There's no surprise like finding out someone is secretly jacked. Remember when Chidi from The Good Place took off his shirt and everyone was like, "Wait, what?"
Turns out Kumail Nanjiani is following in the footsteps of Chris Pratt and spent the past year getting out-of-this-world fit for a role in Marvel's Eternals. The Academy Award-nominated actor, comedian, and writer decided to push himself on a fitness journey once finding out he scored a part in the MCU—and nobody is okay.
My biggest surprise was the dude on The Good Place. Yikes! pic.twitter.com/8IGq2VqNxE— john heath (@johnoheath) December 16, 2019
Kumail took to Instagram to post some "thirsty shirtless" pictures of his newly-sculpted bod after 12 months of rigorous dieting and exercising. Needless to say, it seems like his wife, Emily V. Gordon, is quite pleased.
Nanjiani remarked in his Instagram post how the total body transformation would have been virtually impossible without the help of top-of-the-line professionals constantly working with him and monitoring his training. He also didn't shy away from admitting that this never would have happened had it not been paid for by the studio.

Nanjiani's ripped abs have inspired people to start compiling lists of other actors who are actually super buff under their nerdy exterior. Apparently, everybody from Steve Carell to Hank Azaria is actually herculean powerhouses in disguise.
