The Early Role That Almost Ruined Jason Momoa's Career

Jason Momoa, like Dwayne Johnson before him, made a living on playing the big guy.

Momoa rose to fame as the leading actor in films like the 2011 remake of "Conan the Barbarian" thanks to his bulky muscles and endearing smile.

Arnold Schwarzenegger's acting career was launched by the original 1982 movie, and Momoa's portrayal of the character marked a significant entry point into the movie industry.

According to IMDb, he was previously only recognised for his television work.

Momoa's career has had many highs and lows. He had a remarkable run on "Game of Thrones" after "Conan."

Without Momoa, "GoT" had a meteoric rise in popularity after his exit from the series.

Collider claims that despite Momoa having already achieved superstardom at the time, the series ending still has a negative effect on fans years later.
