UFC welterweight Georges St-Pierre has scored significant sponsorship opportunities since emerging as one of the organization’s biggest stars and appears ready to take his career to the next level after scoring a sizeable part in a major Hollywood production. Though not a starring role, St-Pierre will play a villain in Marvel’s upcoming Captain America sequel.
According to Latino Review, GSP has been cast as Batroc the Leaper. As if born for the role, the character is French and has an athletic background including martial arts skills.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is scheduled to hit screens in a little more than a year. Chris Evans will return to play the part of Steve Rogers, i.e. Captain America, as he did in 2010’s Captain America: The First Avenger and last 2012’s mega-hit The Avengers.
