- WWE star Santino Marella says he will be starring in a new sitcom on WWE.com featuring Beth Phoenix as his live-in girlfriend and Kozlov playing his best friend.
In an interview with IGN.com, Santino explained that if the show is successful, he intends to spend more time focusing on acting than wrestling.
“I was always the class clown, the comedian. And combine that with 20 years of grappling and you put that together and you get Santino. I think the transition will be easy. I’d say I’m more of an actor actually than a wrestler. I did a pilot already. When I presented it to the office, I did a pilot and it was really fun to do. It’s a really natural transition for me.”
Shooting begins this month at his home in Tampa, FL with hopes of shopping the show around to television networks after the first “online” season.
