Spike likes Goldberg as 'Bullrun' host


Wrestling icon Bill Goldberg has signed on to host the new Spike TV series "Bullrun," set to premiere in the spring. "Bullrun," based on the international automotive rally, features 12 teams of two drivers who use their own cars in a rally that takes them across America in a competition for prize money and the 2007 Bullrun Trophy.

"These Bullrun contestants better bring the same intensity, passion, and love for cars that I have, or they are going to be left in the dust," said Goldberg, a former WWE and WCW World Heavyweight wrestling champion who left the ring in 2004 to pursue acting.

His credits include the film "The Longest Yard" and CBS' "Yes, Dear."

"Bullrun" is produced by Rocket Science Laboratories, Bullrun Llc. and Maloof Television. Goldberg is repped by APA, manager Erik Kritzer and attorney Henry Holmes.
