Former wrestler Dave Bautista celebrated his breakthrough in Hollywood with James Gunn’s “Guardians of the Galaxy.” As she now revealed, she had her pants full before her first audition.
Before James Gunn’s Marvel “Guardians of the Galaxy” opened in theaters, the messy crew of criminals and outcasts had only comic book connoisseurs on screen. The same was true of the acting skills of Drax actor Dave Bautista, who wanted to gain a foothold in Hollywood after his professional wrestling career in WWE. The muscular agent didn’t give him many chances before his first audition. The actor, who has now come to Hollywood, revealed this during the With pop culture in Denver.
“It was a nightmare, I was really scared. At the time I was very desperate because I had barely worked for three years and was almost broke after my wrestling career. Two weeks before my first audition for Guardians, I finally had an agent. “ But that gave the actor little hope of landing the role, as Bautista continues: “He said, ‘I really had to fight to get you this audition. They didn’t really want you because they don’t want professional wrestlers. So don’t set your hopes too high. ‘
So Bautista went to her first audition with correspondingly low expectations. It reportedly turned out so well in the end that he was invited on another date with director James Gunn the next day. Of course, we know what happened to him: In the meantime, he was not only allowed to play the lovable Trotting Drax in two “Guardians” movies, but he also appeared in “Avengers 3: Infinity War” and “Avengers 4: Endgame.” The role also opened the doors to many other projects. On August 22, for example, he will appear in the action comedy “Stuber,” in which he is a tough cop with a good-natured Uber driver (Kumail Nanjiani) on the hunt for an icy killer. He is also currently in front of the camera in Denis Villeneuve’s film “Dune”.
