EXCLUSIVE | MMA to Movies: Actor Dale Miller Talks Transitioning, Pitfalls, and Advice

November 7, 2012 8:36 am by Sean McClure

Dale Miller is a former MMA fighter. Miller competed before MMA was regulated and when insurance was a rarity. He worked his way up from amateur mixed martial artist to actor.

Dale has appeared in movies you can find on your Wal-Mart DVD shelves. His last was Hatfields and McCoys: Bad Blood (2012). He played a confederate soldier in the film that starred Christian Slater and Jeff Fahey. He is also in the upcoming film with an international cast that also features Joe Estevez. Miller has appeared in films alongside Henry Winkler, Al Snow, and many other well known people in the film community. In addition to these films, Dale appears a celebrity at Fright Night Film Fest in Louisville, KY. The film festival is the largest of its kind in the United States. This year’s guest list will most likely include William Shatner, Bruce Campbell, and many more. Last year’s convention had the cast of Boondock Saints and the Walking Dead with an attendance that shattered all previous records.

Dale is currently working on several projects, but took time out to speak with BJPenn.com Monday night. Everything you would expect was present. Lights, large cameras, film crew, and plenty of extras. I was on set with Dale this week to interview him about his upcoming film Chain of Events, directed by Mark McDonald. Dale spoke about the difficulties of transitioning from MMA to movies, and gave tips to fighters aspiring to be actors wishing to follow the same path that he did.
