PLAYERS: Anderson Silva

Via Larry Brown Sports:

Anderson Silva is the latest MMA fighter who will try his hand at acting.

The Brazilian UFC middleweight champion will star in a police movie with his friend Steven Seagal. Seagal is a mixed martial arts instructor who turned into a notable action movie actor. Seagal has actually helped train Silva in past fights.

According to Fighters Only, Silva revealed to Estadao that he received the first draft of the script this week. The movie is supposed to be an action-packed police story.

“I will make a lot of fight scenes and this is also the first time I will act,” Silva tells Estadão (per Fighters Only). “I received a long plot and I will have the opportunity of putting in practice what I have been studying for some time.”

Silva, who beat Stephan Bonnar in October to improve to 33-4, sounds pretty serious about performing well as an actor.

“I don’t want to be seen as somebody who caught the role because I am on the media and to be a fighter. Of course it is difficult, I am not Lorenzo Lamas, but I want to do it well done to the people see that I am a good actor.”

Silva reportedly will begin filming in the US in December.

Randy Couture, Rampage Jackson, Cung Le, and Gina Carano are among the MMA fighters who have gotten into acting. Even Ronda Rousey has said she would be interested in a movie career. It seems like the two just go together.

With Silva’s impressive speed and fighting skills, one has to imagine the action in the movie will be great. His acting may be another story.
