History may repeat itself - Ronda Rousey has reportedly been offered a role on the sequel to The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

Dave Meltzer has the scoop.

"There was a very good chance that the promotion of Rousey was TOO successful because she's been offered a role in the next...whatever it is...the next Hunger Games movie that they're going to film. And once that happens it's like...you know, who knows?

"She's making a lot of money fighting, I don't know what those numbers are going to be when they come out when they're released. But she's making a ton of money. They signed her to a hell of a contract because they really did believe...not necessarily that she'd be this giant PPV draw, but in other ways she'd be incredibly valuable to the company.

"And so far she has turned out to be more valuable than they expected."

I was worried Hunger Games would be retarded like Twilight, it wasn't IMO. The book was a little better than the movie (just like with Stephen King's The Running Man). The way they did makeup and costumes, I'm curious what she'll end up looking like.http://www.thejanedough.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/elizabeth-banks-effie-trinket.jpgHad no idea that was Elizabeth Banks.

If you're honest, so are 99% of actresses before they get caked with makeup.Normal Ronda is average but when she's all done up holy shit is she smoking hot.

One of my pets peeves, there is no such thing as a Great Uncle in that sense. You have your Dad or Mom's uncle which would be your Grand Uncle and you have your Grandfathers uncle which would be your Great Grand Uncle.

The rumor is true.   They've also approached Cris Santos for a  battle to the death scene.   Ronda                                                                        VS    Cyborg "the natural" Santos
