Wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne Johnson is hoping to become one of the biggest movie stars when he sets foot on the Hercules set by guzzling 5,000 calories a day to bulk up for the role.

The hulking Fast & Furious 6 star has been keeping fans up to date with his food intake on Twitter.com, revealing he’s gobbling seven meals a day in a bid to get massive as the great Greek.

His meals include a steak, four eggs and oatmeal for breakfast, and a protein supplement and 10 egg whites scrambled with onions, peppers and mushrooms for supper.

In between, he’ll also chow down on two whole chickens and two identical halibut and rice meals.

Durbin: Sun-Times Reporter’s Departure “Worrisome”

Republican state Sen., Jim Oberweis, right, offers to give Democratic U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, more paper after Durbin joked about only getting one page of paper for notes before their first of two televised debates prior to the Nov. 4 election Wednesday, Oct. 22, 2014, in Chicago. Oberweis, a dairy entrepreneur from Sugar Grove, has acknowledged it will take a big GOP year to unseat Durbin, the second-ranking Democrat in the U.S. Senate who's represented Illinois on Capitol Hill for more than three decades.

Bruce Rauner’s campaign is being accused of bullying the Chicago Sun-Times, and U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) says that should be a troubling sign to voters.
