Georges St. Pierre has landed a role in one of the biggest movies we've yet seen a UFC star associated with according to his latest tweet...sort of.
GSP tweeted out earlier today that he has lent his voice to Disney / Pixar for the French-Canadian version of the animated film. Here's the tweet:

Monsters University is a prequel to Monsters Inc. and follows main characters Sully and Mike during their "college" days at (of course) Monsters University.
Monsters Inc. did $562,816,256 in total business (U.S. release and international) the first time around so the follow-up is likely to do similarly big business.
While it's just the French-Canadian version that will feature GSP in a role, it's still another one of those nice moments that we all like to cling to where a fighter is being given a "mainstream opportunity."
