It looks like yet another WWE wrestler is due to guest star on USA Network's Psych.
ProWrestling.net notes that Tvbythenumbers.com revealed in an official press release earlier today that The Big Show, currently heading for a showdown with Sheamus at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view later this month, is due to guest star on the upcoming seventh series of the hit buddy cop show.
The Big Show (real name: Paul Wight) has, due to his impressive size and decent acting skills, assembled quite the acting resume over the last 15 years, taking on supporting roles in well-known movies like Jingle All the Way, MacGruber and The Waterboy. In 2011 he also starred in Knucklehead, a truly risible "comedy" film from WWE Studios that was a financial and critical disaster.
Interestingly, this isn't the giant's first role in a scripted USA Network drama either; he also filmed a part in Royal Pains last year.
As mentioned, by appearing on the show, The Big Show follows in the footsteps of many other WWE Superstars before him. WWE Diva Mickie James appeared in a roller derby-themed episode of Psych in 2008, John Cena guest starred the following year, playing the older brother to one of the show's lead characters, and The Miz filmed a part as a crazed reality show contestant last year.
