Calum Von Moger is set to play Arnold Schwarzenegger in a new film about the world's most famous bodybuilder-turned-movie star and we are oh-so fine with it.

The fitness fanatic appeared on Today Extra to talk about being cast in the film Bigger where he revealed said he was excited to play his "idol".

“I looked up to him my whole life while I was training,” Calum said, explaining he'd been in the gym himself since he was just 14-years-old.

The movie focuses on Arnie in his early career as a young fitness fanatic before he found fame in Hollywood, and Calum has been getting some tips from the big man himself in preparation.

“He stopped and helped me to do some poses, asked me to do front double bicep," the 27-year-old said. "He was awesome."

Dubbed "Arnie 2.0", Calum will begin filming in the next month and has already been practising his accent for the role.

Though he was born and raised in Victoria, he also has Austrian heritage.

We're sure there will be plenty of girls lining up to see him flex his muscles on the big screen.
