Bully Ray - Bully Ray: I could be new James Gandolfini

TNA Superstar Bully Ray wants to become an actor and thinks he can be the new James Gandolfini.

The wrestler has started to branch into other areas of entertainment and thinks he would be a good fit for some of the roles the late actor took on during his illustrious career before his death last June, such as his most famous part as Mafia boss Tony Soprano in TV series 'The Sopranos'.

Bully told BANG Showbiz: ''I'm looking into films and other things right now ... I am looking to branch my career out a little bit more into acting ... I think I fit certain roles, I'll use as an example a guy like James Gandolfini in 'The Sopranos'. I think that type of role I could pull off real well, just with my natural personality.''

Former TNA World Heavyweight Champion Bully - who comes from Queens, New York, while James was a native of Westwood, New Jersey - has just finished filming a guest part in Nickelodeon sitcom 'See Dad Run'.

Although the 42-year-old grappler is remaining tight-lipped on his part, he was thrilled to get to work with lead actor Scott Baio, 'Pretty Woman' director Garry Marshall and his filmmaker son Scott Marshall on the comedy series.

Bully - who can be seen competing with the other stars of TNA every week on 'IMPACT Wrestling' every week on Challenge TV in the UK and Spike in the US - revealed: ''I just did a television show for Nickelodeon. The show is called 'See Dad Run' and it stars Scott Baio and it's on nick@nite. So I did an episode with him and it went really well and I had an extremely positive experience out there in Hollywood, I was there about a week working at Paramount Studios, I got to work with Scott Marshall and Garry Marshall, and I got to work on the same set as 'Happy Days'. It was a tremendously positive experience.''
