Additionally, there was discussion about Rhodes being connected to a possible upcoming Legend of Zelda movie.

Rhodes has had longstanding connections in Hollywood, having previously landed roles on shows such as Arrow and Warehouse 13. He has also appeared on unscripted shows such as The Go Big Show, Rhodes to the Top, and WAGS Atlanta.
