(He was an immortal witch hunter with a heart of gold. She was anything but Expendable. This summer, Vin Diesel and Ronday Rousey star in “The Last Do-Nothing-Bitch Hunter.”)
With each passing day, it seems that the likelihood of seeing Ronda Rousey‘s return to octagon diminishes exponentially. She may be back to eating solid foods once again, but even some five months removed from her knockout loss to Holly Holm, Rousey is still very much struggling to come to terms with her future in the sport.
“I’m still grieving the person that could have won it all. But I have to live up to the fact that I’m not her,” said Rousey in an interview as part of her shoot for the Time 100. But with no date set for her return, it leaves one to wonder just what career path we’ll see Rousey take in the meantime.
The obvious answer seems to be “acting.” Even if the former champion doesn’t exactly have the range of a Helen Mirren or a Topanga from Boy Meets World, Rousey’s got a handful of feature film roles under her belt and an SNL hosting gig to boot, so it’s not like she’s a rookie in the art of playing make believe for lots and lots of money. The woman is feministic superhero, for crying out loud. Her built-in audience is literally 50% of humanity!
What I’m getting at is, maybe the news that Rousey has signed a three movie deal with the Lifetime network shouldn’t be all that strange to learn. But it is. It soooo is, you guys.
