• Vince McMahon Prevented Kevin Nash From Taking A Role In Popular Hollywood Movie

On the latest episode of his weekly ‘Kliq This’ podcast, WWF Legend Kevin Nash revealed that he was offered the role of Eager Beaver’s head security Shad in the 1996 Hollywood Blockbuster ‘Striptease’, with famous actors Burt Reynolds & Demi Moore as the main characters.

According to Nash, Vince McMahon didn’t want to lose him to Hollywood for the time of the filming, so the WWF promoter prevented him from taking the job and the role was given to Ving Rhames, whom many movie fans will also remember from Pulp Fiction and Mission Impossible 1-6.

Here’s what “Big Daddy Cool” Diesel said:

“I read for the movie Striptease and I nailed it. I found out later on that they were very interested in using me, and Vince said ‘No way, you’re not taking him for that long’.

So Ving Rhames got the part. He killed it.”

Ironically, Nash eventually ended up playing a role in another striptease-themed movie many years later, when he portrayed Tarzan in ‘Magic Mike’ 1 & 2.
