inmate profile: Kevin Nash

This week the Committed spotlight is shining on the cast and crew of the next Asylum release, Almighty Thor, which debuts this Saturday night on SyFy at 9pm. Next on stage is wrestler-turned actor Kevin Nash, best known to wrestling fans as Diesel.

Nash started transitioning into acting in 1997, but it wasn't until 2004 that his career really began to take off, initiated by a sizable role in The Punisher (the Thomas Jane/John Travolta version). From there Nash went on to other roles of note in The Longest Yard alongside Chris Rock and Adam Sandler, Grandma's Boy from Sandler's Happy Madison production company, and the video game adaptation D.O.A., as well as keeping up his activities in the ring.

Nash's latest role, as you might have guessed, is in The Asylum's Almighty Thor, in which he plays Odin, Thor's father and king of the Norse gods. And judging from the photo on the right, dude might just be the most aptly cast Odin going (sorry, Sir Anthony, but, c'mon...).

Nash brings a certain...formidability to the role, as, you know, he could literally kick the ass of everyone on set. Not individually mind you, but "everyone," as in all at once. Should be interesting to see him pull it off. 

Tune in this Saturday night, May 7th, at 9pm on SyFy to see. And if you're on the West Coast, drop by here for my live blog event during the premiere. There's gonna be booze!
