Chris Hemsworth, Rush

E! Entertainment

Chris Hemsworth's next role is finally here!

The actor is set to star in the action-packed biography of Formula 1 champion driver Niki Lauda dubbed Rush. Hemsworth was on hand at E3 to introduce his latest project and E! News obtained an exclusive clip from the upcoming flick.

Starring alongside Olivia Wilde, who plays his wife, the Aussie native gears up his driving suit for the Ron Howard-directed movie.

Hemsworth plays Lauda's longtime rival, James Hunt, who battles the driving legend a mere weeks after a massive car accident in 1976.

Notice something? That would be Hemsworth's dramatic weight loss since starring in both Thor and The Avengers.

He reportedly slimmed down to 175 pounds after weighing in at over 230 for the Marvel Comics films.

He still looks good to us!
