When Stephen Amell decided to end his star-making turn as the titular character on “Arrow,” I wondered what was next. I thought movies for sure, maybe even something different like romantic comedy. Well, I couldn’t have been more wrong. Apparently, Amell is moving from TV superhero, to TV wrestler. This isn’t the first time, he’s dabbled in this arena (no pun intended). Back in 2015, he actually wrestled on a WWE pay-per-view with Cody Rhodes, and I guess the bug hit.
“In this life, you’re either the hero or the heel.” That’s the statement made in this first trailer for the Starz series, “Heels” set to air this summer. For those not in the know, “heels” are villains in wrestling terminology. Amell stars with “Vikings” alum Alexander Ludwig as brothers looking to resurrect their father’s pro wrestling business.
