Rob Niter and Simeon Panda are breaking into acting.
Making the transition to acting isn’t always the smoothest thing. It can take time to truly get good at the craft and jumping into a major starring role too soon could possible spell certain doom for an actor’s career. This is why people opt to take smaller roles in order to hone their craft, the notion that it will one day prepare them for bigger speaking roles down the line. This seems to be the case for two fitness stars looking to transition into acting as Rob Niter and Simeon Panda are set to appear in the upcoming film Chase.
Both former Musclemania pro competitors, Rob Niter and Simeon Panda are looking to test the waters of acting and add to their long resume of accomplishments. Their roles in the film are indeed cameos but they do get to have some speaking lines. It’s smaller roles like these that have the potential to earn these athletes something bigger down the line.
Rob Niter confirmed the involvement of himself and Simeon Panda on social media.
The film also stars comedian and actor Aries Spears seen below in another of Rob Niter’s posts.
Simeon Panda also took to his Instagram to spread the word about the upcoming film.
Yesterday I shot my first fight scene in a movie, I have never sweat so much in clothes in all my life! My clothes were drenched from head to toe, certainly kept the make up artist busy, dapping sweat off my head after each take. My body was in bits after the shoot, woke up with aches everywhere, but I’m good, it was a great experience and I’m ready for more. @chasemoviereal
This is a big step for both Rob Niter and Simeon Panda and will hopefully lead to more roles for the two fitness entrepreneurs.
