Manny Pacquiao Soon To Be A Hollywood Actor

FIL-AM ACTOR Rob Schneider wants to help launch the career of Manny Pacquiao as a Hollywood actor. Right after his fight with Tim Bradley on June 10, Rob wants him to start shooting a movie entitled “Brass Knuckles”, produced by Damien Perkins.

Rob did some hit comedies before, like “Deuce Bigalow: American Gigolo”, “The Hot Chick” and “The Animal”. But his movies of late weren’t well received, like “Big Stan”, “American Virgin” and “Grown Ups”. He even had his own self-titled TV show, “Rob”, but it ran for only 8 episodes. He’s better off doing guest roles in the movies of his friend Adam Sandler, whose own movies are no longer that big a hit, like “Jack and Jill” and “Zohan”.

Well, here’s hoping he’d be more successful in the Pacman movie they’d be doing together. The Pambansang Kamao will play a gangster in it, with Rob as his uncle, plus Oscar-winner Benicio del Toro also in the cast. Shooting starts in June and they hope to wrap it up by August so they can release it in December. (For it to qualify in the Oscars?) This will be helmed by Eric Geisler (brother of Baron?)
