Cody Rhodes to appear in Naked Gun

Cody Rhodes has officially been cast in the Naked Gun reboot. 

Deadline reported the Undisputed WWE Champion was one of four new additions to the cast, joining Liza Koshy, CCH Pounder, and Busta Rhymes. Cody's role in the movie will reportedly only be a cameo. 

The Naked Gun reboot, earmarked for a July 18, 2025 release, will star Liam Neeson, Pamela Anderson, Paul Walter Hauser, Kevin Durand, and Danny Huston. Liam Neeson will portray Detective Frank Debrin with Paul Walter Hauser as his partner, Ed. 

While he is primarily known for his exploits inside the squared circle, Cody Rhodes has done acting before on The CW's Arrow. 

Rhodes has been Undisputed WWE Champion since defeating Roman Reigns in the main event of WrestleMania 40 on April 7. WWE's original plan for the Mania main event was Roman Reigns vs. The Rock and Brian Gewirtz recently claimed that the company's plans for Cody would have been "hated more than anything in life itself" by many. 

Cody Rhodes will be in action this weekend when he defends the Undisputed WWE Title against Logan Paul at King and Queen of the Ring in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on Saturday, May 25.
