WWE Superstar Kane, who is starring in the upcoming film See No Evil 2, recently sat down with DreadCentral.com to talk about his role as Jacob Goodnight.
Kane talked about waiting so long for a sequel, what working with the crew was like, how his WWE character helped him prepare, and more. You can read some excerpts from the interview below:
Kane On See No Evil 2, And Making A Sequel:
“I was sort of shocked to get the call really because the first movie had been a commercial success with WWE Studios’ debut film, and I thought, ‘Okay, we’re going to do a sequel pretty quickly,’ and it didn’t happen for, like, several years,” Glenn Jacobs, better known as Kane, tells us. “So, my phone rang one day and I was like, ‘Really? Okay. Isn’t it six years late?’ I was really surprised to get the call after having all that time pass. I didn’t think we’d do another one.”
Kane On His Relationship With The Directors (The Soska Sisters):
“They were awesome. They bring so much excitement and so much enthusiasm to the set. We had fifteen shooting days, which is pressure packed. No matter how hard you try, there’s going to be points you feel you’ve fallen behind schedule. Everybody was freaking out except the twins. I was just so impressed by them. Their knowledge and their skill is amazing; they helped me a lot as far as my role. I can’t speak highly enough of their talent.”
Kane On How WWE Prepared Him For This Role:
“I think people are going to be very surprised in this movie as far as what Jacob does with some of the scenes. You actually have your psychopathic killer acting, which is something you don’t see that often. I wore a mask for years and the disadvantage of that is, as human beings, we portray most emotions with our face and I had to do it with body language. Really, the essence of the WWE is we’re trying to elicit an emotional reaction from the crowd just like you are in a movie. It’s the same deal. I understood how you get those emotions out of people. If you can’t have your number one asset, and you can do it with your number two asset, once you get your number one asset, you’re going to be pretty good at it.”
