Star also says in new interview he was first considered for “The Wrestler”
While still working with his attorneys to find the person responsible for the leak of that intimate video that’s floating around, Hulk Hogan is also speaking out on his ideal next project: “The Expendables 3.”In a recent interview with Howard Stern, which you will find in its entirety here (*please note that some discretion is recommended because of graphic language that might offend), Hulk talks about his ongoing projects and what else he’d like to do next.
For instance, he says he’d love to be on “The Expendables 3” (at the 54:00 mark) playing the bad guy, if possible. He also says his fans are campaigning on Twitter to get his name out there.
In the same interview, Hogan claims that the part that eventually went to Mickey Rourke in “The Wrestler” was meant for him (at the 39:00 mark), a claim that director Darren Aronofsky has already denied on Twitter.
“The problem is, if I had done it, Hollywood would have looked at it as a joke,” Hogan explains.
Aronofsky is having none of it though.
“for the record the role of the wrestler was always @mickeyrourke it was never hulk hogan’s as he claims on @howardstern,” he writes.
