New, 3 comments

From MMAFanhouse:

The popular athlete who has been a Muay Thai fighter, MMA fighter, American Gladiator and magazine model is reportedly set to star in a spy thriller being helmed by Oscar-award winning director Steven Soderbergh.

The film's title seems apt: Knockout.

Man, what's the deal with all these MMA fighters scoring movie roles?  I'm all for it, as long as the movie role doesn't interfere training camp for upcoming fights.  *Coughs.  Carano never seems comfortable when she's doing MMA interviews, so I wonder how she'll handle that when she's in front of the movie camera in a starring role?
