I agree that Austin is a better actor than most people give him credit. It's easy to dismiss him because , in all honesty , 90% of wrestlers-turned-actors suck. Given the right material , he could shine. His stint in Chuck was funny.
IMO Damage was a step in the right direction , let's hope he doesn't get a role in a Disney movie as a chaperon for a bunch of troubled kids ( oh burn Triple H lol )
