Ronda Rousey cast in ‘The Expendables 3′

UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is one of the biggest stars in sports, but she will soon be taking her talents to the theaters. It was announced that Rousey will be taking on an acting role next summer in “The Expendables 3″.

Sylvester Stallone announced the big addition to the cast on Twitter:

Don’t worry, grammar police, Stallone corrected his spelling regarding the WBC welterweight boxing champion in his very next tweet.

Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes, Nicolas Cage and Milla Jovovich will also be new additions to the cast of the film. If reports are accurate, The Expendables 3 will be released on August 15, 2014.

Rousey was previously offered a role in Hunger Games 2, but nothing seemed to come out of that offer, but now her silver screen debut is set.
