Reaction Zone - So.....who should play Vince McMahon in a movie?

By now, I'm sure you've heard that they're planning on doing a feature film biography of WWE CEO/Chairman/Head Lunatic Vince McMahon. One question on fans' collective lips is a matter of who would play McMahon. I think I have the answer, and I've had it for a few years.

I'd suggest John Travolta.

Wait, you're saying. The man who played dimwitted Vinnie Barbarino 40 years ago on "Welcome Back, Kotter" as Vince McMahon? Yep.

Think back to when "The Punisher" was remade 13 years ago with Thomas Jane in the title role. Travolta played the villain in the movie, and wore his hair almost exactly the way McMahon would. A few tweaks here and there, and....voila. Kevin Nash was in the movie, and could probably testify to Travolta's, ah, "qualifications" for the part.

Now, understand that Vince's wife, Linda, has gone on record saying the biography might not get made after all. Too many things that Vince would rather keep hidden, including the salient fact that his on-screen persona had grown progressively insane during the '00's, and there's no way to spin that in a positive way without offending someone. Of course, Travolta has to lose a few pounds in the right places to make it work, and......!

Just sayin'. What about you?
