WWE's John Cena joins Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's comedy The Nest

When he's not playing the millennial Hulk Hogan in the ring, John Cena tries to pop in to Hollywood every so often and make something happen. He's actually pretty busy with some upcoming roles; he's set to star in two big comedies over the next year. John Cena has signed on to appear in THE NEST, a comedy headlined by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. The lovely ladies will reunite as sisters who decide to throw one last house party in their parents' home before it sells. It's like the big screen version of at least one episode of every sitcom of the '90s.

There is talk that John Cena is set to play the bad guy (a heel if you will) in the movie. Will he be an unwanted guest who doesn’t use a coaster? What about an angry neighbor trying to get some sleep? We wait on baited breath to find out. Cena is also going to star in the Judd Apatow-helmed TRAINWRECK written by Amy Schumer in another undisclosed role.

While I don’t think Cena will reach the heights of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, you can’t hate the guy. As bad as THE MARINE and 12 ROUNDS were, outside the ring and away from the camera, Cena plays a huge part in Make-A-Wish Foundation. He grants wishes for kids who want to meet him almost daily. Much respect right there.

Also starring is James Brolin who is set to play the father of Poehler and Fey, and fellow Saturday Night Live alum Maya Rudolph will be a childhood friend. THE NEST will open on December 18th, 2015.

Extra Tidbit: John Cena holds the title for most wishes granted by a single individual, with over 450 wishes.

Used to be a great heel. So him as a villain? Maybe...

Never touch aThe Rock

I have a love/hate relationship with Cena the wrestler. But what he attempts to do in film I think eventually he could be a more charismatic Dave Bautista. Also, much respect for his charity work. The man has no off season like many pro athletes. I dare one of them to commit to such a schedule as many as these wrestlers who are paid a fraction of many pros in any sport.

Never saw 12 rounds, but thought the Marine was a pretty good action film, gave Michael Bay a run for his money in the explosions department.

I'm looking forward to this. Big fan of Tina Fey and Amy Pohler. Besides, John Cena is okay for comedy movie. His role in Psych a couple of years ago wasn't bad at all.

This guy's acting leaves a whole lot to be desired.

I personally cannot stand Cena in the WWE, but I could see him playing Feys brother, maybe one of their evil "exs" or something like that.

Big fan of Cena

However, it will be hard seeing him as a bad guy in any way shape or form, seeing how he hasn't been one in the ring in years. He's the WWE's Superman. I dunno. We'll see. The guy is a great actor and overall a stand up guy. I have no problem with this.
