No really, check out aintitcoolnews.com. Apparently the comparison is as obvious as we all thought. I pray that this happens.

I don't think the writer had a clue that Paul Michael Levesque=Triple H.

Nothing against the Rock, but him being Prince Adam/He-Man is about as believable as Van Damme being Guile in Street Fighter: The Movie.

I totally agree with this. I think The Rock rules, but he just doesn't come off as the He-Man/Prince Adam type. It has nothing to do whatsoever with his appearance, it has to do with the vibe he exudes.

As far as the case with Triple H, I had the chance to see his appearance on Conan O'Brian recently, and I was genuinely surprised. He came across very well and seemed to be a really amiable guy. The audience also seemed to be really into the interview and Trips didn't come across like a stiff. This could translate well on the big screen.

Plus, if he *DID* get the role of He-Man, it would be a great opportunity for him to demonstrate diverse acting abilities. We know he can be the intense ultra-evil guy with no compassion and the arrogant jerk. The roles he's played in WWE over the years demonstrate that. But, in my opinion, he ALSO has a gift of great comic timing. His skits with Mick Foley in 2000 were a great example of that. If he could show the ability to do drama, play the action hero, and use some of his untapped comedy skills in the Prince Adam alter-ego role, Triple H would be an EXCELLENT He-Man.

No, see we used to joke about how HHH was He-Man and it was funny but not really and... Never mind.

Ahhh. I haven't seen that HHH/He-Man comparison for quite a while now. It still brings a good laugh!

Just wanted to let you all know that I'm not entirely out of the loop... at least I hope not. :)
