You would think that casting a 90 million dollar film that has a huge cult following would be easy, where's most actors almost kill for a chance to be in a potential blockbuster film Raw Leiba looks at it differently "I think if your good at what you do and you continue to work at your craft, good things will happen for you" Leiba says.

The stuntman turned actor was reportedly offered in the neighborhood of 3 million dollars to be a villain in the Marcus Nispel directed remake of "Conan"(most speculate it was he role of Ukafa but some reports say it was character being "created" of an Indian persuasion). "If your acting for money that's one thing,I guess I could back out on my other projects and be known for saying one thing and doing another or you stay true to your word and other commitments I can remember a time I was broke and I was happy then too".Those commitments are reported to be "The Driver" with Heather Locklear (Boston Legal) and Abe Vigoda (Barney Miller ,Fish) and another "unnamed project" with a "major director" attached. Leiba has since signed on to be stunt coordinator on the Rel Dowdell feature film "Changing the Game" starring Tony Todd (Candyman) and Kirk "Sticky Fingaz" Jones (Blade the Series)
Nispel is reported as saying,"I like him (Leiba) good actor,very smart, athletic,phenomenal physique" but adds, "We have a great cast,Im very happy with what we have".

Jason Momoa(Stargate/Atlantis) is "Conan", Mickey Rourke has been cast as his father "Corin" and Bob Sapp is the aforementioned villain "Ukafa".

So can things change? "Never say never,but its not likely" says Leiba.

Well I argree he LOOKS the most impressive of the current cast,I guess thats why Nispel wants him so bad,If he can acteven a little its worth it,good thing Mickey Rourke is in. Barman 2010-03-04 09:59:06 17
Saw him in Street Fighter TLY and he was good in that,but his body is so awesome it distracts you from his acting..very very nice :) Sunday 2010-03-04 16:35:47 20
He's ok,look just cause someone has a great body doesnt make him a great actor,I will give him the benifit of doubt because there are a bunch of new actors in this thing and Nispel seems to want him so bad,but lets not make this dude the next George Clooney or Denzel..pleaseeee relax people!!

Who does Leiba think he's kidding?..he's probably turning down the 3 million dollars cause he's making more money on the other projects,but he's trying to make it seem like hes this stand up guy.If he is the guy he says he is hes gotta be the only one in Hollywood,I dont trust any of these guys.

Dude, I seen thats dude picture, he's built like one of my action figures in my old toy chest, thats awesome!! Jason 2010-03-08 10:04:38 32
My wife wants this guy to be in this movie so bad,just to see him with his shirt off,give me a jerry 2010-03-10 10:52:49 37
The question we need to ask is why is he turning down 3 million dollars? Hes either holding out for more or hes got another movie thats paying him more,I doubt that that Leiba is as honorable as he puts out,but hes kinda hot though. Kendra 2010-03-26 07:25:49 58
You know what? The film is gonna happen with or without Leiba,I was surprised to hear that Sean Hood would rewrte the ending just so he could be in the film,and now since everybody is making such a big deal about Leiba Im interested to see what will happen,I saw on ET where he already said he wasnt donig this film.
