‘Hornswoggle’ Dylan Postl On ‘Leprechaun: Origins,’ WWE, Pro Wrestling [VIDEO EXCLUSIVE]
Dylan Postl, better known as ‘Hornswoggle’ in the World Wrestling Federation, stars in the new movie Leprechaun: Origins. Postl is learning about the differences between life in the ring and in front of the camera. “It’s a lot less on your body that’s for sure,” he told uInterview at San Diego Comic-Con 2014. “You’re not taking body slams every night, everyday, every night of the week and all year around. “It’s a lot of fun. Both of them are so much fun.”
The Leprechaun films have been a staple in the horror movie industry since the original was released in 1993. But this film is a bit different from its predecessors. “Man, it’s just a very jump-scare movie,” said Postl. “There’s no ‘hokieness’ and ‘gaga’ and limericks like the originals. It’s just straight horror film.”
There's so much difference between WWE and acting. It's a lot less on your body that's for sure. You're not taking body slams every night, everyday, every night of the week and all year around. It's a lot of fun. Both of them are so much fun. I'm living my dream in WWE and this was a good change. It's a nice fun change.
Two-and-a-half hours, twice a day, but it was fully worth it. Seeing the final product for the first time last night, and it was fully worth it.
Man, it's just a very jump-scare movie. There's no 'hokieness' and 'gaga' and limericks like the originals. It's just straight horror film.
You know what, challenging means that you didn't enjoy them, and I enjoyed every one of them. I enjoyed shooting every one of the scenes because they were so much fun to do. There's a scene in a truck, and that's all I can say. And it was so much fun to do.
I don't get stressed, man. I get nervous. If you don't get nervous that means you're too comfortable and you can't do your job the way you should. But I love it. It's not work, work isn't fun. This is fun. It's living my dream.
