Jesse Ventura has said that he has a role in a "top secret" sci fi film directed by the Wachowski brothers.

According to Scifiwire, the former governor will have a role alongside pundit Arianna Huffington.

"Wait 'til you hear what they did. They brought me, and they brought Arianna Huffington in after me. Arianna was there, and they had her looking like Cleopatra," he explained.

"What they did. Do you remember what John Travolta looked like in that horrible film Battlefield Earth?

"They put multicolored dreadlocks on me all the way to here. They gave me this crazy beard that was hanging down pointed, looked like Travolta, right? And they put a third eye in the middle of my forehead. Because what this is, is this is a hundred years in the future, and they wanted me to talk about the current war in Iraq and how I felt about it."

Ventura went on to say he felt like "a maniac in the whole outfit."
