Your upcoming movie Axeman 2: Overkill - in a few words, what's it going to be about, and what can you tell us about your character in it?


It's going to be where 2 different groups of people converge in a cabin in the woods... by accident. One group is evangelists and the other group is bank robbers. My character is super strong, deranged and mentally unstable due to events in his childhood. He takes his anger out on these groups.


Now seriously, how much fun do you expect it to be to play the killer in a slasher movie - but to turn the question right around, what will you draw upon to bring your character to life?


I think it will be a ton of fun! I will draw upon my 13 years experience as a professional wrestler being a demonic, intimidating force.


To what extent can you identify with the film's slasher theme, and is that a genre you're at all fond of?


My first wrestling character was The Night Stalker, who was a slasher type and known as having a shady past which could have included murder. This is my first movie in this genre, but I feel that I will fit right in and my look, physique and intimidation factor fit the role perfectly.


How did you get hooked up with the project in the first place?


Director Joston Theney [Joston Theney interview - click here] contacted me through an agency in California. He hand-picked me out of over 2000 possible candidates because he knew of my wrestling history. He liked my athletic ability, power and 40 yard death stare! We hit it off immediately.


What can you tell us about your director Joston Theney [Joston Theney interview - click here], and what is your collaboration like so far?


I know he is an up-and-coming director. He is very intelligent, insightful and open-minded. So far our collaboration has been great! We both seem to be on the same page and thought process as far as the direction and character of the Axeman.


As far as I know, the film's still in pre-production as we speak - so how do you prepare for the shoot?


I prepare every day by being mindful of my diet and training at the gym to achieve the right look for the character. I spend time throwing the axe, hatchet and knives, and going over my lines from the script. This project has consumed me, in a good way.


Any future projects beyond Axeman 2: Overkill you'd like to share?


I have future projects in the works, but that is all I can tell you at this time.


Your initial claim to fame was of course being a wrestler - so what can you tell us about your wrestling career, and how did you get into it?


It's a very long story, but in short, it was my passion! I wanted it, I went after it and achieved my dream, through hard work and dedication. I paid my dues, but in the end it paid off. I traveled the world and I was 3 time World Champion.


What made you pick up acting eventually, and did you receive any formal training on the subject? And to what extent has your (on stage-)experience as a wrestler helped you as an actor?


I actually did some acting while performing as a professional wrestler, but due to being on the road more than 285 days per year, it made it difficult to pursue acting full time. I was actually chosen for a part in the movie Gladiator with Russell Crowe, but was unable to do it due to a full ACL tear I suffered in the ring. I have taken acting classes and trained with 2 of Arizona's top acting coaches. On stage experience has helped me by being able to walk out in front of 30,000 to 70,000 fans and not only perform without mistakes, but also entertain at the same time. I also trained in a Dojo for a year and a half and perfected my fighting skills and have been a stunt coordinator.

Actors (and indeed actresses) who inspire you?

Your favourite movies?


Pale Rider, Open Range, Point Break, Green Mile to name a few.


... and of course, films you really deplore?


Not so much movies, but reality television.


Your/your movie's website, Facebook, whatever else?

Anything else you are dying to mention and I have merely forgotten to ask?


It's exciting to have a lead role and I am looking forward to working with Joston on many more projects. My opinion is having the right person for the character. To me, believability is key. If the audience doesn't believe it and fear, then you have done something wrong.


Thanks for the interview!
