Photo of the Day: Ronda Rousey Holds a Gun and Scowls on the Set of ‘The Expendables 3′

(Props: epwar on the UG)

Well, we warned you. UFC women’s bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey was recently in Bulgaria filming a role in the latest Expendables sequel, and we just came across this set photo proving that she does get to hold a weapon and be her usual cheery self. Boxing star Victor Ortiz was also rumored to be in the cast, and that appears to be him standing next to Rousey, just happy to be there.

Other than that, the photo gives us a glimpse of the film’s all-star cast, including Sylvester Stallone, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Arnold Schwarzenegger (mostly blocked out by Antonio’s beanie), Dolph Lundgren, and Randy “The Natural, Except When It Comes to Acting” Couture, at least one of whom will likely be arm-barred by Rousey during the film to prove that, hey, this girl is tough.

Real-life action hero Ronda Rousey has booked her first film role, and luckily it has nothing to do with that Hunger Games bullshit. As revealed yesterday by Sylvester Stallone himself, the UFC women’s bantamweight champion will have a part in The Expendables 3, which begins filming next month in Los Angeles; boxing star Victor Ortiz will have a part as well. But don’t worry, the film won’t steal attention from Ronda’s day job. From an MMAFighting report:

According to UFC President Dana White, filming of the movie won’t impact Rousey’s scheduled title defense against Miesha Tate, scheduled on Dec. 28 in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

“That’s why I said, `Yes,” said White via text message. “Ronda listens, unlike others.”

Ouch. That remark was obviously directed at Edward James Olmos.

Sylvester Stallone was on Late Night with David Letterman last night and had some complimentary things to say about his The Expendables co-star Randy Couture (around the 4:09 mark).

Randy Couture Joins Cast of Stallone’s “The Expendables”

(I blame you for this, Samuel L. Jackson hat.)

All that waiting just to see Randy Couture in the Octagon again, and now after one fight he looks to be headed back to the glorious world of film, where people only pretend to punch you in the face. 

Sylvester Stallone has revealed
that Couture will appear in his upcoming movie “The Expendables,” which begins filming this March in Brazil.  The film – a charming little tale about a group of mercenaries who must infiltrate a South American country to overthrow an evil dictator – was written by Stallone and will also be directed by him.

Couture joins an all-star action movie cast that includes Dolph Lundgren, Jet Lei, Jason Statham, and even…wait for it…Forrest Whitaker.  Ghost Dog, son!  How could this not be good?  

If the name of the movie seems familiar in a Stallone context, that’s probably because you’ve seen “Rambo: First Blood Part II,” in which the titular character explains to his improbably attractive Vietnamese friend what the word expendable means: “It’s like someone invites you to a party and you don’t show up?  It doesn’t really matter.”

Sly wrote that script too, so just imagine what’s in store for us when “The Expendables” finally hits screens in 2010.
