In an interview with Comicbook.com, MJF spoke about his aspirations for a career in acting and professional wrestling. He said that he believes in five years he will be a familiar face in both television/films and pro wrestling and would like to concurrently pursue both roles full-time. MJF also said he plans to release a music album in the future.
“I genuinely think in five years from now, I’m going to be a guy that people see regularly on their TV screen outside of the professional wrestling landscape. Trust me, I love wrestling too much to not still be involved in it. I will most likely still be full-time, but I want to be acting full-time as well by then. I would also like to put out an album by then. I would like to be a well distinguished actor that is recognized as being a great actor that transitioned from wrestling like these greats that did it before me. Like Dwayne, like Batista. Like Cena,” MJF said.
MJF, has a minor role in “The Iron Claw” as Lance Von Erich. MJF praised the film, calling it a masterpiece and expressing support for director Sean Durkin’s choices.
I’m sure that you’re going to find that there was a lot of stuff that got cut and it wasn’t because it wasn’t good. I think everything that was shot was absolutely fantastic. Not just my stuff, but every actor had stuff that got cut. It’s just like there’s only so much time. The story that’s most important is the brothers. That’s what it came down to. I couldn’t agree with Sean Durkin more on the decisions he made. The film is an absolute masterpiece,” MJF said.
