Since his acting debut in the soap opera, Neighbours, Dave Bautista has been turning heads in Hollywood. The former professional wrestler found his biggest role to date as Drax in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There’s one other franchise that he had his eye on.

The Animal Awakens

Dave Bautista revealed to Flickering Myth that he tried out for an undisclosed role in Star Wars. “It was always a dream of mine to be in a Star Wars film,” he stated in the interview.

Unfortunately, he was turned down in two auditions.

Save The Rebellion

While he’s still a fan of the franchise, these current films aren’t getting him excited. One specific film, however, stood out to him the most. “I particularly loved Rogue One. I thought it was a really great film and I love that they went a little bit dark with it. I thought it was really interesting,” he said.

Even though he didn’t get a shot in Star Wars, he was lucky enough to still work with parent company Disney. His role as Drax has opened several doors for his career. “I was excited, and my agent told me this was a big part, and a lot of people were trying to get this part, and it was great. I needed it. I needed a big break,” he told Movieweb.

I’m Sure I’m Invisible

Currently, his work in Guardians of the Galaxy 3 will be on hold for now. While Disney searches for a new director, Bautista will be able to focus on his other movie projects. Recently, he finished working on Master Z: Ip Man LegacyStuber, and Escape Plan 3: Devil’s Station.

He’ll return to take part in the highly anticipated Avengers 4 film, which comes out on May 3.
