John Cena Was Told To Reject His Barbie Cameo

John Cena Was Told To Reject His Barbie Cameo 2

John Cena’s «Barbie» cameo stemmed from having friends in high places and simply being in the right place at the right time. In an interview with «TODAY,» he spoke about how a chance encounter with Margot Robbie led to him being cast as the hunky merman, even though he was filming another tentpole project at the time.

«We literally randomly ran into each other as friends. ‘Fast X’ was filming across the street from ‘Barbie.’ And [she asked], ‘Why don’t you do «Barbie?»‘ I said, ‘I’ve been trying!’ And Margot makes a lot of the decisions for that, and I said, ‘Well, I’ll do whatever you need.'»

Cena also noted that «Barbie» shares similarities with «Fast X,» so jumping from the action movie to the comedy wasn’t as massive a leap as it might seem. He said both flicks have excellent casts, and he was willing to join Greta Gerwig’s comedy in any capacity just so that he could be part of the ensemble. Fortunately, it all worked out in the end, and Cena can now brag about having yet another hit on his resume.
