Chris Jericho Starring In New Movie
Chris Jericho has been confirmed to star in a new film being released later this year, with a sequel already approved.
No stranger to the silver screen, inaugural AEW World Champion Chris Jericho has played a variety of roles but will have to try something very new when he stars in the new film Country Hearts which is due for release this fall.
Written by Jennifer Snow and directed by Marco Deufemia, the film will air on UPtv and there has also been a Christmas special feature confirmed for the future.
The synopsis for the film says it follows “the daughters of country music and rock & roll royalty who find themselves at a crossroads, torn between following their dreams of performing or helping their father run their up-and-coming horse breeding business. Between old flames, new love, best friends and family – they’ll all need the strength of each other to face the next steps.”
Jericho has already commented on his excitement for the role.
After playing evil priests, insane asylum security chiefs, redneck social media whistle blowers and cult leaders, I jumped at the chance to play a nice guy for once in ‘Country Hearts!’ I was able to flex my acting chops and my character range in these movies and it was a blast to play Bones Jamieson…father, ranch owner and rock star…which basically mirrors me in real life!
Back in the world of professional wrestling, Chris Jericho has become a master of reinventing himself similar to playing different movie roles. This has recently drawn praise from a current IMPACT Wrestling star.
With thanks to Variety for the release.
