Guess whether he's a heel or a face.

Position Staff In Brief
144/159 David Mumpower Kane does nothing different than his wrestling schtick. The movie comes across as a student film with a C- grade rather than a major studio release.

Digg Button  
After establishing itself as the dominant force in wrestling entertainment, absorbing any comers to the scene with ruthlessness and aplomb, Vince McMahon's WWE has expanded to other venues. Videogames and toys have long been the natural tie-ins for the franchise, but with the popularity of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, the time came when the McMahon family recognized that they could potentially capitalize on some of their talent as they became involved in movie productions. After all, wrestlers like Jesse Ventura, Rowdy Roddy Piper and Hulk Hogan had found some degree of success in this avenue, so why would the WWE not capture a piece of the pie for themselves?

They started out with production company credits on The Rundown and Walking Tall, both of which starred The Rock. Since Mr. Johnson outgrew them to some degree since he's an able crossover performer, the WWE realized that they would need to create some starring roles for some of their other featured wrestlers. One such film is The Marine, which will star current top-of-the-line guy John Cena. There are also projects in the line for Stone Cold Steve Austin (who was in 2005's The Longest Yard) and bad guy Triple H (who had a goofy role in Blade: Trinity).

See No Evil will also fall under the WWE Films umbrella, and stars the gigantic and terrifying Kane (aka Glen Jacobs) in, appropriately, a horror film. He stars as a seven foot tall, 400 pound psychopath who has a steel plate screwed into his head and super-sharp fingernails that are used to pluck his victims eyes from their sockets. He keeps to himself, though, tucked away in a reclusive hotel where he can be alone with his nightmares. When eight petty criminals show up along with the cop who put a bullet in our villain's head, mayhem breaks out and he goes on...a spree. (Kim Hollis/BOP)
