The Miz To Replace Randy Orton In Lead Role Of “The Marine: Homefront”

The Miz will replace Randy Orton in the upcoming WWE Studios production “The Marine: Homefront.”

Orton was originally cast for the film but was removed from the lead role after outrage due to his dishonorable discharge from the United States Marines Corps.

The film is about a Marine trying to rescue his kidnapped from a terrorist. The film is WWE’s third installment of The Marine franchise and will begin filming in Vancouver this June.

  • AJG316

    Really, the miz in the marine. Well they had Ted dibiase jr in the marine so why not. I wouldn't be surprised if they think they can put any random wwe superstar in that movie

  • thatguy

    Thank you for posting this. I'm tired of reading from dumb marks how Cena is "hurt" to go film this movie

  • skeeber04

    AAAWWWEEESSSOOOMMMEEE!!!!!!!!!

  • Patrick_OToole

    So these two things will happen to The Miz now –
    1) He will need to be "injured" in the next month to go film this movie.
    2) When he returns he will battle Cena for the right to salute and wear camo jorts to the ring.

      i have a feeling mike isnt going to be a good guy, especially when cena is back.

  • YES! YES! YES!

    Yay Miz!

  • AnacondaVise

    It's not like he is doing anything worth writing home about in WWE anyways… And for the record I'm a Miz fan but he has been just another body for awhile now.

  • evangrove

    Oh yeah cause he is just going to be wonderful as a respected marine with his faux hawk and asking really really all the time. Thank you WWE, not so much.
    Worst film they will come out with, guarantee it.

  • JakShowtime

    That'll put butts in seats…

  • Joe

    Noooooooo

  • Joker

    His kidnapped what ? You left a little something out.
    Why was Randy dishonorably discharged?

    • Chris

      Watch his DVD. Evolution of a viper. He himself will tell you

  • nails

    The Miz will do a great job imo. Mike is born to be an entertainer! Kudos to him.

  • Bob

    This is a chance for Miz to show what he can do in a much more serious role. Don’t blow this oppurtunity Mike this is your chance to prove the haters wrong.

  • Luda

    I would rather see michael cole or anyone else in this movie then The Miz lol

  • steve2

    Nice to finally see orton held accountable for something

  • Marcella

    Now they can call it "Police Academy" instead of Marine 2

  • Kris

    The Miz as a Marine? Are they even trying any more? Why don't you cast Daniel Bryan as a cattle rancher in a movie while you're at it? Better yet, the Undertaker as a wedding planner? Orton is still ten times the marine he is, past mistakes aside.

  • lexapexpredator

    Miz, stole, Randy Orton's, EFFING MOVIE SPOT! GAH THIS IS AN OUTRAGE! Dishonorable discharge or not, Orton is 3 times more the actor than Miz is. I like Miz and all but Randy is my favorite WWE superstar. Randy should be put in for the lead.
