ATTENTION! ATTENTION! Kumail Nanjiani, the guy from The Big Sick and “Silicon Valley” is now ripped. It didn’t come out of no where, Kumail is prepping for his role in The Eternals coming out November of next year from Marvel.

In fact, that’s what his post is all about. Thanking the trainers, chefs and moral support team that made this transformation possible over the last year. And the big movie company who paid for it all. Kumail’s extremely proud of his new bod and wanted to show it off to the world, with a hint of humility. He included the tag #thirstyshirtless after the long list of thank yous.

I never thought I'd be one of those people who would post a thirsty shirtless, but I've worked way too hard for way too long so here we are. You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain. I found out a year ago I was going to be in Marvel's Eternals and decided I wanted to transform how I looked. I would not have been able to do this if I didn't have a full year with the best trainers and nutritionists paid for by the biggest studio in the world. I'm glad I look like this, but I also understand why I never did before. It would have been impossible without these resources and time. So big thanks to @grantrobertsfit who started working with me at the beginning of the year and made me understand true physical pain for months and months. Then, once we started shooting, a massive thanks to @davidhigginslondon and his team (@ellispartridge, @thebeardypt, @tomcheesemanfitness) for training me almost every day and making me strong, limber and injury free. I can almost touch my toes now. (And thank you for forcing me to do cheat meals David.) Matthews Street Catering for their delicious and healthy meals. And finally, the biggest thanks goes to @emilyvgordon for putting up with me complaining and talking about only working out and dieting for the last year. I promise I'll be interesting again some day. #thirstyshirtless (Photo by @markupson.) (edit: I left off one very important person: @lancecallahan who trained me for 6 years and helped me build the foundation I could use to do this. Thank you!)

Putting yourself out there is one thing, but reading the comments afterwards is what separates the celebrity from soon-to-be-superhero. Here’s a collection of the best comments from Kumail’s Hollywood peers: (fyi, we saved the best one – Rob McElhenney – for last)

It's been a weird couple of days... This is NOT photoshopped. Pornhub changed their picture of the Muscular Men category to... me. As I said, weird couple of days.
