Georges St-Pierre is coming off a relatively easy win over Nick Diaz and GSP is now looking to try his hand in Hollywood. St-Pierre  has locked in a pretty prominent role in Marvel’s next installment of the Captain America series, Captain America:The Winter Soldier: SportsNet MMA analyst Joe Ferraro confirmed the role via twitter:   Just received confirmation that GSP will play “Batroc The Leaper” in Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” due out in Apr 2014. — Joe Ferraro (@ShowdownJoe) March 25, 2013 Word is GSP will be in LA in a few weeks to begin filming the role. — Joe Ferraro (@ShowdownJoe) March 25, 2013 Batroc the Leaper is a French kick boxer and mercenary. His debut in the Marvel universe came in 1966 and GSP seems to be tailor made for this role. Here is a picture of the Marvel character Baroc the Leaper: St-Pierre is set to begin filming the film in May which likely pushes his next fight back a few months to either September or October. A perfect time frame for a possible super fight with Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva.
