Muscle Monday : Anthony Nese

No introduction needed.

With Caleb Konley

Friday, March 25, 2016


It's no surprise that many wrestlers become actors -- Dwayne Johnson, John Cena, Bill Goldberg, The Big Show, just to name a few -- because professional wrestling, and I say this with all due respect, is acting. One wrestler I wasn't expecting to add "actor" to his resume is Marco Corleone who is perhaps better known to us as former WWE Superstar Mark Jindrak. Jindrak/Corleone moved to Mexico several years ago and became not just one of that country's top lucha stars, but a bona fide celebrity as well. Just last week, I wrapped dubbing work on a 177-episode Mexican telenovela called Mi Corazon Es Tuyo (My Heart Is Yours) which featured Corleone in a small but recurring role. Although I was not the voice actor who dubbed him (he speaks Spanish very well, but his American accent is still quite heavy), I did dub the actor who was in every scene with him so I got the chance to watch Corleone as an actor. My verdict: he has the whole "tough guy" act down pat, but his lighter, funnier side needs work. Still, he is quite an imposing figure to watch and apparently, the fans love him because he's appeared in at least a couple of other telenovelas. (Aside from the wrestlers mentioned above, tell us which other wrestlers you've seen in movies/television shows?)
