UFC Georges St Pierre

UFC welterweight king Georges St-Pierre (pictured) may have finally met his match. According to Latino Review, St-Pierre will be taking his talents to the silver screen to play a villain on “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” 

GSP will serve as Batroc the Leaper.

The film is currently in production and is slated to open April 4, 2014.

St-Pierre’s inclusion comes as a bit of a surprise considering the movie is already packed with bad guys like Crossbones (Frank Grillo), Arnim Zola (Toby Jones) and the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan).

In addition, Batroc isn’t one of Captain America’s primary rivals, so St-Pierre will likely fulfill more of a henchman role.

“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is the sequel to “Captain America: The First Avenger,” which hit the big screen in July 2011.

This isn’t the first time St-Pierre has acted in front of a camera. He previously appeared in “Never Surrender,” “Hell’s Chain” and “Death Warrior.” All three flicks were released in 2009.
