After working on the new comedy Blockers, it appears that Ike Barinholtz has himself a new man-crush. Now that he’s met John Cena and found out what he’s really like, Barinholtz says he’s the real deal — and he wants to work with him again… and again… and again.

Playing an over protective dad who doesn’t want his daughter to go all the way in Blockers is obviously played for comedy, and WWE icon John Cena has the chops and charisma to play such a scene stealing role. Carving out an action/dramatic career earlier in his career with The Marine and 12 Rounds, Cena proved his acting versatility in comedy with the Daddy’s Home features, and now he’s front and center with Blockers. Receiving excellent word of mouth, the comedy should have a strong run at the box office.
Though the 40-year-old is still not a father, he admits that a bit of maturity has led him to appreciate the perspective (and unconditional love) doled out by parents (click on the media bar to hear Cena talk about parenthood):
Blockers, co-starring Leslie Mann and directed byPitch Perfect 3 scribe Kay Cannon, opens nationwide April 6.
John Cena came to Hollywood carrying a tough-guy persona honed through years on the WWE circuit. Somewhat surprisingly, though, he loves doing comedy, like in his new movie, Blockers. When we talked to him, Cena said he understands there are a lot of laughs to be had from making fun of that tough-guy image, and he’s fine with that. (Click on the media bar below to hear John Cena)
