Sunday 20 December 1998
THE NEWLY crowned governor of Minnesota, ex-professional wrestler Jesse Ventura, has signed a $500,000 contract with Random House for the rights to his life-story. Provisionally titled I Ain't Got Time to Bleed: Reworking the Body Politic From the Bottom Up, the work will discuss his past as an actor, wrestler and Navy Seal. When filming Predator, Ventura found that his lines were being given to other actors. He kicked open the door of the producer, Joel Silver, and demanded redress. But his best lines later cropped up in Arnold Schwarzenegger's dialogue during the film's battle scenes.
