  7. Dave Bautista on Knock

From the far reaches of the galaxy as Drax in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy, to Oscar-winning Dune, to Rian Johnson’s sensational sequel, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, Dave Bautista is killing it in Hollywood. While promoting his latest film, M. Night Shyamalan’s latest psychological thriller, Knock at the Cabin, Bautista sat down with Collider’s own Steve Weintraub to talk about his new role and more.

In Knock at the Cabin, Bautista plays Leonard in what Collider’s Ross Bonaime describes as, “a performance that shows the depth of emotion he can pull off in every scene.” Leonard is a mysterious stranger who appears at the doorstep of a cabin secluded deep in the woods. Flanked by four others wielding an assortment of weapons, they interrupt a family’s vacation with a terrifying ultimatum. Bautista’s Leonard seems conflicted as he explains to the subdued couple, played by Jonathan Groff and Ben Aldridge, that they and their young daughter, Wen (Kristen Cui), must make a horrible decision to prevent the apocalypse.

During his interview, Bautista discusses the trajectory of his career since his first feature role in Buschwick at Sundance and making that transition from a six-time world champion in wrestling to a rising star in Hollywood. He talks about still being a “fanboy” when meeting directors, prepping for this role, why it was important for him to see M. Night Shyamalan’s cameo in Knock at the Cabin, and how working with Shyamalan is different than with other filmmakers. Bautista also confirms the sequel to 2020’s My Spy and teases his upcoming film, The Cooler, from Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation screenwriter, Drew Pearce.

I think we’ll always associate Batista with Drax. But not because it’s the MCU, or because he was so goofy, etc. But because of how much he did for that character, with so little screen time. Perhaps a role no one else could have nailed so perfectly.

Give this man his romcom!!! All the respect to Dave for his perseverance, going into WWE after not being able to buy Christmas presents for his daughters, going into acting, going bankrupt and turning down shitty roles and biding his time, I have so much respect for his perseverance and talent.
