It’s something new for him. Wrestlers have a weird relationship with acting, as while they are acting on a wrestling show, they are always seen as wrestlers instead of actors. There are some wrestlers who are very talented at acting though and occasionally you will see someone trying their hand at acting in a bigger way. That seems to be the case again with an AEW star.

AEW’s Brian Pillman Jr. has announced that he will be appearing in the upcoming movie the Charisma Killers, joking that he has graduated from Varsity Blond to Hollywood Blond. This is Pillman’s first acting role, though there is no word on when or where the film will debut. Former WWE and Impact Wrestling star Jesse McKay will also appear in the film, which is directed by Michael Matteo Rossi.

The news that I was excited to share with you all today! Just landed my first acting role! I guess you could say I graduated from Varsity Blond to Hollywood Blond!!! ????

Opinion: This isn’t something I would have bet on seeing but good for Pillman for getting to do something like this. A lot of wrestlers have tried their hand at acting and come up short but maybe he has found something that he can make work. Pillman has shown some charisma on AEW TV and maybe that can translate into something on screen. It is easier said than done, but he might be able to pull it off.

What do you think of Pillman? How will he do as an actor? Let us know in the comments below.
