Super Nerd Kumail Nanjiani got Super Ripped for Super Flick

You may have seen Kumail Nanjiani in the movie Stuber, or, if you were sick the weekend that was in theaters, in The Big Sick where he plays a 20-something comic who looks 55 for some reason. If you did catch him in these films, you may have noticed he’s a schlubby little dude whose wife has complained about him wearing baggy, unstylish clothes to hide his figure.

Then he got cast in a Marvel movie.

That right, much like Chris Pratt, Kumail got super jacked to be in a comic book movie.

I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess he’s playing the gay character. There’s really no other reason to get that cut to play a minor character in an ensemble CGI film.

Well, aside from having an entire team of trainers and dietitians to get you that fit on Disney’s dime. I’d do the same thing if I were him. Take that s**t right out of Bob Iger’s paycheck.
