WWE WrestleMania 40 Sunday featured Cody Rhodes dethroning Roman Reigns as the Undisputed Universal Champion, clearly he also has other things scheduled now as he is set to star in a reboot for ‘Naked Gun.’

According to The Daily Mail, Cody Rhodes is set to make his film debut in the upcoming reboot of the classic comedy “The Naked Gun,” alongside notable stars like Pamela Anderson and Liam Neeson. Rhodes will be making a cameo appearance, with insiders hinting at a potential hypnotism scene that pays homage to the original 1988 comedy.

”Cody may be having a huge feud with The Rock [Dwayne Johnson] in the WWE ring right now but it looks like the battle will extend to Hollywood as he is going to star in the new Naked Gun film.”

The new movie, which continues the popular “Naked Gun” film franchise originally starring Leslie Nielsen, is expected to blend comedy with action, with Liam Neeson leading the cast. While Rhodes’ role may be brief, insiders have revealed that it is important to the overall story of the film.


Rhodes has prior acting experience, having appeared in TV series such as “Arrow” and “Warehouse 13,” but this film marks his first significant role on the big screen. According to an insider source, Rhodes is excited about the opportunity and intends to bring humor to his part. There’s even speculation that he could end up playing himself in the movie, adding to the comedic potential.

Directed by Akiva Schaffer and featuring a script written by the creative team behind the live-action “Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers,” the new “Naked Gun” movie aims to capture the spirit of the original while updating it for modern audiences. Although details about the plot remain scarce, the insider indicated that Rhodes’ cameo would nod to the original’s hypnotism plotline, which involved businessman Vincent Ludwig, played by Ricardo Montalbán, using hypnosis to control others.
