Tony Khan sees a lot of Rosamund Pike’s “Marla Grayson” in MJF.
Tony Khan recently spoke with Bleacher Report‘s Dr. Chris Mueller to promote AEW All Out on Sunday, and was asked for some movie recommendations as a fun way to cap off the interview. Khan rattled off a few films he’d seen recently, including the Netflix film I Care A Lot, a comedy/thriller that sees a con artist get upstaged by the elderly client she’s attempting to scheme. The AEW owner described how the lead character (played by Pike) reminded him of a certain wrestler named MJF that considers himself as “Salt of the Earth” despite some of his more nefarious actions.
“My friend, Jack Whitehall, was in Jungle Cruise. That was good,” he said. “I liked that there were moments that were very faithful to the ride and nods to Disney loyalists. Jack had really good comic chemistry with Dwayne Johnson.
“I saw a movie recently called I Care A Lot. It’s so dark and the lead character is so warped. The person I recommended it to was MJF because the lead character was so demented and believed what she was doing was right. I thought it would be right up his alley [laughs]. Rosamund Pike gave a great performance and it was a great character.
“The first movie I have seen in a theater in over a year was Wrath of Man. I really enjoyed it. I really enjoy Jason Statham and Guy Ritchie movies in general. Statham’s character was super badass, and it spoke to my wrestling mind to have the badass lead babyface character.”
