Dave Bautista would like to remind you that Dave Bautista is not interested in the Fast and Furious franchise. He's said it before, and he's saying it again in his own inimitable way.
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has a Fast and Furious spinoff coming up next month called Hobbs & Shaw. John Cena announced that he has joined Fast and Furious 9. One fan put those ideas together and tweeted that The Rock and John Cena will probably get a Fast spinoff and Dave Bautista will play the villain.
Dave Bautista responded to that idea with vomit emojis and a polite reminder that this particular former WWE star would "rather do good films":
The barfing is a nice touch, but it all tracks with what Dave Bautista said a few months ago about wanting higher quality roles in his career moving forward -- including his new role as Glossu Rabban in Dune:
Dave Bautista is trying to elevate his career, but to some fans that came off as snobbish. One fan even brought up how Dave Bautista was in Escape Plan 2: Hades with Sylvester Stallone, which not even Sly is willing to defend, and Bautista had a response to that too:
Big Dave has spoken! He knows he's been in bad movies, but that's the case for a lot of actors when they're starting out. Not everyone is lucky enough to start with an Oscar winner. Bautista has built an eclectic resume so far, but his most famous role is still Drax the Destroyer in Guardians of the Galaxy. That role has taken him through four Marvel Cinematic Universe movies so far, with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 to come.
Dave (should we always call him Big Dave?) Bautista is never shy with his opinions and he was the most blunt and outspoken in defense of Guardians director James Gunn. It's refreshing when celebs are candid with their opinions, which is not always the case, especially when they want to protect their careers or "brands." Big Dave has successfully branded himself as someone who speaks his mind, so good for him. It may not help if he ever wants to work with anyone who previously made a Fast and Furious movie, but maybe they'll understand his point about moving forward in his acting career.
Gina grew up in Massachusetts and California in her own version of The Parent Trap. She went to three different middle schools, four high schools, and three universities -- including half a year in Perth, Western Australia. She currently lives in a small town in Maine, the kind Stephen King regularly sets terrible things in, so this may be the last you hear from her.
