Thanks to the Guardians of the Galaxy movies and the past two Avengers films, Dave Bautista’s acting career is at an all-time high. Bautista’s innate comedic chops are on display with Stuber, a flick that centers on a cop (Bautista) who’s trying to catch a killer with the help of an Uber driver (Kumail Nanjiani).
“He has such a subtle type of humor,” said Bautista. “He doesn’t have to try very hard where you see a lot of comedians when they’re in these types of roles – it seems like they’re just trying to hard to be funny and Kumail is just naturally such a funny person.”

Stuber, co-starring Karen Gillan and Mira Sorvino, hits theaters July 12.
