On Grantland...

Kevin Nash's Next Angle: The controversial wrestling star has made a fortune in the ring and is making headway in Hollywood. So why can't he sleep at night?

I think that's a nice profile. Nash does think a lot of himself. But here, he comes across more as super-confident than arrogant. And he's a nice mix of those guys who worship rasslin, like Foley, and guys who hate it, like Warrior.

And his idea of how to break into movies is interesting, for sure. It's gotta be tough for a guy his size to do much beyond variations of Bouncer and Tough Guy. But he was quite good in his smallish part in Magic Mike -- and actually the only good thing, beyond the tits, in the abysmal Dead or Alive. The guy's watchable, if he can get hooked up with decent scripts and directors.

The description of the IWC stings a bit, but it's accurate.

He's old and washed up. He'll blow through his money before he's 60.

I did a piece on Cageside Seats about: Grantland reveals why Kevin Nash wants another run in WWE

Got to love Hulk Hogan admitting that he's played Dixie Carter with Nash's help like a fiddle while still working for her company. :-)

I thought Nash was just as bad as everyone else in that movie, which I suppose is a compliment of sorts.

Well, he was basically playing Hogan, and it amused me. Still, it's quite possibly the worst movie I have ever seen at the theater (Up there with Speed 2, anyway), so all he had to do to stand out was deliver one or two lines decently.

Ah, I only saw it on cable.

Worst film I've ever paid to see was probably Attack of the Clones - which I only sat through because my sister insisted on seeing it.
