WWE has dropped Randy Orton from "The Marine: Homefront", which was slated to begin filming this June in Vancouver, British Columbia following complaints that Orton, who went AWOL from the Marines and was dishonorably discharged.

A WWE representative told TMZ.com:

"WWE demonstrated poor judgment in signing Randy Orton for the 3rd installment of the film. Despite Randy’s popularity, the fact that he was dishonorably discharged from the USMC made it inappropriate for him to be cast in this film."

Marines, including some who served in Orton's former unit, complained about the casting.
