"Hercules was by far my most demanding role. Six months of hardcore training, prep, and diet. Chariot, sword, and combat training as well. What I didn't count on was the injury that occurred six weeks before shooting (tore two tendons from my pelvis), which then ultimately led to my abdomen wall weakening, which caused three hernia tears. Wrap all that up into a big ass ball of fun pain and you have the most challenging role I've ever had. Funny thing is, if I had to do it all over again, I'd do it twice. Only I'd add a freaking cheat meal once a week or so."
He talked about how Hercules was his toughest role ever.
