
Calum’s acting chops are though limited, but he’s been training his entire life for the part. The only other film von Moger has been a part of was staring as himself in the heavy lifting documentary named Generation Iron.
At the very least, his biceps appear to be roughly the same circumference as the Terminator-turned-governor’s. It turns out, Schwarzenegger has been a longtime influence on Von Moger’s training.
Schwarzenegger became his primary source of inspiration. The physiques of the 1970’s were the actual epitome of bodybuilding for Calum. Taking inspiration from these body building icons, Calum is driven with a strong ambition to create a customized classic physique that is all his own.
Arnold Schwarzenegger has a storied career in the weight training world after winning the Mr. Universe title at the age of 20 and continuing on to win seven Mr. Olympia titles.
