Filling the animal hide boots of Arnold Schwarzenegger is no small feat, and to prove you’re up to the task means going the extra mile. Sometimes the extra mile means suiting up in leather clothing and chopping at some house plants.
Jason Momoa did just that and then some when auditioning for “Conan the Barbarian.” This exclusive behind the scenes look from the Blu-ray — available in stores on November 22 — shows Momoa’s original audition tape, reading for the part.
To drive the point home even more and convince some of his detractors, Momoa and director Marcus Nispel created a test reel with the actor decked out in barbarian garb and swinging a broad sword, “killing plants.”
“Conan the Barbarian” is out on Blu-ray and DVD on November 22.
