Dave Bautista dreams of playing Ernest Hemingway

Think Ernest Hemingway, but jacked.

That's what Dave Bautista is dreaming about. After demanding to DC that he play Bane, and landing a role in Knives Out 2 with the entirety of Hollywood, the WWE star declared his dream role is Hemingway. "I think I could do him justice," Bautista told Polygon. "I think he's so interesting, everything about his life, and the way he lived, and also the way he died."

While they may have similar facial structure, a champion wrestler Hemingway was not. Perhaps for this role, Bautista would have to stop hitting the gym … A Farewell to Arms if you will.
