Alan Ritchson heats up the December issue of Da Man.
The Catching Fire actor discusses how he got his Hunger Games role, how he keeps in shape and on his acting career so far.
On his audition for The Hunger Games:
“I initially auditioned for the role of Finnick. I felt a connection to this character. I understood him and I auditioned for this role for Deb Zane, who was the casting director of the movie. When I didn’t hear back from her, I did what I wouldn’t recommend other actors to do: I wrote her a letter. A couple of months later, I got a call from Deb, offering the role of Gloss. It was interesting to me how that came about.”
On his acting career:
“It’s been an interesting journey, my road has been one of seeing a door open and presenting opportunities that I’ve never expected. I could’ve gone to a music school anywhere in the country because I had a full music scholarship for singing. I started to go to college and I left because I didn’t feel fulfilled. I felt like I wasn’t challenged creatively. When I dropped out, I was offered a modeling contract, and it was just an opportunity that I took. I pursued it for a few years and it ended up taking me to L.A., where I saw that these models were also doing other things: commercials or auditioning for TV. Within the first three weeks, I booked three jobs. Maybe it was meant to be, and all the stars were aligned.”
On his workout regime:
“I’d be lying if I say genetics don’t play some part of that, but at the same time, I think people take for granted how hard it is to achieve any kind of success. I do work really hard, I work out five days a week and I’m very disciplined about my regimen. I focus on cardio; it’s the foundation of my workout. The best of me is poured into that and the rest of it goes into resistance training. If anyone wants to get ripped, I recommend sprint training.”
