Could it be true that as the great action film star Arnold Schwarzenegger is showing signs of aging that Hollywood has found a younger version of the mega star? From all appearances, we’d say so. While we all know that there will only be one Arnold, there is a newcomer on the scene who could assume a similar role and forge his own way to superstardom. His name is Calum Von Moger. He’s already built an impressive fan base but one look at him is all you need to know to understand why. Here are five things that you didn’t know about the new star of “Generation Iron 2” and “Bigger” in which he plays the role of the young Arnold Schwarzenegger.

1. Calum Von Moger is Australian

With a name like Von Moger there has been speculation that the new and rising star was from the same country as Arnold Schwarzenegger, but the heavily ripped actor is of Dutch and Austrian ancestry, transplanted to the land down under. He was born in Victoria, Australia on June 9th of 1990 and he doesn’t go by a nickname as many professional celebrities do. He was born Calum Von Moger. He was raised on a farm by his parents along with five siblings. He is currently 27 years old.

2. Prior to acting he was a sports professional

Calum is a world class bodybuilder and has the trophies to prove it. He came in first place at the NABBA Junior International Championships in Melbourne, Australia in May of 2011 at the age of 21.

3. His father was gravely injured

Being raised on a farm with a moderately large family, Calum is close to his parents and siblings. Although he has enjoyed his share of high moments, there have also been some very low times as well. His father was severely injured in a road accident in 2007 that left his paralyzed as a result. Calum had moved to Geelong at the age of 14 where he began his bodybuilding career. He later moved to Los Angeles, California in October of 2014.
