He’s beaten John Cena at WrestleMania. He’s the first two-time Grand Slam Champion in WWE history. He’s the star of the hit television series: Miz and Mrs. He’s The Miz. You may also know him as the Hollywood A-lister given the success he’s had in the showbiz.
The Miz has become somewhat of a top guy at WWE Studios, replacing John Cena as the face of the production house following his full-time transition to Hollywood. In addition to acting in company-produced movies, The Miz has also starred in numerous television series.
These are his best acting roles in movies and television.
The Marine 3: Homefront (2013)
The original Marine had John Cena as the lead. Vince McMahon wrote off Cena with a controversial stabbing angle in 2004 because he had to film the movie. The Marine was released in 2006 to largely negative reviews.
The Miz joined the franchise in 2013 as the lead actor in The Marine 3: Homefront. This was the first of Miz’s four Marine films. Although the film was considered subpar by critics, The Miz did something right as he ended up taking over The Marine franchise as its face.
Santa’s Little Helper (2015)
Santa’s Little Helper saw the ‘A-Lister’ play Dax; a materialistic corporate businessman whose greedy ambitions cost him almost everything in his life.
The movie also starred former WWE star Paige (better known as Saraya), as well as AnnaLynne McCord. Miz’s future wife and WWE star Maryse also makes a cameo as Melody.
The Miz was pretty convincing in his lead character role, to say the least.
Scooby-Doo! and WWE: Curse of the Speed Demon (2016)
The success of Scooby-Doo! WrestleMania Mystery enabled Warner Bros. Animation and WWE Studious to collaborate on a sequel. The joint production resulted in the creation of Scooby-Doo! and WWE: Curse of the Speed Demon.
Like the original, the sequel saw many WWE superstars lend their voices. The Miz, Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, and The Undertaker were among the superstars who voiced themselves in this 2016 animated comedy mystery film.
Following his career-defining WrestleMania win over John Cena, The Miz dipped his toe back into the small screen pool.
One of his brief appearances was on the USA Network hit series Psych. The A-lister appeared as Mario in Season 6, Episode 12, titled “Shawn and the Real Girl.”
Also, he got to use his Skull Crushing Finale during the episode.
This superhit television series is known for its star-studded cameos among other things. Season 11 of the series, which came out in 2016, saw The Miz join the illustrious list of guest stars that have appeared on Supernatural.
The former WWE Champion played Shawn Harley, an up-and-coming heel in the fictional Top Notch Wrestling promotion, who becomes the prime suspect in a case to bust demo smugglers.
The episode is aptly titled “Beyond the Mat.” The Miz was simply brilliant as the conniving Shawn Harley who, despite his opportunistic and selfish antics inside the ring, refused to sell his soul for championship glory.
