"Kevin James asked me to be in the movie. He sent me over a script, and I said, 'Bro. I appreciate you thinking of me. I don't know if you've ever seen my Bud Light commercial, but if you have, you would understand why I do not want to be in the movie.' I'm not an actor, and the part that [Joe] Rogan plays was supposed to be mine. The last thing I need to do is to be leading by example that our guys should all be running towards the movies. There's only a couple of guys in the history of MMA that have actually done a great job in a movie, you know what I mean?"
-- During an interview with "Inside MMA's" Ron Kruck, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White revealed that he was originally offered a part in Kevin James' upcoming movie "Here Comes the Boom." However, the Zuffa boss had to respectfully decline, due largely in part to his believed failure as an actor in a recent UFC-fueled Bud Light commercial. The advertisement also featured current UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. Looks like we won't be seeing "Uncle Dana" doing any on-screen fiction any time soon (other than when we get to see him telling us that Anderson Silva vs. Stephan Bonnar at UFC 153 is going to be a competitive fight). What say you, Maniacs? Are you planning on seeing "Here Comes the Boom?" And do you see the UFC-propped-up feature film being a box office hit or a colossal dud? Sound off!
