Jesse Ventura: Governor Role in Movie a Good Fit

Tuesday, 09 Aug 2011 09:09 AM

 

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. — Jesse Ventura thinks his time as Minnesota's governor makes an acting role as Indiana's governor not much of a stretch.

The former pro wrestler and occasional actor spent Monday in Terre Haute, Ind., filming scenes with veteran actor Tom Sizemore for the movie "The Drunk."

The film written by Terre Haute natives William Tanoos and Paul Fleschner stars Tanoos as the fictional grandson of 20th century labor leader Eugene Debs who is running for governor against Sizemore's corrupt prosecutor character.

Ventura tells the Tribune-Star he found the role interesting and that it was written with him in mind.

The movie is in its fourth week of filming.
