Dave Bautista Is the Greatest Wrestler-Turned-Actor Ever
Rian Johnson, the director of Glass Onion, recently spoke to The Atlantic and spoke about Dave Bautista’s performance in this critically acclaimed movie.
“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.”
When asked if Bautista was the greatest wrestler turned actor Rian commented “I absolutely 100 percent agree. 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.”
