WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena is currently filming his scenes in the new Tina Fey-Amy Poehler comedy, “The Nest,” where he will be playing his first villain role in a movie. Deadline.com reports:
“Wrestling superstar John Cena is dropkicking his way into The Nest, Universal’s Tina Fey-Amy Poehler comedy about two sisters who throw one last party in their parents’ soon-to-be-sold house. Character details are under wraps but I hear the Cenation Leader is playing what could mark his first villain role after spending over a dozen years as the WWE’s All-American hero.”
The movie will document two sisters (Tina Fey and Amy Poehler) who attempt to throw one last party in their childhood home before their parents sell it.
Cena missed the July 21 edition of WWE RAW to film scenes for the movie and will miss at least one more episode of RAW heading into his title defense against Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam on August 17th.
