Earlier today we reported that Mariano ‘Big Dawg’ Mendoza was added to the IMDb cast & crew page for 3 From Hell, Rob Zombie’s upcoming sequel to House of 1,000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects. This afternoon Mendoza confirmed that IMDb’s listing is indeed legit by replying to our post, via Twitter, with this awesome shot of himself on set with Mr. Zombie:

According to the IMDb listing, Mendoza will be playing a character called “Gonzo”. While 3 From Hell may be the former MMA heavyweight’s first Rob Zombie movie, ‘Big Dawg’ has over one hundred television and film appearances under his belt since the mid-2000s.
