Played by Tyler Mane. As seen in: Halloween (2007)
The supernatural slasher Michael Myers has a big mask to fill, but that wasn’t so daunting for the 6’8”, 240-pound Mane, who starred in the 2007 Halloween remake. Director Rob Zombie wanted his knife-wielding baddie to be “a little bit more physical, intense, and intimidating,” Mane told Muscle&Fitness.
Ironically, that required the actor to slim down. A former pro wrestler, Mane changed his training from heavy lifting to circuits—performing one exercise after another in a row without rest. “I got my cardio while I was working out,” he says. “I don’t pick up any weight that is heavier than 20-25 pounds and I’m constantly going for 45-90 minutes, training my entire body, going non-stop.”
Just like Myers.
