Jake “The Snake” Roberts planning career comeback with new film



excerpt from eonline.com

The 58-year-old is currently working on a new film titled Heavy Water. The flick is in the funding stages right now and is looking for financial backing on the fundraising site Kickstarter.

The Texas native is slated to play the role of Jed, who acts as a paternal figure to the lead role, River.

According to the movie’s Kickstarter page, “Jake’s experience as a professional wrestler translated into strong performances and brought a powerful presence to his character. His ability to improvise, take direction, and become the character shines through in his depiction of Jed.”

The film has reached over $4,000 in donations and needs $25,000 by Aug. 21 in order to fully fund the project.

Jake, the son of wrestler Grizzly Smith, first stepped into the ring in 1983, making his World Wrestling Federation debut in 1986.
