Though I think its a little late to try and cash in on the Stone Cold Steve Austin money train, seeing that he hasn’t wrestled a real match since Wrestlemania 19 and that was three years ago, let alone the fact that its been six years since he was a real money maker, but I’m up for whatever the WWE does with this guy. Here is some info on his new movie role.
I actually didn’t pick this picture of him, it came along with the article From Darkhorizons.com:

World Wrestling Entertainment has made a deal with Lionsgate to distribute drama “The Condemned,” to star Stone Cold Steve Austin (“The Longest Yard”) and Vinnie Jones (“X-Men: The Last Stand”), with Scott Wiper directing reports Variety.
Austin will play a man on death row in a corrupt Central American prison. He’s “purchased” by a wealthy TV producer, who pits him and nine other condemned men in a battle to the death. Wiper rewrote a script by Rob and Andrew Hedden.
This is the third picture project for WWE, the first two – “See No Evil” with Kane and “The Marine” with John Cena, open May 19th and September 8th respectively. “The Condemned,” which begins shooting May 15 in Australia, marks the third film to be shot at Warner Roadshow Studios in Australia.
