Russ Says: Modern Family Meets WWE In This Weekend's Adorable Movie The Chaperone

While in Anaheim for Monday Night Raw, February 14th, I had a chance to speak with Modern Family‘s Ariel Winter who stars in the WWE Film, The Chaperone along with WWE superstar Triple H. The Chaperone, which hits theaters Feb. 18, is the story of Ray Bradstone (Paul “Triple H” Levesque), a reformed bank robber who once released from prison tries to reconnect with his daughter, Sally (Ariel Winter). Redemption goes awry as he ends up chaperoning Sally’s class trip to the New Orleans Natural History Museum. Imagine Kindergarten Cop meets Speed and you have The Chaperone!

“I feel like I was Sandra Bullock in Speed” the 13-year-old star tells exclusively adding, “Driving the bus was a lot of fun, and a major part in the film that gets my family back together.” But she had more praise for her co-star Triple H, “He was the nicest, most awesome guy in the world. We had so much fun making this movie. He looks so big and scary at first, but he is actually a big teddy bear!”

Triple H and his character, Ray, might look intimidating but both have a heart of gold. Here’s more reasons to see the flick:

* Yeardly Smith, best known as the voice of Lisa Simpson, shows a different side of her humor, this time in front of the camera. It’s an interesting and fun change to witness!

* Ariel Winter, best known as Alex Dunphy in Modern Family shows her range and actually gives future casting directors an easy choice on who to select in their films. She is a breath of fresh air!

* Triple H proves that being a wrestler and an actor go hand in hand, I mean look at what Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has done with his career!


If you are a kid at heart and want to see a fun family film that delivers both in laughs and emotion, make sure to see The Chaperone this weekend! Three out of four killer stars for sure!
