Both Liv Morgan and Samoa Joe land roles.
‘Deadline’ broke the news that WWE’s Liv Morgan is scheduled to make her film debut in ‘The Kill Room’. It is described as a ‘darkly comic thriller’ and she’ll be joining a cast that features Samuel L. Jackson and Uma Thurman. Here is a write-up of the film synopsis which includes Morgan’s role:
The film centers on hitman Reggie (Manganiello), his boss (Jackson), an art dealer (Thurman) and their money laundering scheme that accidentally turns the hitman into an overnight Avant-Garde sensation, forcing the dealer to play the art world against the underworld. Morgan will play an art purist who bemoans the vapidness of art dealers.
Morgan is represented by APA, WWE and Fox Rothschild.
AEW’s Samoa Joe is going to play the dual role of ‘Sweet Tooth’ in Peacock’s ‘Twisted Metal’ which is voiced by Will Arnett. Deadline published the following about the series:
Sweet Tooth is described as a hilarious and terrifying hulk of a man, who is as emotional as he is cunning. A lover of chaos, this majestic rage-filled killer dons an ever-smiling clown mask and uses “Lost Vegas” as his own personal kill-ground, all while he drives his infamous doomsday ice cream truck.
Joe has done voice acting work in the past, lending his voice to the ‘Kingshark’ and ‘Predaking’ characters.
