Tough guy Ricky Whittle won’t be in The Rock’s Shadow for long
RICKY WHITTLE has warned Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Vin Diesel he’s coming for their tough guy roles after starring in US drama American Gods.
And the ex-Hollyoaks star, who plays former convict Shadow Moon in the hit show, looks the part after showing off his buff body for Men’s Fitness UK.
‘Hollywood’s quick to pigeonhole you,’ the Oldham-born star, 35, said. ‘So I fall into that action-man character slot.’
He added: ‘It’s an honour but there’s an intimidation factor — they’ve got great CVs, so you switch the mindset to, “Maybe they’re intimidated by me”.’
