The Situation aims to go from 'Jersey Shore' to movies

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and his six-pack abs may one day end up on the big screen. The "Jersey Shore" star has announced that he's planning to leave MTV's hit series to become a movie star.

"There's only so long you can rule the reality world," he tells E! Online. "Maybe another year or so of reality, and then I'm gonna graduate to movies."

The 28-year-old gym, tanning and laundry fanatic likens his situation to that of a great athlete.

"It's like Michael Jordan. There's only so long you can keep winning them rings. You gotta move on and try something different. I love to be in front of the camera; I love performing; I love entertaining. So movies is definitely the next step."

In the meantime, he's prepping for Italy, where "Jersey Shore" will shoot its next season.

"I'm actually gonna get me some Rosetta Stone," The Sitch says. "I got two months to learn it. My name comes from Italy so I've got a little bit of heritage there. Plus maybe I can get a hometown Italian chick."

    Not a reality show fan but don't have to be to know who he is. The popularity of the show's cast is evident with the press they get and guest appearances they have. Mike may be the movie star of tomorrow. Stranger things have happened.

    In a word: IDIOT.
    I've watched several episodes of Jersey Shore and it really stinks. He should count his blessings for the gig he got and move along in life. He's not an actor of any caliber.

    He's already doing an Oscar worthy job of "acting" like a douce everyday of his life. Go ahead and give him a starring role in any unnecessary straight to DVD horror movie remake/sequel/prequel like "Leprechaun In The Hood 3" or "Wishmaster 5: The Situational Prophecy" just so I can watch him get killed on screen.

    @ a real teacher:

    I highly doubt that you are a real teacher, given the fact that you have no concept of capitalization, spelling, grammar, or punctuation.

    That being said, too bad "The Situation" is situating himself into unemployment. That he even THINKS that he is in the same stratosphere as Michael Jordan is downright hilarious!!!

    Before he picks up Rosetta stone to learn another language, learn some grammar first. When he talks he sounds ignorant. "I'm actually gonna get me some Rosetta Stone," The Sitch says. "I got two months to learn it. My name comes from Italy so I've got a little bit of heritage there. Plus maybe I can get a hometown Italian chick."......
    That right there just sounds ignorant. Please he should never compare himself to Michael Jordan. Michael Jordan was talented.

    One: learn how to act first.

    Two: Stop being such an egocentrical jack ass and never ever dare to compare yourself to Michael Jordan ever again.

    Three: Keep your day job. I doubt you'll ever be able to do anything besides your stupid reality show.

    I was hanging with Paulie D over the weekend and he said they have been approached several times by network executives about remaking the 70s classic series Happy Days. This time it would be set in the early 1990s in Newark. The guys would hang out at a pizza parlor, cruise for chicks, and get up to mischief. I think this might be a hit !
