Championships and accomplishments
After retiring from wrestling, he appeared in numerous films, including How to Make a Monster (as Hardcore), Joe Dirt, The Scorpion King, Troy (as Ajax), Hercules (as Antaeus), X-Men as Sabretooth (which was his film debut), and The Devil's Rejects (in the uncredited role of Rufus). The role of Sabretooth was initially intended for Mane's former wrestling tag team parter, Kevin Nash, but was awarded to Mane due to Nash's scheduling conflicts. Nash would, however, get a small role in a later Marvel Comics film, The Punisher.
In 2007, he filmed Rob Zombie's remake of Halloween, in which he played the iconic starring role of Michael Myers. After winning the role, he noted that he consecutively watched seven of the eight Halloween films (excluding the third because Michael Myers does not appear) to better understand his character. In 2009, he reprised the role again in Rob Zombie's H2, becoming only the second actor to play Michael Myers more than once, and the only actor to play the role in two consecutive films.
He is currently married to actress Renae Geerlings and has two children from a previous marriage.
