Los Angeles - But, soft! What light through yonder window breaks? It's wrestling legend Jake

The Snake!!! Because he's a freaking actor now!!!

Snake (real name Aurelian Smith Jnr) has struggled with drug and alcohol addiction for decades - but his rep tells TMZ, the 57-year-old has been sober for over 180 days . . . and has decided to kick start his life by embarking on a new career . . . as a thespian.

The rep says Jake has just started acting classes last week - and hasn't locked down an agent yet - but he's already been offered part in an independent film (probably playing some gruff old dude with a moustache).

Once Jake gets into the swing of things, we're told he's also planning to go on tons of auditions very soon . . .  TV, commercials, movies, you name it.

FYI, Jake and fellow wrestling legend/recovering addict Scott Hall are currently living with former wrestler Diamond Dallas Page, who has converted his Atlanta home into a kind of sober living facility.
Pretty cool.
