Not content with merely being a a stomach flashing reality tycoon, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino wants a chance to flex his acting muscles, which he seems to think are as big as his biceps. In fact, he wants to follow in the footsteps of great thespians like Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Leonardo DiCaprio…and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Let’s aim for The Rock and see what happens, Mike. To be fair, he does have some similarities with this list of masters. He shares the Italian heritage with Rob, Al and Leo, and both The Sitch and The Rock are known for being shirtless. Plus they both have “The” in their names. He’ll be a natural!
He recently opened up to In Touch Online about his next career move. “Obviously, I look up to De Niro and Pacino, and for someone who’s closer in age Leo [DiCaprio] — I’d eventually like to make great movies someday,” told “But I’m trying to go in a trajectory similar to ‘The Rock,’ [Dwayne Johnson], who took his bold personality and phrases from the WWE into film.” We’re not sure if you can jump from the Rock track to the De Niro track, but Mike’s sure gonna try! He’s making his acting debut with a cameo in the upcoming Three Stooges remake. Maybe someday he’ll be trading those vodka bottles for Oscars.
