Cody Rhodes Lands Role In Upcoming Movie WWE

Undisputed WWE Champion Cody Rhodes has been confirmed for a role in an upcoming movie project.

As reported by Deadline, The American Nightmare has been confirmed for a role in Paramount’s Naked Gun reboot.

It’s not yet clear exactly what Rhodes’ role will be in the film, however, according to Deadline’s report the WWE star will only be featuring as a cameo appearance rather than a major role.

Also confirmed to be appearing alongside Rhodes is legendary rapper Busta Rhymes, Liza Koshy and CCH Pounder, who join the likes of Liam Neeson, Pamela Anderson and other notable names previously announced for the movie.

Rhodes’ most well known acting role up to now had been in the TV series Arrow starring Stephen Amell, where he played Derek Sampson – appearing in seven episodes between 2016-2018.

While his role in Naked Gun will further increase Rhodes’ profile in Hollywood, the Undisputed WWE Champion’s current attention will no doubt be on United States Champion Logan Paul – with Rhodes defending his title at King & Queen of the Ring in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on May 25.
