Jeff Jarrett had the chance to prove it in 2013 when he was featured in the movie Spring Breakers which also starred James Franco, Selena Gomez, and Vanessa Hudgens. Jarrett, in his very brief cameo, tries to convince the main characters to devote their lives to Jesus Christ.

Now, in a new interview with Cheap Heat Productions, Jeff Jarrett reflects on his children enjoying that he worked with Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens and says that the role was originally slated for the former Batman star, Val Kilmer.

"That opportunity literally dropped out of thin air sitting in my desk. I'll never net because I've told the story. I got an email. They said, 'Hey, Val Kilmer was supposed to read for this part but he dropped out.' They're like, 'We would like for you to read for this.' I'm like, 'Yeah, sure.' I thought it was a joke because there's a cold email that I received Anyway, I did the read in my office and sent them back and you got it and they said, Oh, yeah, Selena Gomez is in this movie, and Vanessa, all these [stars] and look I've got five kids, four of them are girls and you know, years ago Disney Channel and Selena and all that. I was excited that they were going to get the opportunity to meet her on set. but it was a fun part. But I don't have plans [to go off to Hollywood.]"

Even though Jeff Jarrett has no Hollywood aspirations, he has a lifetime of memories in wrestling that’d easily fill a Hollywood film.
