    Rhonda has an opportunity to break down another barrier by being the only female in MMA to have a lead role in multiple block buster films.

    Rousey should do the movies imho.

    Cool. I doubt she'll have a very big role though. Probably about as much screen time as Li or Norris in the second movie.

    I don't find Rousey particularly interesting. I think Carano would act--and fight--circles around her.
    But then again, I didn't find the expendables [or the A team] to be worth the time it took to watch them, so meh.

    At this point in her career, I doubt Rousey is going to make more acting than she would fighting.

    She isn't close to making Jennifer Lawrence movie money, in the same way that Tecia Torres isn't close to making Ronda Rousey fight money.

    I think the biggest issue for me is taking away the focus fighters need to stay at the elite level. It was the kiss of death for an already-distracted rampage.

    Dana specifically mentioned her as the lead role.

    It's not just about the money. By getting into movies Rhonda not only expands her brand and increases her sponsorship opportunities and marketability but also she'll be sitting on a movie set with the legends of action film for a guaranteed payday instead of in a sweaty gym for the chance to maybe defend her title.

    Is Expendables 2 out? If set up correctly the filming could be done on Rousey's vacation time, assuming she is not a major player in the movie, which if anyone saw the RouseyBooBoo (Parody of HoneyBooBoo) thing then that would be a safe assumption.

    Cash in while you can I guess eh? How many movies are they going to ask Rhonda to star in after someone eventually smashes her face? Im betting on 0.

    They already did the Charlie's Angels movies.

    I wish Dana even occasionally had to back up his rants with facts.
