Welcome to the latest installment of
OFF-TRACK with A-TRAIN
you should know the drill by now.
John Cena has just been cast in yet another film, which is hardly surprising at this point.
Deadline reports that Cena is going to be in Daddy's Home 2, reprising his cameo role at the end of the first movie. It will be a bigger part this time around.
He joins Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Mel Gibson, John Lithgow, Linda Cardellini, Owen Vaccaro and Scarlett Estevez in the Paramount comedy. In the sequel, father and stepfather, Dusty (Wahlberg) and Brad (Ferrell), are now working together to give their kids a perfect Christmas. When Dusty’s Dad (Gibson) and Brad’s Dad (Lithgow) arrive, their blended family conflicts rise to the surface. Cena’s character shifts the macho dynamics as Dusty faces the challenges of being a stepfather in the face of a more ripped rival.
Cena is already taking time off after Mania to film The Pact, and it's said that production will begin soon on Daddy's Home 2.
While some may balk at Cena's part-timer status, this is good news for two reasons.
1.) It gives more ammunition to The Miz for more Talking Smack appearances, and that's always a good thing. Check out him running down Cena in the video at the top of the screen and see if you don't agree.
2.) It means John Cena is going to end up as a guest on more talk shows, which means we get more of this:
and also this:
So go, John Cena.
Go do your Hollywooding.
We'll be here when you get back.
And in the meantime, let him have it, Miz.
With both barrels.
