Ronda Rousey may be focused on her new career with WWE that includes an upcoming shot at the women’s title, but occasionally the former UFC champion still steps in front of the camera for an acting role.
Rousey has a role in the upcoming movie “Mile 22” where she co-stars alongside Mark Wahlberg and Lauren Cohan, who is best known for her role in the hit series ‘The Walking Dead’.
When ‘Mile 22’ was first conceptualized, Rousey was expected to be in the starring role but over time she morphed into a supporting part alongside Wahlberg, who will now headline the movie.
Here’s the official description for the movie:
“In a visceral modern thriller from the director of Lone Survivor, Mark Wahlberg stars as James Silva, an operative of the CIA’s most highly-prized and least understood unit. Aided by a top-secret tactical command team, Silva must retrieve and transport an asset who holds life-threatening information to Mile 22 for extraction before the enemy closes in.”
‘Mile 22’ opens in theaters on Aug. 3.
