Owing to the muscular physique Bautista has, a majority of action and superhero film directors want to cast the actor in their films. His being a popular wrestler also played a major part in landing him the roles in these genres. This typecasting made Bautista wonder if he was “too unattractive” for the romantic comedy genre. However, a number of fans came to the actor’s defense.
Fans support Dave Bautista after the actor questions if he is too unattractive for rom-coms
While Dave Bautista is an action guy on-screen, he is a romantic at heart. Not long ago, the WWE star opened up about what he felt about the romantic comedy genre of films. Bautista revealed to Page Six that he would love to star in a romantic comedy film but often wonders whether he was “too unattractive” for these roles. Soon after the actor’s statement, a fan took to Twitter as he came in to the actor’s defense while even stating Arnold Schwarzenegger as an example. The user wrote, “They are not similar actors but Bautista does deserve that Schwarzenegger run of playing normal guys that simply happen to be enormous.”

Dude has solid construction worker/steal worker/pipeline vibes and could easily pull off a blue collar dude with a broken marriage to the high school cheerleader, alimony, child support… make it a redemption story, the good dad, meets abused single mom etc. starts life over…

If Woody Allen (looking like a Pixar character) could get people to believe he was a love interest in all those movies, Dave could EASILY carry a rom-com franchise.

Meanwhile, a user even suggested that the Knock at the Cabin actor should star in a nice slice of life tale.
Need Bautista to play a family man with a wife and 4 kids who wears cable knit sweaters, runs a little bookstore and is just trying to provide and get by. Just a nice slice of life tale.
