While Bill Goldberg's role in the recent box office disaster, Looney Tunes: BIA, didn't earn him the credentials The Rock received for his role in The Rundown, Goldberg still has another movie on tap.
He's set to star as a killer, dressed as Santa Claus, in the upcoming 'Santa's Sleigh', which is set to begin filming in late-January. Filming will take place in Edmonton, Alberta on a relatively low budget.
Goldberg joked to WWE.com that it's going to be great to have a 280-pound Jewish guy dressed as Santa.
Backing the film is Rush Hour director Brett Ratner. There is also talk of Edward Norton having a cameo in the film.
Goldberg told WWE.com that one possibility for a costar is his good friend Dennis Haskins, of Saved By The Bell fame.
It is not expected that the movie will interefere with his wrestling schedule.
Wow...how appealing. A bad Jewish actor plays Santa Claus in a movie co-starring Mr. Belding! Sounds like Wrestlecrap in the making, doesn't it?
Bad Santa, this ain't.
Admit it. You laughed too when you found out Brock was feuding with Sparky Plugg.
Wasn't "Santa's Sleigh" the slasher movie in Ernest Saves Christmas?
Let's put this in the plainest terms possible: Darryl Strawberry has no business instructing anybody about anything. He has never done a thing in his life to warrant a position of guidance. Not on the field. Not off the field.-- David Vescey, si.com
It sounds more like a remake of a good little B-movie made in 79 or 80 that's titled either "Christmas Evil" or "You Better Watch Out" (depending on the country and the video box, but it's been titled both).
But the good thing about the character is that for most part he didn't say much in the movie...he just looked ominous and killed a lot of people in short order without having to talk. Which as we all know is PERFECT for Goldberg. :)
Now not that I wish any badness of my friend the DrOpMeister, I gotta say I was chuckling a little last night. We have ye olde satellite dish and we were watching the Fox News 5 out of New York last night. Man, you'd have thought it was armegeddon!
