WWE Studios have reportedly dropped Randy Orton from the "The Marine: Homefront."

Although there is no official reason given for Orton being dropped, TMZ.com reports that many people have questioned the decision after Orton was kicked out of the Marines prior to joining the WWE.

According to Wikipedia, "Private First Class Orton was tried and convicted under a special court-martial and was put into a military prison for thirty-eight days." after after going AWOL on two separate occasions and disobeying an order from a commanding officer.

TMZ writes:

"WWE demonstrated poor judgment in signing Randy Orton for the 3rd installment of the film. Despite Randy’s popularity, the fact that he was dishonorably discharged from the USMC made it inappropriate for him to be cast in this film."

Marines, including some who served in Orton's former unit, complained about the casting."
