Edge is getting back to acting.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians, which is a Disney+ series, has added three actors to the cast as first reported by Variety.

The site notes that one of the three actors added to the cast is WWE Hall of Famer Adam Copeland (Edge). Copeland, Suzanne Cryer and Jessica Parker Kennedy will join the series regulars.

Copeland is going to play a recurring guest star role as ‘Ares’, the God of war. The character synopsis for Ares is described as followed:

Ares is described as “handsome in a wicked way and arrogant, despite not always being the sharpest tool in the shed. He loves conflict and acts as an agent of chaos wherever he goes.”

Edge is being represented by OAZ and A3 Artists Agency. At the Extreme Rules Premium Live Event, Edge lost to Finn Balor in an ‘I Quit’ match. Edge said ‘I Quit’ in hopes of preventing Rhea Ripley from hitting Beth Phoenix in the back of her head with a chair. Edge gave in but Ripley did it anyway.

Nice! Love seeing wrestlers get roles outside of wrestling. I won’t watch lol, but glad he got the role.
