Chris Hemsworth Will Be a 'Human Guinea Pig' on New Docu-Series for NatGeo

Chris Hemsworth is teaming up with National Geographic for the upcoming series Limitless, in which he will become a “human guinea pig” in the name of science.

The 36-year-old Aussie actor aims “to discover how to live healthier, smarter and longer lives” while transforming “himself by training for six extraordinary challenges, showing how to fight aging at every stage of life.”

Deadline reports: “Each episode will tackle a different way we can live better for longer: regenerating damage, maximizing strength, building resilience, shocking the body, supercharging memory and confronting mortality. Hemsworth will meet leading longevity scientists who believe that the key to staying young lies in rooting out and reversing the ravages of time before they take hold, and learn secrets from superhumans who demonstrate the mind-blowing extent of human potential.”

Chris said in a statement: “Basically, I was somehow convinced to volunteer myself as a human guinea pig and endure a series of mental and physical challenges across the globe, all for the sake of science. We’re hoping to shed some light on new ideas and emerging science with the focus on extending a healthy life span. Production starts soon, so wish me luck.”

The news was announced at the TCA Winter Press Tour on Friday (January 17).
