Andy Ruiz Movie Role Ain’t For Me

… Here’s Why

Michael Pena has played everyone from Cesar Chavez to Luis in “Ant-Man” … but the one role you WON’T see him in is heavyweight boxing champ, Andy Ruiz

… and why?

“Because I’d have to gain a lot of weight, my wife would kill me!”

Don’t get it twisted, Pena has a ton of respect for Ruiz and thinks he has a great story to tell … but Ruiz is 270 lbs — and Pena is wayyyyy smaller. 

Of course, Ruiz shot to superstardom by knocking out undefeated heavyweight superstar Anthony Joshua — despite being a HEAVY betting underdog. 

What’s interesting … Pena — who’s been in a TON of movies — says he doesn’t think  Ruiz’s story is ready for the big screen yet because he’d like to see the guy win a few more fights first. 

So, who SHOULD play the new champ?

… wonder if Gabriel Iglesias is available!?
