Local WWE wrestler Brodus Clay takes on next challenge: acting

World Wrestling Entertainment superstar, Tampa resident and only Funkasaurus in captivity Brodus Clay is adding "actor" to his resume with the gory horror flick No One Lives. Sure, it's only a supporting role billed eighth in a low-name cast, but Clay is 6-foot-7 and 375 pounds; nobody here at the Times wants him unleashing his trademark "Running Splash" finishing move on us. No One Lives opens Friday exclusively at Tampa's Veterans 24 theater, and Clay will conduct a Q&A session after the 7 p.m. screening. In the movie, a gang of ruthless killers kidnaps a wealthy couple, things go wrong and a lot of people die. No One Lives received generally mixed reviews from such specialty websites like Arrow in the Head, Dread Central and, if that tells you anything. Oh, and Clay is billed by his given name, George Murdoch. You know, so this acting gig won't conflict with his day job. — Steve Persall, Times movie critic
