These actors had to essentially become the athletes they were playing on screen! Subscribe to our channel: http://goo.gl/ho3Hg6
Successful actors have hit home runs on screen with famous films that we all know and love. But the skills they gained in some of these signature roles gave them a competitive edge against not only other actors, but some big time athletes too. The actors chose to push themselves to the limit to portray famous boxers and baseball players, race car drivers and wrestlers. Whether they were born athletes or made into sports stars thanks to million dollar workout routines, these 10 actors became pro athletes for the roles they portrayed.
Sometimes the characters were real. Other times, they were entirely fictitious. Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone became fighters who were just as famous as real boxers, like Jake LaMotta (who was played by Robert DeNiro in Raging Bull). Hillary Swank also jumped on the boxing train in her believable turn as a pugilist in Million Dollar Baby. Mickey Rourke’s hulking physique was handy when he portrayed a wrestler and Jamie Foxx easily sold us on his performance as a professional football player. Although Kevin Costner has played baseball players in multiple movies, he became believable golfer in Tin Cup. Charlie Sheen, who played baseball as a young man, was able to channel his abilities when he starred in Major League. At his older age, Will Ferrell was able to play on multiple teams for charity. And while Tom Cruise performs so many death defying acts in the latest Mission Impossible movies, he put himself in the hot seat as a racecar driver early in his career.
