In the Sci-Fi Channels latest show, Rock Monster, an American college student played by newcomer Chad Collins battles a monster made entirely of rocks, and Collins thinks hes ready for real monster mangling.
He says, Id like to get more training, maybe with a master swordsman, before I go up against any more big daddies like this one. But I came out of that unscathed, so I think Ive got a good chance if I battle any real monsters.
Collins says preparing for the role was challenging because, as he puts it, Its hard getting all amped up when its a pebble youre fighting.
Still, getting into the rough and tumble of fighting a computer-generated monster was still no easy task.
Collins explains, Lets just say Im not professionally trained. I went hunting and fishing as a kid, thats about as wild as it gets.
Rock Monster premieres this Saturday (Mar. 22) on the Sci-Fi Channel.
