- Sheamus continues to do the media rounds to promote his role as Rocksteady in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, which released yesterday. In an interview with Digital Spy, Sheamus was asked if he plans to follow in the footsteps of The Rock and Batista.
"They've carried the torch and led the way," Sheamus said. "They've shown that it can be done. When you're in a WWE ring and you do a live show in front of millions of people around the world there's no second takes, there's no cuts, it's happening as you speak, it's out there. It's going right to the live camera. That's definitely helped prepare me, and I'm sure helped prepare The Rock and Batista as well for their careers in movies. They definitely compliment each other."
Sheamus also discussed wanting to play Spider-Man villain Venom, the first time he met Michael Bay and more. You can read the full interview by clicking here.
