After landing a part in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, presumably most actors crack open a bottle of champagne.
But for some, the prospect of appearing in spandex on the big screen before millions of eyes across the globe inspires them to get down to the gym.
Kumail Nanjiani is the latest to do just that, following in the footsteps of the likes of Chris Pratt by transforming his body from fairly unremarkable, to very bloody remarkable.
The 41-year-old took to Instagram to flaunt his new bod, citing his role as Kingo in The Eternals as the motivation for getting in tip top shape.
Captioning the post, he thanked the various trainers and nutritionists who had helped him along the way and claimed he could almost touch his toes now.
Nanjiani will star alongside the likes of Angelina Jolie, Kit Harrington and Richard Madden in the film, which is due to be released on the 6 November 2020.
