Even in the early days of cinema, a leading man (especially a “hero”) needed to be in tip-top shape. These actors are to be seen as brave, wise, but above all, strong. While other fads have come and gone in the movie industry, the fitness requirements of a top-billed star have only gotten more stringent. There is a handful of actors out there who can live up to the hype, but none more so than Chadwick Boseman.

The Next Big Thing

Not only was hand-eye coordination a must in order to properly depict the sports legend, but speed and agility played a major role as well. In take after take, Chadwick worked to perfect the iconic sprint and slide of Jackie Robinson.
