Wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne Johnson is hoping to become one of the biggest movie stars when he sets foot on the Hercules set by guzzling 5,000 calories a day to bulk up for the role.

The hulking Fast & Furious 6 star has been keeping fans up to date with his food intake on Twitter.com, revealing he’s gobbling seven meals a day in a bid to get massive as the great Greek.

His meals include a steak, four eggs and oatmeal for breakfast, and a protein supplement and 10 egg whites scrambled with onions, peppers and mushrooms for supper.

In between, he’ll also chow down on two whole chickens and two identical halibut and rice meals.
