A top AEW star has revealed that they’re going to be starring in an upcoming project for Hallmark after a indie horror movie sparked interest.
The Hallmark Channel are renowned for romance, comedy and family movies, describing themselves as “the Heart of TV.”
It might come as a surprise that a channel that doesn’t have a pro-wrestling or horror fan demographic has interested in a top AEW star, and Chris Jericho was certainly surprised at the offer.
Speaking on The Sessions with Renee Paquette, Jericho said:
“I did a movie a few years ago called Terrifier 2. This movie came out in the fall and Art The Clown is the big killer. It’s so violent, it was in theaters for one day.
“Somebody threw up, that got around, this thing ended up being in theaters for a month and it ended up making $10 million on a $200,000 budget.
“I was in this movie, I was a big fan of Terrifier 1, and I was in Terrifier 2.”
Jericho would then go on to explain the offer he had subsequently received, explaining:
“I was just reading an offer, which as you know in Hollywood, an offer means they’re giving you the part, for a Hallmark movie.
“How the f*ck am I in a Hallmark movie? How did Terrifier 2 lead to a Hallmark movie? ‘Well, he did pretty good in that.’
“The point is, why wouldn’t I do it because it might lead to something else.
“‘I want to be a Hollywood movie star,’ no, but I like acting and if the Hallmark channel calls, why wouldn’t I give it a try?”
Over the years, Jericho has acted before and appeared in the Jay & Silent Bob Reboot in 2019, MacGruber and Sharnado 3: Oh Hell No! among other projects.
