11 Famous Actors and Their Embarrassing Early Film Roles

Urijah Faber’s BFF Rosie O’Donnell Thinks He’s Going to Be as Big a Star in Hollywood as ‘The Rock’ [VIDEO]


(“Stick with me, kid, I’ll make you an action star on the Hallmark Channel.”)

Well it looks like one glowing reference Urijah Faber will have on his resume when he starts applying for acting gigs will be from Rosie O’Donnell, which could go a long way if they’re looking to cast a teenage Bam Bam for Flintstones III.

The former WEC champ appeared on Rosie’s show on the Oprah Winfrey Network recently and the actress gushed over him, telling Faber that he has a bright future in movies.

“I wouldn’t want you to [be fighting when you're in your 40s] either, honey, because you’re too charismatic and you’re too kind of… I think you’re going to have a career like ‘The Rock.’ I think you transfer over to showbiz and you could have a full career in movies with karate where you’re the superhero-like kind of guy.”

Besides the odd commercial, Faber says he did some acting as a kid, but explained to Rosie that he isn’t interested in doing casting calls. Sorry to break it to you, Urijah, but unless The Hobbit is looking for extras or a young pre-mountie Dudley Doright is needed for a prequel, you might be waiting a while by the phone for casting directors to call. You aren’t as recognizable as Randy Couture or Gina Carano, and you don’t have the swagger that ‘Rampage’ has.

You do know how to Dougie, though. We’ll give you that.

Well I've never seen Faber attempt acting so.. can't really pass judgement. i agree though, the rock is the man. That's basically what fake wrestling is anyway though, they are just actors.

so i guess im the only one who feels outraged that oprah would put urijahs name in the same boat as DWAYNE FUCKIN JOHNSON whos actually decent actor.

Faber couldn't play a jawa, either. His chin would be sticking out from the cloak thing they wear, giving him away.

Maybe you're confusing sand people with jawas.. I don't think they can be jedis either.. but faber could definitely play one.

There's no jedi sand people you noob. The tusken raiders are a primitive people, weak in the force. I swear I'm not a virgin...

I think you're right. She kept trying to stick her tongue in it.

I think this is all over Rosie's obsession with Urijah's chin more than anything.

You may have the formula for a winning Punch Buddies shirt, EG.

Yub nub.

Are they done with the "Star Wars" flicks? If not, I can definitely see The Cali Kid showing off his acting chops. Best damn Ewok EVAH!
