The Streamer Has His Eyes Set on a Career Change
Streamers come in all shapes and sizes, and so do their followings. From the streamers that focus on specific games to those who have a massive following based on playing multiple games, there’s something for everyone. To succeed as a streamer you need a variety of different qualities. You need skill, charisma, presence- qualities that Ninja hopes will help him succeed in Hollywood.
Ninja recently added a cameo in the Ryan Reynolds film Free Guy (Which, frankly, sounds insane) to his live-action accomplishments, which also include a stint on The Masked Singer and several appearances on Family Feud, and in an interview with Hollywood Reporter following filming he revealed that he’s looking for work in Hollywood, whether that be live-action or voice-acting.
Ninja has also reportedly been exploring his own creative ideas and reading scripts in light of Microsoft selling Mixer- the platform he left Twitch to join, abandoning a staggering fourteen million followers in the process- to Facebook.
There’s something major that Ninja fans should keep in mind though: He’s previously raised some controversy by refusing to stream with female gamers out of respect for his wife, so if he keeps the same standards in a hypothetical acting career that could limit his potential roles and hinder his career before it even starts.
However, fourteen million fans is nothing to sniff at- he did, after all, receive a cameo in a movie involving sentient video game characters for a reason- so even if it’s only bit parts, a lot of producers will be eager for the ticket sales his involvement could bring to a project.
