Deontay Wilder ain’t finished with his superstar rise by a long shot … ‘cause now he wants to take Hollywood by storm … and he’s got the PERFECT role in mind to get his career started.
As Clubber Lang’s son … in the next “Creed” movie.
If you don’t remember Clubber (shame on you), he was the total BADASS played by Mr. T in “Rocky III” — and the first guy other than Apollo to put something on Rock’s ass.
We got Wilder in NYC, and he told us he DEFINITELY wants to make a serious splash in the film industry and thinks this role could be the one.
“That’s what I’m all about, my passion is acting!”
Think about it … Lang was a big, scary guy who hit like a ton of bricks … and if you’re going to cast another big, scary guy who hits like a ton of bricks, is there anyone better?
FYI — Wilder says he doesn’t look at acting as a side hustle or hobby, telling our guy he wants it to be his full-time career after he hangs up his leather.
