We’ve been following Cody Rhodes quite a bit since his exit from WWE to see where he lands. We know about his pro wrestling commitments, but at Saturday’s “Heroes and Villains Fan Fest” in New Jersey, it was announced that he has landed a guest star role in the show “Arrow.”
Actor Stephen Amell appeared, along with Rhodes and his wife Brandi, to make the announcement. Amell had this to say:
“Before we get going, we have an announcement. We have a new guest star on Arrow this year: Mr. Cody Rhodes. I’m so fired up for this guy; he and I haven’t really had much of a chance to talk about it but we’ve been friends for a little over a year now. I know that Cody has really wanted to get into the acting business. He went to LA, he read for a part, and his deal closed yesterday and the dude is going to be on Arrow and I’m so fired up.”
Rhodes also took to Twitter and addressed the announcement briefly as shown below:
No word right now as to what kind of character Rhodes will be playing, but production will be starting sometime next week.
