Cast: Mark Feuerstein, Melora Hardin, Paul Wight
A chance encounter between a down-on-his-luck MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) promoter and a hulking giant at an orphanage (of all places) forms the basis for the sports comedy, Knucklehead. Mark Feuerstein, Paul "The Big Show" Wight, Melora Hardin and Dennis Farina star in this very predictable, frequently sappy production.
Deep into debt to a loan shark, Eddie Sullivan (Feuerstein) has high hopes of parlaying his newest discovery, Walter (Wight, an actual WWE fighter), into box-office riches once he repays his unscrupulous creditor (Farina). Along with Hardin, the trio make their way to an MMA Tournament in New Orleans, barnstorming along the way to finance their entry fee. Of course the loan shark is close behind them, leaving them very little time to enjoy the trip.
Michael W. Watkins, Emmy-winner for his work on TV's Quantum Leap, directed.
