Now Playing: Halo Series World Premiere | Game Awards 2021

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly recently, Schreiber said it was a "herculean task" to play Master Chief, in part because of his intense workout schedule to get shredded to play the famous Xbox hero.

"It's a huge job, from setting the tone on set down to the grueling task of waking up at the crack of dawn to work out, then go to shoot, and go home to work out some more. Nothing about it is easy, and I wouldn't want it to be," he said.

Schreiber said the Halo series will be a "classic hero's journey" that will "crack the veneer" of Master Chief. "It takes place very much in the universe that the video games created, but it's a TV show. We get to expand that universe and create stories in it. There's going to be some new characters that are introduced, there's going to be a lot of familiar characters that everyone will know from the game," he said.
