O'Hurn will play a character named "Horse" in the upcoming "Boo! A Madea Halloween." The site lists a few past credits - “The Experience,” “Amphibious” and “Laguna Rising” - although they are all listed as "in development."

The towering hunk is mostly known for standing around looking huge and hot. Notes BuzzFeed in a piece titled "The Super Charmed Life of Instagram's Hottest Guy":  "Brock O’Hurn is ... 6’7”, 250 pounds, tan, muscular, blue-eyed, with a light-brown, tousled mane that, when not grazing his often shirtless chest, sits in a perfectly messy topknot."

But he struck a humble chord in his Instagram post announcing the Tyler Perry movie:

“Excited to shoot my first feature film! And even more thankful to be doing it with the one and only Tyler Perry!

There are so many incredible people involved with this film and we're out here having an amazing time!! The first of many! Who's going to be watching Tyler, Bradley Martyn and me on the Big Screen this year?!”
