Kevin Nash is one of the most popular professional wrestlers of the mid to late 90’s and early 00’s. He was apart of many major storylines and was awesome. In his career he’s dabbled in films as Super Shredder in TMNT2 and as an evil guard in Adam Sandler’s The Longest Yard. Now it seems like we are (or at least I am) experiencing a renaissance of sorts for the man as he appeared in Rock of Ages as a bouncer, and will be in Magic Mike playing a stripper named Tarzan. In Magic Mike, which is going to be a hit, it seems like he’ll actually get something to do as he’s getting billed in the trailer.
Currently he’s in talks for a role in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. That’s a huge step up for the man. I am assuming that the role in question would either be a guard of some sort, but it makes more sense for him to be Brutus, one of the older victors of the Hunger Games who volunteers for the Quarter Quell. He’ll never be a megastar, but I’d like to see him keep getting roles like this where he gets to be a little more than just the guard in the background.
