The Miz talked about how he handled the transition to a good-guy role for WWE Studios’s “Marine 3″ movie during an interview with the Times Record News.
“I derived that character from a bunch of old movies … a lot of Paul Newman movies. I haven’t played a good guy in seven years.”
Miz credited Billy Kidman for keeping him going even when everyone else thought he should quit during his time in developmental.
“It was brutal just having people tell you you’re not going to make it. But that was the fuel,” Miz said. “One of the best pieces of advice I’ve ever gotten was from Billy Kidman, who said, ‘Stick with it.’”
