Cena Joins Gibson In ‘Daddy’s Home’ Sequel

Deadline reports that John Cena has signed on to co-star in Daddy’s Home 2, the sequel to the 2015 movie.

The comedy also stars Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Mel Gibson, John Lithgow and others. According to Deadline, the movie follows “father and stepfather, Dusty (Wahlberg) and Brad (Ferrell), who are now working together to give their kids a perfect Christmas. When Dusty’s Dad (Gibson) and Brad’s Dad (Lithgow) arrive, their blended family conflicts rise to the surface. Cena’s character shifts the macho dynamics as Dusty faces the challenges of being a stepfather in the face of a more ripped rival.”

The first Daddy’s Home was a big hit, earning over $150 million in the U.S., three times its budget.  It was reasonably entertaining but hardly a classic.  The best scene probably was probably Wahlberg’s alpha male douche being upstaged by the super alpha male Cena character at the end…

He’s got… legs for arms…
