Jason Momoa: 'I'm Not That Good Of An Actor'
Conan the Barbarian is a literary legend from author Robert E. Howard, but he was made famous in the movies by Arnold Schwarzenegger. The new Conan the Barbarian movie reboots the legend, with Jason Momoa in the title role. You may know him as Khal Drogo from HBO’s Game of Thrones, but Momoa joked he had no problem separating his sword and sandal warrior characters.

“No, because I'm not that good of an actor,” Momoa said. “I don't get stuck. It's not like, 'You're not Drogo! You can't go around killing people!' I did Conan first. Game of Thrones got me Conan, but I shot Conan first. Then ...

Ripped action man Jason Momoa had to give up his love for beer as he prepared to revamp Arnold Schwarzenegger's "Conan The Barbarian" character to get into shape.

The actor admits he loves to unwind with a six-pack but he had to switch to whiskey while he was getting into shape for the new blockbuster.

And his Conan diet left a lot to be desired: "I had to eat boiled chicken breast every t...

If you missed my interview last week, with Jesse Eisenberg and Nick Swardson for the action comedy “30 Minutes or Less,” definitely check it out.
