UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey has been dabbling in film, but she could soon land a much bigger role to gain the attention of Hollywood. According to reports, the folks at Warner Bros. are eyeing Rousey for one of the female leads in the upcoming “Entourage” movie.
UFC president Dana White, who has been reluctant to watch his stars take time away for filming in the past, congratulated Rousey on social media.
Congrats Ronda!!! Couldn’t happen to a better person http://t.co/0iaTFCAxUd

When Rousey was working on her previous project, “The Expendables 3,″ while training for a bout at UFC 168 against Miesha Tate, she moved her training camp to Bulgaria to ensure she stayed prepared. Rousey retained her belt and showed that she can handle the double-duty as a star in the octagon and on the silver screen.
Rousey currently has a bout scheduled for Feb. 22 against Sara McMann, so she could be ready to accept a role in “Entourage” once the bout is in the books.
