Unlike most Hollywood talent, funny people don’t need great physiques, as long as they have some serious comedic muscle to flex. But don’t tell that to Think Like a Man star Kevin Hart! The comedian has gotten seriously buff for his role in the upcoming movie Ride Along.
In the movie, he plays a second-grade teacher who must endure a harrowing ride-along with his disapproving prospective brother-in-law, a tough cop played by Ice Cube.
Kevin posted an Instagram photo (viewable below) from the set on Monday showing off his muscular chest, with the caption “Movie-ready, damn it... Gym results... I look like a f—king action figure,” humorously adding the hashtag, “#gapkidsmodel.”
The film is just one of seven movies the newly-buff 32-year-old is appearing in over the next two years, including meta-comedy The End of the World, boxing farce Grudge Match, crime flick send-up Valet Guys, and Olympic biopic The Impossible Dream.
