John Cena discusses his various roles

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, actor John Cena discussed his forthcoming film Looney Tunes: Coyote vs. Acme. He stated, “Man, I’m very fortunate because it’s a different role for me, so I can’t wait.”

He goes on to say that Peacemaker was a very different job for him, and that he is pleased that Warner Bros. hired him. In addition, he says, “I’m able to do a smaller film called The Independent, which is a different role for me, and Peacemaker has been an entirely different role for me. A lot of audience members have a different perspective of what I can offer and that’s a really tough hill to climb. Coyote vs. Acme is one of those situations. I’m really happy that Warner Bros. gave me another opportunity to be involved with something that.”

He added, “Like I said, it’s a different role for me and hopefully it will have the same result as Peacemaker, it will be a chance to hone my craft on something a little different. I’m really excited for it.” He finished of by saying, “I’m definitely looking forward to it.”

For the uninitiated, the film is directed by Dave Green, and John Cena is cast as the CEO of a law company. For those of you who don’t know Cena is a rapper in addition to his wrestling and acting  profession. He sang Basic Thuganomics, his sixth WWE theme song, which was included on the WWE Originals soundtrack CD. He also recorded Untouchables for WWE ThemeAddict: The Music, Vol. 6, the company’s next soundtrack album. Along with Murs, E-40, and Chingo Bling, he worked on a remix for the song H-U-S-T-L-E.
