Jose Aldo’s Life to Become a Major Motion Picture

Following in the footsteps of the Matt Hamill biopic Hamill, a movie based on Jose Aldo‘s life is reportedly in the works. According to Fighters Only, film director Afont Poyart — who Google has never heard of, but we’re guessing it’s this guy — is making the final tweaks to the script before starting filming, and the flick is slated to come out by early 2013. Aldo is clearly psyched about the news, telling UOL Desporte:

It’s a dream, right? My life to turn into a movie, a story…I guess those who don’t know either me or my story, will know a little more through this film that we will make. It will tell a lot of stories that previously are known only to close friends.”

Let’s just hope the barbecue pit scene is tastefully done. As for the lead actor, Aldo has an interesting casting idea…

Aldo is a big fan of Brazilian soap operas and suggested actor Malvino Salvador to play his role. “I watch so many soap operas and I am a big fan of him. He’s a guy who gives me a good energy. For me, it would be Malvino Salvador.”

To summarize, Aldo is a soap opera fanatic, and this guy “gives [him] a good energy.” Oh, Jose, you funny little dreamer…

Just give Pee Wee Herman a tan. . . . . cut his face too, I don't think anyone will have a problem with that one.

He should be played by Freddie Prinze jr... With a permed buzzcut, a good tan and beer bottle to the face.... Presto

I'm assuming Jose has never heard of Lou Diamond Phillips.

I'd cast Ken Jeong of Community/The Hangover in the role of notorious CP spammer "zhongbuu".

Okay, we need a relatively short actor with a prominent facial scar who can do a believeable Portuguese accent.

Is Tina Fey available?

Of course, if they ever make a movie about CP commentators, I think George Clooney should play Fried Taco.

I think we're still a little early into Jose's actual life to make a biopic.

I was thinking more of a "Jose and The Pussycats" type flick, with an Arianny moneyshot or seven and Rampage playing Chocolate Al. But that's just me..

Maybe it's because Malvino is from Manaus, too. But I don't know, looking at this picture, I think Malvino may be better to play the part of Joe Rogan.

This guy is just barely a household name to mma fans, who exactly is going to watch this movie?

haha Malvino played a boxer in a sopa opera once, but I believe Aldo was joking
