Chris Hemsworth has volunteered as a “human guinea pig” for a new Nat Geo health docuseries called Limitless.
The show will see Hemsworth undergo a variety of challenges to show how humans can live longer by discovering how to live a healthier and smarter life.
The Thor star will travel around the world and put himself through six physical and mental challenges with each technique tackling how to extend human life. This will include things like regenerating damage, shocking the body and supercharging memory according to Entertainment Weekly.
Hemsworth explained via video at the TCA press tour, “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.”
According to the Daily Mail, a statement for the show reads, “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.”
“In Limitless, Hemsworth will come face-to-face with his own mortality, testing ways to extend his healthy life in challenges that will stretch his physical and mental abilities.”
The show will be produced by Darren Aronofsky and Jane Root, who previously worked on another Nat Geo series, One Strange Rock.
Aronofsky said in his statement, “Limitless has the potential to improve people’s lives in simple, impactful ways, and we love Chris’ enthusiasm to be our tour guide.”
“I look forward to reteaming with Nat Geo, Jane, and our friends from One Strange Rock on this next adventure.”
