- As noted, WWE Hall of Famer Adam "Edge" Copeland will be starring as supervillain Atom Smasher on CW's The Flash. Copeland spoke to Zap2it about the role and wrestlers receiving more and more television and movie roles.
"When you get on set, that's when people notice," he said. "Every single person I've spoken with who has dealt with a former wrestler has raved over the idea that we're so immediately credible. Because on WWE, you're flying without a net. You have to ad-lib, you have to be ready for anything; it's like theater in the round, being caught by 8 different camera angles at the same time."
- As noted, The Rock will be doing voice work for the character Maui and signing in Disney's upcoming musical, Moana. Rock noted on Instagram that the lead role of the Princess was cast today:
IT'S OFFICIAL: After months and months of worldwide casting calls, we've finally found our next DISNEY Princess... #MOANA. I'm pumped to welcome 14yr old @AuliiCravalho of Mililani, Hawaii to our project. What's amazing about this story is that she didn't think she was good enough so she never auditioned. Fortunately, one of our Oahu casting agents discovered her singing at a charity competition and the rest is history. * An awesome lesson to all young kids out there... work hard, have confidence in yourselves and never think you're not good enough because you never know what the future holds. Congratulations Auli'i! Can't wait to work with you and watch you bring this new Disney Princess to life. #YesThatsMeOnTheRight #HisNameIsMaui #HesADemiGod #AndHePutsMoanaInHerPlace #SoHeThinks #DisneyAnimation #MOANA #TimeToSing
