MMA superstar and UFC welterweight champion Georges “Rush” St-Pierre has been reported to be playing Georges Batroc, aka Batroc the Leaper in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

GSP (top picture, red trunks) hails from Saint Isidore, Quebec, and should have no problem sounding the part of the jumping Frenchman. But while he certainly has the martial arts training and musculature needed to become Batroc, St-Pierre is far from being an actor, and he’ll probably have trouble completely assuming the role of the wise cracking French mercenary (seriously, the guy sounds like a robot in his interviews).

As for Batroc’s role in the movie, I’m speculating he’ll be one of Crossbones’ goons, and you can count on there being a pretty spectacular fight scene with Cap somewhere in there. And I may be looking too deep into this, but the issue that introduced Batroc the Leaper also introduced Sharon Carter. Hmmmm…
