WWE Superstar Hornswoggle recently talked to MoviePilot about his new film, Leprechaun: Origins, which is in limited theater release starting today.

Hornswoggle talks about a number of parts of the film making process, including getting into makeup, finding his character compared to who he is in WWE, and much more. You can read a few excerpts below:

How different was creating a movie character from creating a wrestling persona?

I don’t know. For film, I think it’s harder because you’re not getting that instant gratification that you would in WWE. Punch a guy in the face in WWE, people are going to cheer. Here, you punch a guy in the face, eight seconds later, “Cut, all right, let’s go again.” Okay, was that good? Was that bad? What do I need to change? You don’t know if it was good, so it’s very different. I think filmmaking is a lot harder than WWE at times.

How involved was the makeup for Leprechaun: Origins?

Two and a half hours twice a day. Two and a half hours in, hour to get out, lunch. Two and a half hours in, hour out. By day three I was cussing, just sick of it. I don’t know why I was having a bad day. I was just having a bad day. I was so mad at everything, but now seeing the final product, I would’ve sat there for five hours. It is so good. The creature turned out so awesome, the prosthetics and the makeup. It was amazing.

Leprechaun: Origins opens in limited theater release today, and comes to digital and video-on-demand services beginning August 26th.
