• Batista Is The Greatest Wrestler-To-Actor Ever, Says Rian Johnson
Former WWE Champion Batista is a part of the new Netflix movie “Glass Onion”.
While talking about this movie during an interview with The Atlantic, filmmaker Rian Johnson had big praise for “The Animal”.
Below is what Rian said:
“Dave Bautista (surprised me the most). When I was writing (his character, a men’s-rights streamer named Duke Cody), I was picturing a scrawny dude who’s trying to overcompensate.
When Bautista was brought up, I was instantly so smitten by the idea. I’ve been a very big fan of his dramatic chops as an actor.
I absolutely 100 percent agree (that Batista is low-key the greatest wrestler-to-actor ever). And I think somebody like (Paul Thomas Anderson) is going to give him a real part and is gonna look like a genius.
As a person, Bautista is genuinely, immediately vulnerable when you meet him, and that’s what I was excited about. This is someone who has the physical trappings of someone who would play it big, but he actually brings sensitivity to the role.”
Batista is scheduled to get inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame soon, as his induction got postponed after he couldn’t attend the ceremony in 2021.
