The film is a buddy cop action comedy in which Hemworth “goes undercover to solve a string of casino heists where a troupe of Australian male erotic dancers are suspected as culprit,” writes The Hollywood Reporter. He’ll star alongside Tiffany Haddish, the comedienne who starred in the film comedy Girls Trip and the lesser-known TV movie Honk If You’re an L.A. Douchebag.
Is it wrong of us to hope that Hemsworth’s new comedy will have him packing as much heat as he did in his 2017 comedy Vacation?
While it’s unclear when Down Under Cover will be released, Hemsworth will play a shirtless muscular performer of another sort in his upcoming Hulk Hogan biopic. He’ll also star as an alien hunting secret agent in the upcoming Men In Black follow-up, tentatively titled Men in Black: International.
Hemsworth is one of a handful of male actors who we desperately wish was gay or bisexual and he has also been a decent ally. In 2017, the Australian-born actor came out in favor of marriage equality as his home nation prepared for a non-binding public vote on the issue.
At the time, he wrote, “Dear open minded, free speaking, laid back, life loving Aussies. Marriage is about love and commitment and, in a country based on equal citizenship, it should be available to everyone! Vote now for marriage equality.”
Hemsworth is comfortable cuddling with other men on camera. (In fact, he’s versatile, in that regard.) He also said in a 2012 interview with Out magazine that his mom considered him “the girl” of his family because he was more open with her than his two brothers were.
