Former AEW World Champion Chris Jericho is set to star in an upcoming UPtv original movie.
As reported by Variety, Jericho will appear in the TV movie ‘Country Hearts’ .
Per the official description of the movie, the film will follow 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.’
Jericho will play Bones Jamieson, the father of the protagonists.
Commenting on his role, Jericho noted that he’s happy to finally be playing a good guy:
“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.”
Jericho is currently feuding with Adam Cole, who made his wrestling return on the March 29 edition of Dynamite, against Daniel Garcia.
