I can’t think of anything worse than casting a wrestler or body builder. A modern audience wouldn’t take that seriously. Maybe in the 80s with the whole pumping iron stuff, but not anymore. You will never see a wrestler (apart from proven “stars” like the Rock who can actually act) or a body builder fronting a big budget studio film anymore. And thank god for it! It would immediately give off an odour of cheese that the film would never be able to shake off. It would be more damaging to the film than anything else. There are plenty of actual actors who can fit the bill. He-Man doesn’t need to be monstrously big with a 24-pack like the original toy.
