Anderson Silva to Make His Acting Debut in Cop Movie With Steven Seagal

(“It’s a romantic comedy called ‘You’ve Got Wrist-Locks.’ You play my girlfriend’s father, and you don’t approve of our relationship because I’m so fucking old and gross.”)

File this one under not sure if awesome. According to a new report from Estadão (via Fighters Only), UFC middleweight king Anderson Silva will be filming a role in an action-packed “police story” alongside, who else, Steven Seagal. Silva received the first script draft this week, and is heading to the U.S. to shoot the flick after he gets back from a vacation in Dubai. As Silva explained:

I will make a lot of fight scenes and this is also the first time I will act. I received a long plot and I will have the opportunity of putting in practice what I have been studying for some time.”

Wait, here’s the best part:

I don’t want to be seen as somebody who caught the role because I am on the media and to be a fighter. Of course it is difficult, I am not Lorenzo Lamas, but I want to do it well done to the people see that I am a good actor.”

LOL, Lorenzo freakin’ Lamas! That’s the first (and surely last) time we’ve heard that guy’s name used as a standard for fine acting. (“Is Andy a good actor? Well, he’s no dude-from-Renegade, but I suppose he’ll do.”)

Unfortunately, Steven Seagal is no Lorenzo Lamas either, but he’ll probably get top billing on this thing. And from what we’ve heard about Seagal’s notorious on-set behavior, Silva had better keep his distance unless he wants to get Leguizamo’d. By the way, Seagal’s IMDB page still describes him as “somewhat boyishly handsome.” I don’t know. I just thought that was funny.

In the absence of any other info about this movie, feel free to guess the plot of this upcoming police drama in the comments section.

I was thinking about this, and wondering if they are going to dub over his voice to make it sound more manly. Like they did for Gina Carano.

Also I sincerely hope it's a Turner and Hootch remake. Don't care who's the dog,be good either way.

Even the red shirted screen writer in the background seem to say," this is really gonna happen,huh? Should write more scripts on cocktail napkins"

Steven Segal is so fat that he looks 3D even in 2D films. And his acting is so flat it's still one dimensional in 3D.

Caption is amazing BTW.

"What in amazement as a Mixed Martial Interracial Couple fight through hordes of bad guys in order to save the girl in what is the most action packed love story of the Summer"

Seagal & Silva - MMIC
Arianny & Palmer - The Girls
Sonnen - Bag Guy #1
Special cameo by Weidman

"Watch it in 3D for one whole extra dimension".

Anderson is drug dealer out of Miami's worst high school. He's also known for his lethal capoeira. Segal is a mercenary posing as a substitute teacher. Steven Segal is... Only The Substitute.

Silva's a bad guy, leads a gang, badass at fighting and tearing up the streets. Since no one else can do anything, they come seek after Segal who's sitting in his chair smoking a cigar. Then the old man goes and saves the day and tries to act like a total fucking badass. In reality, hes a douche who needs to just go the fuck away. The end.

The Lorenzo Lamas name drop is unreal. I bet Lorenzo wouldn't duck Weidman, because hes a bad bad man

I hope Silva took acting and speech lessons. But not from Segal!

It's a story about an aging and overweight action movie star who now only makes straight-to-DVD releases. He is upset that no one is buying DVDs anymore, and sets out to bring down the Chinese triad that owns all the torrent sites.

First they hate each other, then they grudgingly admit they respect each other after some asshole tried to kill them both, then they start to bum each other. (that's fuck each others asses for you Americans)
