John Cena Talks More about Trainwreck, Looking for “Challenging” Acting Roles Beyond WWE


John Cena revealed he’s looking for more acting projects outside of WWE Studios. Here are highlights:

On doing more than WWE
I’ve been actively trying to extend my reach beyond WWE. I wanted to do some non-action related projects, stuff that will resonate with different audiences who might not know who I am.

On being different from his WWE character
I can’t believe I’m actually saying this, but there is a difference between the John Cena character you see on television and me as a human being. A role like I had on Parks and Rec, to me is very easy to understand and that’s something that I can do with my eyes closed. But these other projects that have come up are more challenging, and in a good way.

On improving in Trainwreck
They gave me a lot of liberty to think of who this guy really was. A lot of what you see on screen is completely improv. I have zero experience in that field and truly I’m learning as I go and never once did they make me feel out of place or as if I was holding up production or anything like that. Judd and Amy never once made it intimidating.
