Many professional wrestlers have attempted to make the jump from the ring to the big screen, but have met with limited success. Swayne Johnson stands as a notable recent exception to the rule, successfully shedding his wrestling persona of The Rock to steadily build himself up through leading roles in action films such as The Rundown and family-friendly fare such as Race to Witch Mountain. His newest feature, titled Snitch, falls more in the former category. Directed and co-written by stuntman turned filmmaker Ric Roman Waugh, the film also stars Susan Sarandon, Jon Bernthal, Harold Perrineau, Michael K. Williams, Barry Pepper, and Benjamin Bratt. The Superbowl trailer for the film has now been released, and can be seen below.
