Mandatory Interviews Orton

Mandatory: Thanks so much for taking the time to answer a few questions, I know you're busy. I just watched "12 Rounds: Reloaded" and it was great. What was it like working in front of a camera instead of an arena full of fans?

Randy Orton: Well, in that arena full of fans there's usually a couple of cameras keeping an eye on us there too, you know? When we do T.V., we've got 5, 6, 7 cameras on us at one time and that's how this director liked to do things. He always had at least 4 or 5 cameras running so the whole multiple cameras and, you know, in front of people thing, I was used to that. Doing live TV, there's nothing more stressful than that, but with the movie, I was very nervous. I had about 20 hours of acting classes crammed in the week before I flew up to Vancouver. We rehearsed up there for a week and that helped with some of the nerves, being up there around everybody. Everyone was great and really nice to me. They knew I was a beginner and that I needed to lean on them as much as possible, but it was kind of a lot less stressful than the whole wrestling thing because we had take after take after take. If something happened the director didn't like, just do it again.
