He's one of the most recognizable people on the planet, with an accent that has inspired a million imitations, but with a little bit of facial hair, Arnold Schwarzenegger was able to roam around a Venice, Calif., Gold's Gym largely undetected. Disguised as the innocuous Howard Kleiner, a trainer with a penchant for offering heavily-accented fitness advice, Schwarzenegger was filmed roaming around the gym offering the sort of wisdom one would expect from the former governor of California: “Remember, 75% of the body is water.

In the tradition of "Swingers" and "Good Will Hunting," "Dumbbells" originates from a pair of enterprising actors who have dabbled in screenwriting to generate parts for themselves. Brian Drolet and Hoyt Richards drew on their former lives as an MTV personality (Drolet) and fashion model (Richards) to write the story of an ex-jock languishing as a North Hollywood gym attendant after his promising career and superficial girlfriend both slipped from his grip. Drolet undertakes the role of the sweet-natured sad sack, while Richards plays an ex-model who assumes ownership of the gym and schemes to turn it into a set for a reality series.
