Jesse Ventura tells Howard Stern about role in Wachowski brothers' new movie
Another starring role
Fresh off dissing teabaggers on "Larry King Live," getting banned from Huffington Post for conspiracy mongering, and earning the ire of MSNBC's Keith Olbermann, Jesse Ventura has spilled the beans to Howard Stern about a super-secret film from the Wachowski brothers.
For what it's worth, Arianna Huffington, proprietress of HuffPo, also appears in the movie.
Here's what Ventura said about working with the Wachowskis, famous for their "Matrix" triology, via Movieweb:
"Wait till you hear what they did. They brought me, and they brought Arianna Huffington in after me. Arianna was there, and they had her looking like Cleopatra. What they did... Do you remember what John Travolta looked like in that horrible film Battlefield Earth? They put multicolored dreadlocks on me all the way to here. They gave me this crazy beard that was hanging down pointed, looked like Travolta, right? And they put a third eye in the middle of my forehead. Because what this is, is this is a hundred years in the future, and they wanted me to talk about the current war in Iraq and how I felt about it. And so I got to vent, looking like this maniac in this whole outfit."
