Kumail Nanjiani doesn't look like that anymore. Full disclosure, I'm a big fan of Pakistani-American actor Kumail Nanjiani. I think he's a very good looking man and I think he's hilarious.I loved him in "Silicon Valley" and I enjoyed his film "The Big Sick," and I even enjoyed his episode of "The Twilight Zone." Nothing, though, I mean NOTHING, could have prepared me for what I saw yesterday as I was scrolling through Instagram (because I follow him on the 'Gram, obviously). Kumail Nanjiani is RIPPED!

He. Looks. Amazing. I need a moment.

In his Instagram post, Nanjiani says he never thought he'd be posting a "thirsty shirtless" but he's worked hard over the past year and wanted to show off. Nanjiani is training for his upcoming movie "The Eternals" which also stars Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Lauren Ridloff, Brian Tyree Henry, Salma Hayek, Lia McHugh, Don Lee, Barry Keoghan, Gemma Chan and Kit Harington. Nanjiani also thanked and credited Marvel Studios for paying for the best trainers and nutritionists, which he understands that not many people can afford that luxury, so don't feel so bad.

I, too, would like to thank Marvel for this gift. "The Eternals" is set to be released on November 6, 2020 and I cannot wait to see Nanjiani in it, it helps ease the sting that Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans are no longer in the MCU.

One more time, just for fun.
