Manning voices Guapo the bull. Guapo (meaning handsome in Spanish) acts like he’s brimming with confidence but under that brash exterior, he’s really a bundle of nerves.
Manning not only shares a film with Cena but plenty more as these two athletes, entertainers, businessmen and all-around good guys have much in common.

About the movie Ferdinand
“Ferdinand” tells the story of a giant bull with a big heart. After being mistaken for a dangerous beast, he is captured and torn from his home. Determined to return to his family, he rallies a misfit team on the ultimate adventure. Set in Spain, Ferdinand proves you can’t judge a bull by its cover.
The movie is from Blue Sky Studios and Carlos Saldanha, the director of “Rio” and inspired by the beloved book “The Story of Ferdinand” by Munro Leaf and Robert Lawson.
