WWE Superstar Bray Wyatt has volunteered to play a role in The Witcher on Netflix after noticing his face among the unused concept art for the first season of the show. Recently, Pixoloid Studios released some alternate designs for potential characters to be featured in The Witcher season one. Ultimately, none of the characters featured made it to the screen, but one of them in particular seems to have the face of Wyatt on the body of a dwarven fighter, and the famous wrestler is making it clear that he's willing to appear on the hit Netflix series for real.
Taking to Twitter, Wyatt posted a photo of the concept art for The Witcher, and at first glance, you'd think it was an actual photo of Wyatt in a costume. "If you need someone to play this role specifically I know a guy who could pull it off," Wyatt says in jest in the caption. The former WWE Universal Champion stated. To make sure Netflix and his followers get the point, Wyatt then bluntly adds: "PS. It's me. Quite literally." Seems like Wyatt was unaware there were tentative plans to feature a character that looked exactly like him in The Witcher and chose to have some fun with it online.
Anything is possible moving forward, as other notable guest stars have been tapped by Netflix to appear in the second season of The Witcher. Similar to Wyatt, Star Wars star Mark Hamill had campaigned for a role on Twitter based on fan art created of himself as Vesemir, though he admitted that he had no idea who the character was. Unfortunately for Hamill, he didn't get the part, as Killing Eve star Kim Bodnia has been announced as the show's version of Vesmir. Meanwhile, Game of Thrones favorite Kristofer Hivju has also been announced to appear in season two as Nivellen.
From Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, The Witcher is based on the original book series by Andrzej Sapkowski. The show stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, the titular "witcher," with Freya Allan and Anya Chalotra also starring. When the series premiered on Netflix last year, it became an instant hit, quickly becoming one of the most-watched shows featured on the streaming service. Netflix was quick to order themselves up another season of the series, which has begun filming prior to the Hollywood shutdown that put a pause on most every major movie and television production. It's not yet clear when season two will premiere.
Because Bray Wyatt is among the most interesting characters featured on WWE programming over the past several years, it's not difficult to see him switching mediums and appearing in something like The Witcher. Wyatt's followers on Twitter appear to be on board with the idea as well, which can only help the wrestler's campaign to appear in the Netflix series. If the casting doesn't happen, we can always catch Wyatt on WWE programming on the WWE Network, which now offers a totally free version with limited content.
