Update (2/28) - To celebrate Roman Reigns guest starring on Nickelodeon's Cousins for Life, TheWrap has unveiled a super sneak-peek of Roman making his debut on the show, which you can watch in the awesome video below! In the sneak-peek, Reigns rocks a completely manly Pomeranian in a Baby Bjorn:

Reigns (real name Joe Anoa’i) has been off WWE television since announcing on Monday, October 22, 2018 that his leukemia had returned and relinquishing the Universal Championship. His Cousins for Life role marks his first television appearance since announcing the news.

The Nickelodeon spot is not The Big Dog's only upcoming acting role. It was revealed last month that Reigns has a role as Hobbs' brother in the Fast and the Furious spinoff "Hobbs & Shaw." Hobbs is played by Reigns' cousin Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who stars alongside Jason Statham in the movie. The two roles will be Reigns’s first in projects not produced by WWE.

After his role in the film was announced, Reigns wrote about his battle with leukemia and how spending time with Johnson in Hawaii filming the movie has helped him: "The time I‘ve spent with my cousin on this wonderful island has truly been a healing grace. I am grateful to the @wwe @therock @universalpictures and everyone on the set of HOBBS & SHAW, for allowing me to be a part of this franchise.

"All of your outreach and support has been a blessing and it’s only pushed me to get back in the ring as soon as possible.

"But until then...I’m excited for this movie to premiere this summer, our culture and mana in this film is strong!"

On Monday’s (March 25, 2019) Raw, Reigns revealed the amazing news that his leukemia is back in remission! Reigns even got back to action a little bit, coming to the aid of former Shield teammate Dean Ambrose.
