UFC megastar Conor McGregor is headed to the big screen.
McGregor, who last fought in 2021, will star alongside actor Jake Gyllenhaal in Amazon Prime’s remake of the 1989 action film “Road House.”
The film marks the controversial fighter’s first motion picture credit. According to the outlet, McGregor’s role was not disclosed but he will portray an original character in the film instead of playing himself.
“Conor McGregor is very excited to expand his storied career to Hollywood and join with Jake Gyllenhaal in this reimagining of ‘Road House,’ a beloved classic,” said McGregor’s spokesperson.
“While fighting remains his top focus, this is the beginning of another successful venture in the McGregor empire. He is eager to get started filming.”
