John Cena reveals How He Got a Role in Margot Robbie’s ‘Barbie’

John Cena: According to the actor, “they asked me if I wanted to be a merman” in Barbie, and he promptly accepted.

John Cena can explain how he became a member of the Barbie cast.

During an appearance on Today earlier this week to promote Fast X, the actor, 46, told the story of how he ended up with a role in the upcoming Margot Robbie film, calling it a “happy accident” that he “kind of” pitched himself.

“I think Barbie and Fast X share a lot of parallels. Their cast lists are amazing… So with a lot of opportunity, it was a chance for maybe to, ‘Hey, would you guys be willing to have me if I could do something?’ ” John Cena told.

“In an accidental run-in with Margot Robbie, I said, ‘I will pretty much do whatever you guys need, ’cause I really enjoy the movie.’ And they asked me if I wanted to be a merman. I said yeah, sure,” he recalled.

John Cena, who worked on The Suicide Squad with Robbie, stated the incident happened when they “literally randomly ran into each other as friends,” while Fast X was filming “across the street” from Barbie.

Dua Lipa also appears in Barbie as a mermaid, with a star-studded ensemble that includes: Ryan Gosling, Kate McKinnon, Will Ferrell, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Scott Evans, Simu Liu, Ncuti Gatwa, Hari Nef, Emma Mackey, Anna Cruz Kayne, Sharon Rooney, Issa Rae, Nicola Coughlan, Alexandra Shipp, Ritu Arya, Emerald Fennell, Michael Cera, America Ferrera, Ariana Greenblatt, Connor Swindells and Jamie Demetriou. Helen Mirren is the narrator.

Last year, John Cena spoke British GQ about transitioning from WWE to Hollywood.

“The term Hollywood has such a mystique and luster around it. If you’re skilled at doing one thing, and then you transition into doing another — really, it sounds the same, but it’s a completely different thing,” he said.

“If you have any chance of success, you have to really, really prepare as much as you can. And if you feel you don’t have a head start, you’ve just got to put rubber to the road and work your ass off. So that’s kind of where I’m at, dipping my toes back into the screen side of entertainment rather than live events.”

John Cena added, “And I realize I’ve got my work to do, and I’m just trying to work as hard as I can to catch up to everybody else.”
