Wrestler John Cena will play the villain in The Nest, the previously reported Tina Fey-Amy Poehler comedy that also stars Ike Barinholtz, John Leguizamo, Maya Rudolph, and James Brolin. The Cenation leader has long been a WWE hero, but here he’ll put on the black hat to antagonize Fey and Poehler’s estranged sisters, who throw one last party at their parents’ old house.
The Nest isn’t Cena’s first acting role, thankfully. He starred in 2006’s The Marine, 2009’s 12 Rounds, 2010’s Legendary, and even tried comedy as Fred’s dad in all three Fred movies. He’s also currently filming Trainwreck, the new Amy Schumer movie directed by Judd Apatow.
