Entertainment Chris O'Dowd thought Imagine video 'was for charity'
Chris Hemsworth will undergo 'insanely physical' training for Hulk Hogan biopic
Chris Hemsworth's preparations for the Hulk Hogan biopic will be "insanely physical", as he takes on the role of the former wrestling pro.The 'Thor: Love & Thunder' actor signed up to portray the wrestling legend last year and though the movie is a long way off going into production, the 36-year-old star is already thinking about the body transformation he'll need to undergo to look the part.
Chris O'Dowd initially thought Gal Gadot's 'Imagine' video was for charity.
The 40-year-old actor and his wife Dawn O'Porter both starred in the much-maligned video, which saw various celebrities perform part of John Lennon's iconic track amid the coronavirus crisis - but Chris has now admitted he didn't give the concept proper consideration.
Speaking about the video - which was widely mocked online - he shared: "I presumed it was a charity thing.
"But yeah ... we were in that first wave of creative diarrhoea that seemed to encase the entire world ... it was a thing that we didn't need, that everybody hated. It was kind of bizarre to be even momentarily part of that maelstrom."
Chris Barrie wasn't sure if Red Dwarf would return after original run
Chris Barrie wasn't convinced a 'Red Dwarf' revival might never happen despite regular communication about future plans.The 60-year-old actor - who reprised his role as Rimmer in the recent feature length film 'The Promised Land' - admitted while there were always talks of more episodes after the eighth series in 1999, it wasn't until an initial return in 2009 that he really believe the project would come to light.
Chris also revealed that he and his wife almost had to spend the coronavirus lockdown in different countries.
The couple live in the US but Dawn was on her way home from England just before the lockdown was introduced.
The comedy star - who has Art, five, and Valentine, two, with Dawn - told BBC Radio 4: "That was quite a scary moment of, like, we've no idea what lays ahead, and suddenly I'm just going to be doing this with the lads, which would be interesting but not ideal.
"So that was definitely a 'get on a plane as soon as you can' kind of moment, which was weird. Other than that, I mean, we've been lucky in that it hasn't affected us terribly in terms of health or anything like that."
Since then, the actor has has been struggling to find time for work during the lockdown.
He explained: "I've got a writing job, Dawn's got a writing job, and suddenly we're doing the parenting - like, the home schooling.
"This is what everybody can relate to around the country, is just, 'God, I wouldn't mind just a bit of headspace.'"
