John Cena to swap WWE for Hollywood after landing movie role

Published Add your comment

John Cena is set to swap the WWE for the movie screen after being cast in Judd Apatow's latest movie 'Trainwreck'.

Details are limited at present, but the WWE superstar has been mentioned alongside a host of established Hollywood names in recent reports.

Actor Ezra Miller and Saturday Night Live cast member Vannesa Bayer are rumored to be in talks to join the comedy production.

While Tilda Swinton and oscar nominated 'Captain Phillips' star Barkhad Abdi are also expected to play a part.

Cena is more used to performing in the ring in front of thousands of wrestling fans, but he does have some experience in the acting world - most recently starring in the 'Fred' trilogy of TV-movies.

This would certainly mark his most convincing move into the movie business however.

And while his involvement in the project is unlikely to impact too heavily on his role as one of the biggest stars in the WWE could this be the start of Cena following Dwayne Johnson to Hollywood?
