Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino may have gotten his big break on MTV’s Jersey Shore, but according to a new interview that he conducted with E! News’ Marc Malkin, it seems like he is ready to start exiting the number one reality series on television.
“Hopefully by the end of the year I’ll be in a movie,” he said. “There’s only so long you can rule the reality world. Maybe another year or so of reality, and then I’m gonna graduate to movies… It’s like Michael Jordan. There’s only so long you can keep winning them rings.”
I understand The Situation’s thinking: the best way to advance is to move up while you’re still popular. But has any reality TV personality made it big as a movie star (or even on scripted TV)? Maybe he should see how a guest spot on ‘Skins‘ goes? Oh, wait, that show may get canceled before it even gets started.
