How did you end up getting the role of Rocksteady?
“I ended up getting a call from WWE letting me know about the auditions. I didn’t hear anything for a while and I just thought, “It’s such a massive role, I’ll be amazed if I get it,” but I had to give it a go. My expectations weren’t too high, but I eventually met with one of the producers, talked about my desire for the role and the plan around it, and then I was offered the role.”
So chances are we’ll be seeing you in the movies a lot more?
“Of course! Who wouldn’t want to be involved in a movie? It was an unbelievable experience and something we dream about as kids. It’s really a dream come true being a WWE Superstar and being in “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.” These are just larger-than-life franchises and great to be a part of.”
Do you think Sheamus could transition into getting more film roles in Hollywood?
