As anyone with even a passing knowledge of Game of Thrones Season 1 knows, Jason Momoa had plenty to work with to prepare for his role as a DC Comics superhero. It’s not like being Aquaman required anything resembling a physical makeover for the man.

But while stuck in Australia’s Gold Coast with nothing to do but film a movie in which he stars (I know, torture), Momoa doesn’t make fitness his only pastime. On the Aquaman set, he’s picking up bass guitar and drums to keep his mind busy. “There’s a bunch of stuff I want to learn. Instead of waiting around on set all day, I’d rather be learning something cool,” he explained. He continued: “There’s too much shit I want to do.”
By the way, it’s an inverted rock wall.
