ohn Cena is an actor, producer, host, entrepreneur and WWE Superstar. He stars in the upcoming action thriller “The Wall,” directed by Doug Liman and co-starring Golden Globe winner Aaron Taylor-Johnson.

He’s also set to star alongside Leslie Mann and Ike Barinholtz in the comedy “The Pact,” scheduled for release in 2018.
Cena has received much attention for his role opposite Amy Schumer in Judd Apatow’s hit comedy, “Trainwreck”; with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler in “Sisters”; and in a cameo role in the Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg comedy “Daddy’s Home.” He will reprise his role in the upcoming “Daddy’s Home 2,” which will be released later this year. This Christmas, he will voice the title role of “Ferdinand the Bull” in “Ferdinand,” the animated film based on the iconic children’s book.
In addition to serving as host and executive producer of FOX’s AMERICAN GRIT, Cena hosted cable’s “2017 Kids’ Choice Awards,” TEEN CHOICE 2016, the 2016 ESPY Awards and “Saturday Night Live.” He also will executive-produce the new streaming series “Dallas and Robo,” in which he will voice the lead character. Additionally, he has an upcoming role in the cable mockumentary “Tour de Pharmacy,” starring Andy Samberg.
Cena devotes much of his time working on behalf of numerous charitable causes. He is Make-A-Wish’s most requested wish-granter of all time and the only celebrity to grant 500 wishes. He also is committed to Susan G. Komen and its support of breast cancer research and awareness and has helped raise more than $1.6 million for SGK.
