What you see above is a clip from Cyborg Soldier, in which former UFC Middleweight Champ Rich Franklin plays, you guessed it, a cyborg soldier. It appears he was sent to protect Kelly Kapowski from better acting jobs. Why is his nose crooked, you ask? I don’t know, but if I had to guess I’d say he got kneed in the face by a newer, blacker cyborg. That’s out on DVD – don’t miss it.
Meanwhile, it seems UFC Welterweight Champ George St. Pierre is also getting into the acting game, as “Crusher” in Hector Echavarria’s Death Warrior. What’s that about, you ask?
The film is about the top fighters in the world coming together having to fight in a deadly game, a game to the death. [mmachump/department of redundancy department]
The other top fighters in question are Rampage Jackson, who will play “Wolf”, and Anderson Silva, who will play “Fuego”. Not much is known about the plot at this time, but I’ve already begun to imagine “Fuego” as a gay Latin robot.
