John Cena has been announced as joining the cast of The Roku Channel comedy Die Hart 2: Die Harder, starring Kevin Hart.

In the series, Hart plays an exaggerated, fictional version of himself who, tired of always being cast as the sidekick and comedy foil, enrolls himself in an action school to become a leading star.   The series was originally part of the now-defunct Quibi.  When all of that content was acquired by Roku, the series was shifted to The Roku Channel and was popular enough to be renewed.

The plot for season two - “After achieving his dream of becoming a bona fide action hero in ‘Die Hart,’ Kevin Hart now wants to cement his legacy as the greatest action star of all time. He’s developed a concept for a revolutionary movie where the action is so unscripted and unexpected that even Kevin won’t know what’s coming next. But Kevin’s myopic dream comes with a blind spot, and he soon finds himself the victim of an evil revenge plot, orchestrated by someone from his past. Kevin must enlist the help of his favorite co-star Jordan King (Nathalie Emmanuel, returning for season 2), his over-eager assistant Andre (Ben Schwartz), Andre’s mom Cynthia (Paula Pell), and legendary Hollywood stuntman Mr. 206 (John Cena) if he wants to survive.”
