Guardians of the Galaxy - Dave Bautista

Posted: Updated:

What do you get when you combine a guy who's totally jacked up, a comic book and a movie? One of this summer's biggest flicks. Tonight, we go up close and personal with one of the stars of the new movie "Guardians of the Galaxy."

Comic books are tightening their grip on the movies. "Guardians of the Galaxy" is based on a Marvel comic series, and the movie version is expected to be a summer Blockbuster.

This time an unlikely group of galactic ex-cons/super heroes team up to save the day.

Dave Bautista: "The super heroes in Guardians aren't your stereotypical super heroes. They don't have these amazing superhero powers. They've also got a lot of baggage. They have interesting back stories."

One of the super heroes is Drax, played by Bautista. And he was in South Florida today telling Deco Drive about comics and careers.

Dave Bautista: "It's hard to describe Drax. I always tell people they gotta know two things about him. One, he's heartbroken and two, he takes everything literarily, so everything you say to him he's going to take literally, and he literally means everything he says."

Drax sounds like a big softy, but Bautista is anything but. The actor is a former MMA fighter and professional wrestling star.

Dave Bautista: "I fell into acting. I did a favor for a friend. I was still wresting and realized I loved it. I wanted to pursue it while I was at WWE, but I was locked down under contract."

Dave's gone from the WWE ring to the big screen.

Dave Bautista: "I actually wanted to fight, and I wanted to be an actor. I said I wanted to pursue these things, and I wanted to do it while I was WWE, and they wouldn't let me, and I said 'OK, I'm going to leave. I'm going to pursue these things.'"

Wrestling's loss is Marvel Comic's gain.

Dave Bautista: "Yeah, I think I did all right."

No one's going to argue with Bautista, especially when he is guarding our galaxy.

    When I first heard that the Crop Top was back in style, I walked straight into my bedroom, stood in front of the mirror, lifted my shirt, turned to the side and stuck my gut out as far as it would go.

    Mattie McDonald was one of the prettiest women I'd ever seen. She had light green eyes, dark brown hair and milky white skin. When she wafted by me, she smelled of lavender, honeysuckle and some other hypnotizing perfume I couldn't quite put my finger on. I spent a lot of my spare time daydreaming about her and not just because I wanted to know her. Ultimately, I wanted to be her.

    When I walked out of the Hong Kong airport, the heat of the city slapped me so hard across the face, it was like a woman catching her cheating husband with a long-suspected mistress.

    When it comes to the movie "Hercules," the big man on screen and the bigwig behind the scenes have more than the movie in common. They share a love of the same hometown.

    You can work up a great big hunger when you're an action hero, especially if you're playing a guy who's half man, half god. Dwyane "The Rock" Johnson gets really hungry in his latest movie, "Hercules." Our So-Flo homeboy had to stay pretty jacked for the role. That meant watching his diet, but when it was finally time to let loose, he knew just where to go.
