SD! Star’s Big Movie Audition, Stone Cold At Fontana Race

Nick Paglino

SlashFilm.com has posted following article: "Pro wrestler Shad Gaspard (part of the WWE tag-team Cryme Tyme) revealed over the weekend that he had auditioned for the role of Ukafa, the main villain in Marcus Nispel’s upcoming remake of Conan the Barbarian.

Gaspard is 29-years-old, 6′7 feet tall and weighs 285 lbs, so he definitely is big enough for the role… but is he a good actor? Aside from The Rock and a couple others, pro restlers are notoriously bad in the feature film arena. Shad hasn’t appeared in any feature films as of yet, but while attending Georgia Perimeter College, he took Film classes, including scene and improv study."

Thanks to Koko Nalby for sending this in:

I just came from the Sprint Cup Race at Fontana (2/21) and Stone Cold Steve Austin was there as the honorary Grand Marshall. He did a Q and A at the Dale Earnheart Experience tent to promote his hosting of Raw in March. During the race, they also did an on-air interview with him.
