Peyton Manning is a former American Football quaterback who voiced Guapo in Ferdinand.
Manning was the voice-actor for Guapo. Manning remarked that voicing Guapo was a lot of fun and was flattered when the creators approached him. 
Director Carlos Saldanha believes that Manning could portray the character with his confidence and own experience. When Manning asked Saldanha "why’d [he] want [him] to be this character", he told him, "Because I keep imagining you in your position, with all you have—the skills, the body, the mindset. Don’t you sometimes have anxiety before you get into a game? I want to tap into that side of you—how did you overcome that?" and he got it instantly.
It’s something that I kind of wanted to be a part of, just to be able to watch this film with my kids and to see them laugh knowing maybe that’s their dad up there, onscreen. That’s kind of a cool thing at this moment because of their age and because animated films are so popular with my kids and certainly a lot of kids their age. 
Manning also felt that it connected to him a lot as he has children and animated films had a huge appeal to them.
