Career[edit]

When director Nancy Meyers was casting What Women Want, her daughter recognized Feuerstein from Practical Magic (1998), and insisted that her mother cast him. Feuerstein reunited as a love interest with Practical Magic co-star, Sandra Bullock, in the film Two Weeks Notice, but his scenes were later deleted.

During the match he performed a variant of Scotty 2 Hotty's Worm on a prone Virgil to claim the win.

Personal life[edit]

Feuerstein was born in New York City, the son of Audrey, a school teacher, and Harvey Feuerstein, a lawyer.[4] He was raised in a Jewish family and celebrated becoming a Bar Mitzvah in an Orthodox synagogue.[5] He was a wrestler in high school and won the state championship.
