Georges St-Pierre Lands Role In Upcoming Film ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’

UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre talked about taking a vacation after defeating Nick Diaz, and we may know why now.

According to the Latino Review, GSP has been cast as Batron the Leaper in the upcoming film “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”

The movie is scheduled to be released on April 4, 2014, so production would likely take place in the coming months.

St-Pierre’s character sounds like a clone of himself, as he is a mercenary and a master in the French form of kickboxing called savate. He has no super powers, but is an Olympic-level weightlifter and is agile with quick reflexes.

The film stars Chris Evans as Captain America, with roles also laid out for the likes of Samuel L. Jackson and Scarlett Johansson.

For GSP, this would be a great way to gain some added notoriety, as the Marvel comic movies have been a big hit over the recent years.
