Latino Review has shared the scoop that MMA fighter Georges St-Pierre has been chosen to play the larcenous Batroc the Leaper in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. He joins two other confirmed villains for the project Crossbones (Frank Grillo) and the returning Arnim Zola (Toby Jones). St-Pierre (a.k.a. GSP), a native of French-speaking Quebec, is a multi-title-winning favorite of the UFC circuit. He is a practitioner of Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Muay Thai, and kyokushin kaikan. He currently holds the UFCs Welterweight Championship title. Batroc first appeared in 1966 and has remained one of the Marvel Universes most enduring (and endearing) villains. A French mercenary in peak human physical condition, Batroc has regularly opposed Captain America (despite having no superpowers to speak of).

GSP is in crazy shape. I don’t know if he can act though.
Alors; both the acteur and the character are named Georges.
Either can Stallone or Schwartznegger.
When he fights Captain America, it’ll go to the judges.
