​Bill Goldberg Discusses His Acting vs. The Rock’s, His New Movie, & Lots More


Goldberg spoke with the Huffington Post about his new film Check Point. Check out some highlights below:

On Check Point’s plot being an emotional subject: “Terrorism, as a whole, is — I don’t want to say ‘taboo’ — but it is a very emotional subject. For the plot of the movie to be that it is homegrown… The fact that it happens on our own soil and at the hands of our own citizens is touchy. Not only is it a reminder of the harsh reality that terrorism exists, but that it can actually be carried out on somebody that was born in the United States.”

On why the role appealed to him: “With my involvement with the military, and always wanting to raise awareness, I thought it was a perfect project.”

On whether the role is different from his ‘normal’ roles: “Is it stretching my acting legs? No — and yes. The part is an extension of myself, but any time I’m able to surround myself with experienced actors, I can do nothing but grow.”

On his acting vs. the Rock’s: “‘The Rock’ has definitely set the bar. He’s in a class by himself, and he always will be, I believe. He’s an ‘entertainer,’ and always has been — in the ring and out. I’m more of a ‘competitor;’ I like to go in the ring and let people judge the competition.”
