03:56 PM ET 03.28 | UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre will be showing off his acting chops over the next few months in the Marvel hit, "Captain America: The Winter Soldier." The film is scheduled to be released on April 4, 2014. St-Pierre will be portraying one of the villains in the Marvel sequel, Batroc the Leaper. St-Pierre essentially has to play an athlete in peak condition that has Olympic athleticism and is a French mixed martial artist. Tough gig, GSP. Batroc also speaks French and English, so that will help the athlete out when he puts himself into character.
