If there is one advantage to being a man-mountain of muscles that can speak fluently in roid-grunts, it has to be that movies are always looking for a rather large individual in order to oppose their on-screen hero.
After finishing up on the RZA directorial debut Man With the Iron Fists opposite Russell Crowe, the massive performer is now scheduled to face off against Riddick in the upcoming and untitled sequel to the 2004 film.
It’s been a long road for the former WWE star so far, having played roles mostly in television series and straight to DVD films. Bautista joins other actors such as Jordi Molla, Katee Sackhoff and Karl Urban, as Riddick seeks revenge after being betrayed and left for dead on a hostile planet, seeking to save his home-world in the process.
