He has a number of upcoming acting roles, including Leonard in Knock at the Cabin.
Bautista has played a variety of roles, including Duke Cody in Glass Onion and Glossu Rabban Harkonnen in Dune Part 2.
The actor began his career as a pro wrestler but always wanted to be a respected actor.

Dave Bautista is grateful for the opportunity to play Drax but is also relieved it is over.
