John Cena Cast In 'Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'

The 40-year-old WWE star made several big announcements on Thursday-including the fact that he'll be hosting the Kids' Choice Awards for the second year in a row. Cena tested incredibly well with audiences for the "Daddy's Home" and "Daddy's Home 2" movies and with a sizable increase in male viewership for the Kids' Choice Awards, among boys 6-11 years of age, bringing Cena back this year was a no-brainer. Cena also announced that he will voice the Baron Draxum character in the network's "Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles".

John Cena is beloved by kids everywhere.

No word on whether Cena will be shown in front of the camera on his gameshow.

Cena will also take on the role of executive producer for the brand-new competition series Keep It Spotless, which will also debut later this year.

The show will air live from The Forum in Inglewood, California on March 24. Additional Kids' Choice Awards news, including categories and presenters, will be announced in the coming weeks. That character, Baron Draxum, is described as "an alchemist warrior mutant who seeks to turn all of humanity into mutants", and will appear in the premiere before recurring throughout the first season. The new Ninja Turtles series follows the four mutant brothers "as they encounter new mutants and villains and discover a mystical world they never knew existed beneath the streets of New York City".

Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is co-executive produced by Andy Suriano (character designer, Samurai Jack) and Ant Ward (supervising producer, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) at Nickelodeon in Burbank, Calif. After each game, a 360-degree scanner will measure each teams' mess to determine just how clean they really are.
