Our family enjoys seeing a good family movie together. My daughter (Chloe’s World of Play), after seeing previews, which she said are hilarious, was excited to attend an advance screening of Playing with Fire starring her favorite wrestler/actor, John Cena, along with Keegan-Michael Key, John Leguizamo and more.

The kids asked some tough questions to the cast in attendance, which included Christian Convery, Keegan-Michael Key, John Cena, Finley Rose Slater, and Director Andy Fickman. Questions that would help us understand why the movie was created, past experiences that helped the actors play their role well, which scene was the hardest to make, and more! These kids were on point!
Speaking of the hardest scenes to make, Chloe’s World of Play asked the Playing with Fire cast, “What was the hardest scene to make in the movie?” to which, to her surprise, John Cena replied. Can you imagine? Yes, she kept her composure.

John Cena: And, I was supposed to just stand there like I was being a parent and she was being scolded. And he’s incredibly funny. So, he made me laugh so many, so many, so many times. So, it wasn’t like oh, this is hard work. But it was impossible for me to keep a straight face, which was most of the time when he was doing his thing and I had to stand there and look like I was important and tough. So, that was…that was difficult.
