Kumail Nanjiani is currently busy shooting the upcoming Star Wars miniseries, Obi-Wan Kenobi, which reunites stars Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader, respectively.

But on Memorial Day Monday, the comedian-turned-actor was able to take a break from the stress of being on set and enjoy some downtime with his wife Emily V. Gordon.

The couple was spotted taking a leisurely stroll in Los Angeles, which included a stop to get a few cups of coffee.

Nanjiani’s large and muscular physique left little doubt that he kept up with the intense workouts he began as part of his body transformation for his role in the Marvel movie Eternals.

The Silicon Valley star, 43, showed off his bulging biceps and chest in a fitted baby blue t-shirt paired with matching shorts and sneakers.

He rounded out his athletic ensemble with an Oakland A baseball cap over his short black hair.

The sleeveless number was paired with a pair of white sneakers, dark sunglasses and her dirty blonde locks, styled long and straight with a center parting.

The couple, who will be celebrating their 14th wedding anniversary in July, seemed to be chatting casually as they walked to and from the coffee shop.

The afternoon outing comes a week after the release of the first full trailer and poster for the Marvel Entertainment movie, Eternals.

It was while preparing to play Kingo, an ego-swollen, muscular alien among men, that Nanjiani began his muscular body transformation. With the role, the Pakistani-born star becomes the first South Asian superhero in a Marvel film.

“I don’t want to be the scruffy brown guy – I want to look like someone who can deal with Thor and Captain America,” he remarked to himself in his head, as reported by Men’s health.

Eternals also stars Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Lia McHugh, Brian Tyree Henry, Lauren Ridloff, Barry Keoghan, Don Lee, Gil Birmingham, Harish Patel, Kit Harington, Salma Hayek and Angelina Jolie.

The shoot for Obi-Wan Kenobi only started earlier in May. Ten years after Revenge Of The Sith (2005), all six episodes were written by Joby Harold and directed by Deborah Chow.

Along with Nanjiani, McGregor and Christensen, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Moses Ingram, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell, Benny Safdie and Maya Erskine star in the miniseries.

Production was set to begin in July 2020, but was suspended indefinitely in January 2020 due to producer Lucasfilm’s dissatisfaction with the scripts.

Harold was hired to rewrite the series in April 2020 and eventually shooting started about two weeks ago.
