(Right. You tweak your nipples, but *that’s* weird.)
If Keith Jardine is trying to use MMA as a springboard to an acting career, I ain’t mad at him. But making ultra-short cameos in awful-looking movies is a strange way to go about it. As IMDb informs us, Jardine’s first make-believe role was as "Jay Boy Simpson" in a cringeworthy Toby Keith vehicle called Beer for my Horses. (If you can find a clip of the Dean of Mean’s scene, please let us know.) Then, he continued his assault on Hollywood with a seven-second appearance in Crank: High Voltage, which we’ve posted above. It probably would have been better for his personal brand if Statham said "Never better, UFC fighter Keith Jardine. Now where can I buy that eye-catching t-shirt?" But you take what you can get, I suppose.
Anyway, if you thought those roles were impressive, just wait until you see Keith firing a machine gun for half-a-second in the trailer for Gamer…

So, Gamer is a about a dystopian future where people can control other people (for real) in ultra-violent virtual-reality MMORPGs, and one of the players (Gerard Butler of 300) decides he’s had enough and goes after the game’s evil creator, played by Michael C. Hall, of Six Feet Under/Dexter fame, doing an embarassingly bad southern accent. Don’t blink at the 1:46-1:47 mark or you’ll miss Jardine’s big moment. You know what they say about how there’s no small roles, just small actors? Not true, it turns out.
By the way, Jardine isn’t even listed on the IMDb cast page for this one, though Milo Ventimiglia is, as a character named, I shit you not, Rick Rape. Not to confused with his more easygoing brother, Rick Roll…
