A number of days ago, Hulk Hogan made some comments to TMZ in an off hand manner that a movie was being made about his life and he wanted his son, Nick, to play him in said film, a biography. We never picked up the story because, well, Hogan was clearly blowing off the silly questions the photog was tossing his way.
Well, the story picked up some mainstream attention, enough so that Hogan has been asked to follow up and clarify his comments. He did just that in an interview with The Cape Breton Post in Canada (via PW Insider):
"It's not really true. It's a TMZ headline.... What happened was, I was going through LaGuardia Airport ... this guy asked me a bunch of dumb questions for TMZ and he goes, 'Eh, when are they going to do a bio about your life?' And I said, 'It's already in development.' So now everybody's rambling like it's a feature film already. But the truth is ... two kids that are writers in L.A., hot young writers, they did a four-page treatment and I'm telling you they nailed it - they nailed it like they were living in my shoes - and I gave them the green light to go ahead and write the first pass. But that's all it is."
That sounds an awful lot like Hogan being Hogan, exaggerating something someone passed along to him that will likely never see the light of day.
So, a normal day in the life.
By the way, he wouldn't want his son Nick to play him. He has someone else in mind for that role:
"I said (Nick would) be perfect for it but I think we need a serious, serious actor that knows what he's doing. You know who I thought would be good? That guy that did that action movie, 'Thor'."
He's referring to Chris Hemsworth, of course. This guy.
Assuming a Hogan biography was made in the manner in which he speaks, would any of you Cagesiders bother to take some time out of your day to watch it? And would Hemsworth be the right guy to play Hulk?
