Casting the Miz as the lead in The Marine 3 is an unwise move.
WWE Studios announced that the former WWE champion would be starring as a heroic solider in the upcoming film, the third in the series.
John Wayne playing Genghis Khan in The Conqueror is still the worst, most misguided casting job in movie history, but the boyish Miz as a Marine isn't far behind.
There's no doubt WWE believes in the Miz's crossover appeal.
Many fans were first introduced to him during his reality TV days on The Real World and Real World/Road Rules Challenge.
He's a charismatic, good-looking, funny guy that could very well make it in movies. He just needs a role that suits him better.
