Last December, Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington tweeted that The Wachowski Siblings had put her in one of their upcoming projects. Now, /Film is reporting that actor, activist, and former Minnesota governor Jesse Ventura may not have time to bleed but did have time to shoot a scene in the movie. On The Howard Stern Show yesterday, Ventura revealed that he had a recently played a part in the production. Here’s how he described it:
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.
It’s all very mysterious what the Wachowskis are up to, and not even Ventura knew what it was all about, which is interesting because I would ask one or two questions about why folks were putting wacky makeup on me. But that’s just me.
