Dave Bautista has been urged to ''exploit'' his wrestling fame to get more starring roles in Hollywood following the success of his movie 'Guardians of the Galaxy', according to WWE star Paul Heyman.
Dave Bautista should ''exploit'' his wrestling fame to get more starring roles in Hollywood, according to WWE star Paul Heyman.
The manager is thrilled that Dave's movie 'Guardians of the Galaxy' has performed so well across the globe and thinks Dave - who plays Drax the Destroyer in the film and competes in WWE under the moniker 'The Animal' Batista - should capitalise on his success
When asked what he thought of wrestlers who have made the switch to Hollywood, Paul exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''I mean, Bautista may be in the number one blockbuster of the summer so I can't see how that hurts one's ability to exploit his own name.''
The 47-year-old WWE veteran - who has just released his own behind-the-scenes DVD 'Ladies and Gentlemen, My Name is Paul Heyman' - also had a lot of praise for DWAYNE 'THE ROCK' JOHNSON, who plays the title character in 'Hercules' and has previously starred in the 'Fast & Furious' film series as well as many other movies.
Paul shared: ''As for The Rock; The Rock was the highest grossing movie star of 2013 so it's very hard to knock his decision to do the slate of movies that he has picked.
''I have seen several of The Rock's films and I look forward to seeing 'Guardians of the Galaxy', I've not seen it yet. They had a huge premiere when I was in California the other week but I had a chance to fly home a day early so I took advantage of that opportunity. I have seen 'Hercules' and I admired Irina Shayk's performance.''
Paul is getting ready to be in the corner of his client Brock Lesnar when he challenges WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena at 'SummerSlam', which can be seen live on Sunday night (17.08.14) on Sky Sports Box Office.
