‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin – The Condemned:
Austin made pro-wrestling fans scream as one of the most popular WWE champions in history. In a sense, that’s definitely acting mixed with athletic performance, even if it is scripted. Pro wrestlers put their bodies through a torturous grind and are always at risk of serious injury.
Those eventually caught up to “Stone Cold,” and when they did, he tried his hand at acting. The result was a starring role in the campy “Condemned,” where criminals were dropped on an island and forced to fight it out to the death in a “Running Man”-like television show. Let’s just say Austin’s acting in the WWE ring was much more convincing.
