Eric Cohen of About.com has an interview up with WWE star Ted DiBiase Jr. at this link where he talks about the release of “The Marine 2” on DVD and Blu-ray this week and discusses in detail how he got the role in the movie.
“It was thrown in my lap almost. I was at a RAW and one of the guys came up to me and said ?Hey, we want you to come and read for a movie. Come out a day early next week and read for the movie.? I didn’t think much about it but I went the next week. Right before I went in there, I was sitting and thinking that it would be really cool to be in a movie. I was just there thinking that they wanted to just take a look at me and that I had no chance at all. I was only six months into my career. I went in there and gave it my best shot. After I was done, they said ?Wow. How long have you been acting?? I looked down at my watch and then said ?About 15 minutes.? And that was it. They called me about a week later and told me I had the part. It was off to Thailand after that.”
