At one point, they were going to make a movie about The Genetic Jackhammer (Vince McMahon), to star Bradley Cooper as the WWF owner. That didn’t pan out, possibly because Cooper was deemed not manly enough, possibly not.
Now though, they’re making a TV show.
Filmmakers Studio has issued a casting call for a new scripted TV show on the life and career of WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon.
“No Chance: The Vince McMahon Story and The Rise of the New Wrestling World Order” is the working title for the project. Joseph Krueger is the director.
Anyway, since we’re talking about who could make a good Vince McMahon, I think if Cooper turns it down, there would be no better than Holt McCallany. Same size, definitely capable of ‘amping it up’ with a deranged/intense Irish lunacy.
McCallany’s cameo/bit role was funny in Bullet to the Head.
