‘Iowa boys’ Jason Momoa and Mike Wolfe share photos of picking motorcycles together in Nashville

Two celebrities with Iowa roots worked together on a new project that involved antique motorcycles and guitars, according to social media posts.

Aquaman Jason Momoa posted a photo with Mike Wolfe of “American Pickers” over the weekend on Instagram. The two picked motorcycles and guitars together in Nashville for an upcoming episode of “American Pickers”.

Momoa grew up in Norwalk before becoming a huge star, getting his big break in “Baywatch” in 1999. He went on to star on “Game of Thrones” as Khal Drogo, and later “Justice League” as Aquaman and his alter ego Arthur Curry. He appeared as the swimming superhero again in “Aquaman” in 2018. He recently wrapped production on “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,” which comes out this year.
