‘The Natural’, has recently signed on for a roll in a new movie titled “Setup” starring Bruce Willis and 50 Cent. Couture will play a gangster named Pete in the film that has been described as a jewelery heist with a twist. Filming is expected to start early 2011 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Following that, Couture has also signed on for the blockbuster return; Expendables II, which will require Couture on set March 2011.
With no fight contracts setup for the former champion in any of the coming months for the UFC, and now the announcement of Couture’s two latest movie project, Couture may be one of the rare fighters to leave the Octagon on a win-streak.
